Carrot Seed Oil (And Other New Additions)

Here are 4 New-To-Me Essential Oils that I was lucky enough to add to my Essential Oil Collection.  I ordered from Piping Rock again and found some lovely blends - as you can see above - but also the Carrot Seed Oil that I have been wanting.

Come to find out Carrot Seed Oil tends to be overlooked or comes in as an underdog of sorts.  Below is some info I found about it...

Carrot seed oil is perhaps one of the most under-appreciated essential oils. But it is known to have antiseptic, carminative, cytophylactic, depurative, diuretic, emmenagogue, and vermifuge properties

Here are just some of the other well-known health benefits of carrot seed oil:
Heals abscesses, boils, and other skin disorders
Nourishes , tightens, and rejuvenates skin
Alleviates pain due to menstruation
Helps stimulate appetite
Treats ulcers
Improves liver and gall bladder disorder, particularly hepatitis, colitis, and enteritis
Stimulates the lymph system
Helps women in breast milk production after childbirth
Eases hiccups, colic, and flatulence
Treats kidney stones and jaundice

Personally - I decided to grab this because of the mentions of healing abscesses and boils, Colitis, Lymph System Benefits, and I also read it can be good for Arthritis!

Some recipes and ideas I found to be interesting include:
Carrot Seed Oil Skin Cleanser
Carrot Seed Oil Make-Up Remover
Carrot Seed Oil Scar Treatment
