We use organic Carrots to make our own infused Carrot Root Oil. We put loads of thinly sliced dehydrated organic carrots into a pot of organic sunflower oil. The oil is steeped using a gentle heat for weeks until we get a rich, orange oil with the scent of carrots.
Although carrot root oil can be made at home using fresh carrots, carrots contain over 90% water. The water content of the carrots will not only cause the oil to go rancid but the oil and the products in which the oil is used will also grow bacteria and mold.
Carrots are rich in nutrients such as vitamins A, C, and E, beta-carotene, and many other antioxidants that have skin conditioning properties. Antioxidants are believed to help fight tissue damage caused by free radicals and help rejuvenate sun-exposed and mature skin.
Skin Care Benefits: Carrot root oil is a splendid moisturizing base for dry or mature skin products. Rich with nutrients from the carrot root, the soothing properties of the oil have been used to ease symptoms of irritated skin conditions such as dermatitis, eczema, and rashes. It is reputed to even skin tone and pigmentation.
Hair Care Benefits: This nutrient-rich, moisturizing oil helps encourage scalp circulation which strengthens the hair roots and helps promote stronger healthier hair growth. The nourishing and moisturizing properties of carrot oil make hair softer, smoother and shinier.
