Carrot Seed Hydrosol

The aroma of Carrot Seed Hydrosol is somewhat similar to that of the essential oil (earthy and woody). I, however, find the hydrosol to be a bit brighter/sharper in aroma than the essential oil.

Botanical Name: Daucus carota

Aromatic Strength: Medium (Some may find it strong)

Shelf Life: Up to 2 years if stored properly (refrigeration is recommended).

Reported Properties, Uses and Applications: Topically, Suzanne Catty states that Carrot Seed Hydrosol is helpful for rashes, inflammation and skin irritation, eczema and psoriasis. She states it helps promote healthy new skin cells and that it's great after skin treatments and for razor burn. [Suzanne Catty, Hydrosols: The Next Aromatherapy (Rochester, VT: Healing Arts Press, 2001), 90.]

Len and Shirley Price report that the Carrot Seed Hydrosol that they analyzed consists of approximately 28-49% alcohols and 12-36% esters and possesses the following properties: "antifungal, antiinfectious, antiinflammatory, antispasmodic, antiviral, balancing the the nerves, bactericidal, calming, cicatrizant, decongestant, stimulating and uplifting." [Len Price and Shirley Price, Understanding Hydrolats: The Specific Hydrosols for Aromatherapy: A Guide for Health Professionals (London: Churchill Livingstone, 2004), 108.]

Jeanne Rose adds that the hydrosol made from carrot tops (not the seeds) is "anti-inflammatory, soothes irritated, itchy, dry skin". [Jeanne Rose, 375 Essential Oils and Hydrosols (Berkeley, CA: Frog, Ltd, 1999), 172.]

Safety Information: Read AromaWeb's Hydrosol Safety Guidelines.
