The wild carrot is native to Europe, Asia, and North Africa. It was introduced to North America in the 1600s, and the seeds were used medicinally and for seasoning food and drink. Cultivation of this varietal for seed oil extraction mostly occurs in France today. An annual herb, it has a white, inedible root (unlike the common eating varietal) and has a distinctly branched stem with umbels of small white flowers.
About The Oil
Also known as Queen Anne’s Lace, and considered by some as a common weed, our Carrot seed oil is steam distilled from the seeds of carrots wild-grown in France. The oil is pale yellow and is light and fluid in viscosity.
Being a highly nutritious plant, the seeds from the Daucus carota plant have been used in traditional Eastern and Western medical practice for centuries. The seeds contain substantial amounts of Vitamins A, B1, B2 and C.
