Carrot Root Essential Oil is a C02 extract from the familiar carrot. It is actually an emulsion of carrot root extract and jojoba oil, because the undiluted form would be too thick for typical applications. It is distinct from Carrot Seed Essential Oil, though the two oils are complementary and share a number of beneficial properties. Like Carrot Seed Essential Oil, Carrot Root Essential Oil is one of the most valuable oils when it comes to skin and hair care. In addition, it's also used in aromatherapy for its detoxifying effects and for its powerful anti-aging properties.
