While stopping by the Essential Oil stand at the grocery store, I found Carrot Seed Essential Oil. I’ve never heard of it before then. I got it, knowing that the essential oil quality of that grocery store is one of the best.
When I came home I read about it, to find it such an amazing oil for face and hair, with much more uses. For me, I have been using it for skin care, and I’m so much in love with it. For it hydrates skin and hair, has a warm woodsy scent, and helps through occasional skin irritations.
Love your face by making this recipe:
In an empty 15 ml bottle, add:
1. 2 drops Carrot Seed
2. 2 drops Lavender
4. 2 drops Tea Tree
5. Fill the bottle up to the top with a carrier oil of your choice. Apply a few drops to your face morning and night as part of your skin care routine and watch your face change!
Listed oils may not be available in your cabinet, you can always use what you have amongst them. Just make sure you never add more drops of essential oils, and always test a drop on your hand or so to make sure you’re not allergic to any!
***Disclaimer*** Essential oil disclaimer: This recipe uses what are generally considered safe essential oils, but please keep in mind that while completely natural, all essential oils are powerful plant compounds that you and your family (including your pets) might have a reaction to. Never use essential oils undiluted or take essential oils internally (diluted or undiluted) without the guidance of a professional, and always read up about the possible side effects of each type of oil before you use it. Avoid the use of essential oils (diluted or undiluted) during the first trimester of pregnancy, on small babies, and on anyone with severe allergies to the plants the oils are derived from. And if you see any reactions in yourself, your family, or your pets, stop use of your essential oil products immediately and contact a medical professional.
When using essential oils, be careful and read the instructions on the label. Misusing essential oils could be harmful.
The topical application of essential oils may prove to be extra beneficial because the transdermal properties of the oil permeate your skin and enter your bloodstream faster. Your olfactory nerve receptors also sense the smell and send signals to your brain.
However, before topical application, you should patch test oils on your skin by rubbing a small drop on the inside of your wrist and letting it sit for 24 hours. If there is no reaction within this time, the essential oil may be safe for you to use. Patch test essential oils every time before using them on children. We do not recommend using essential oils on babies younger than one-year-old.
