Fragrance side

The carrot essence oil blossoms in the heart of the spicy and fruity heads. It is often found associated with woody notes or to accompany an Iris chord with ionones and irony.

Regenerating, it opens up resources to free up frustration and anger, gives a sense of security and serenity.

The carrot is a biennial plant with a well-known orange root. The erect stems have very finely serrated, hairy leaves. The tiny white flowers are grouped in dense umbels, with a single blood-red flower in the center. They bloom in late spring and early summer, before bearing fruit. At maturity, the umbel radii straighten to protect the seeds, forming what resembles a small bird’s nest.
Probably originally from Afghanistan, the carrot was introduced in Europe 600 years ago. It grows in the wild mainly in Europe and India. Essential oil production is centered almost entirely in France, an industry that saw a boom during World War II. Great amounts of carrot seed essential oil were distilled to flavor food substitutes. In traditional European medicine, carrot seeds are among the warm seeds listed in the universal dictionary of medical and therapeutic materials, along with parsley, anise, caraway, coriander, and fennel.

Seed harvest takes place from June to November in the second year of cultivation. The seeds are dried and crushed before being distilled.
