Carrot Seed Essential Oil traces its roots back to ancient civilisations, where it was revered for its medicinal properties and used in traditional herbal practices. The wild carrot, also known as Queen Anne's Lace, is the parent plant of Daucus carota and is native to Europe and Asia. Over time, this botanical variety was selectively cultivated to enhance its aromatic and healing characteristics.
