#D.I.Y: CARROT SEED OIL

Hey fam, How you all doing?

I’ve been keeping this post in my draft for couple of weeks now. Damn, I’m so lazy, it’s not my fault tho. I have been having a very tight schedule this days which is due to the fact that I’ve been reposted to a high traffic branch and I hardly get free time.

Carrots are not just vegetables for the kitchen anymore. They are now part of beauty routine which are helpful in building soft and supple skin and also aiding in hair growth.

Carrots are rich in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals which protect, nourish and moisturize the skin. It is rich in Vit B,C,D and E and contains over 600 carotenoids (powerful antioxidants); The most important being Beta-carotene, which our body converts into active vitamin A. Carrots acts as am anti-inflammatory and revitalise and tone the skin.

Carrot seed oil is an essential oil. Carrot seed oil are used to treat dermatitis, eczema, rashes and wrinkles caused by free radicals. They are great addition to any DIY sunscreen with a natural SPF of approximately 38. Wooooow 🤓

Carrot seed oil is also antibacterial. They are good for split ends and damage from chemical treatments. Carrot seed oil is very easy to make at home.

HOW TO MAKE CARROT SEED OIL YOURSELF

TOOLS & INGREDIENTS

  • 5-6 carrots
  • Oil of your choice; either coconut oil/olive oil/sunflower oil
  • A clean glass jar
  • Hand grater
  • Strainer

PROCEDURE

  1. Wash and peel the skin of the carrots
  2. Grate the carrots with hand grater into a clean bowl
  3. Place the grater carrots in the clean glass jar and cover with oil of your choice.
  4. Cover the jar and place in a warm spot like a window sill or behind the refrigerator for at least 2 weeks. This process is called macerating.
  5. Shake everyday. The beta-carotene & fat soluble vitamins will dissolve in the oil. And the oil will take a pale orange color.
  6. After 2 weeks, strain the oil using a mesh strainer into another clean jar.
  7. Store in a cool dry place.

That’s all fam, it’s quite easy. I made mine already since February and it’s a pity I didn’t take pictures 😭😭. I downloaded some for you guys on Pinterest 💋
