Carrot oil is both a carrier oil (or massage oil) and an essential oil. The two are very different in chemical make-up and extraction and should be used with caution. In addition, both carrot carrier oil and carrot essential oil are extracted from the wild carrot - not the domestic carrot.
As you can see, confusion between carrier oils and essential oils is common as well as the confusion between similar essential oils! Last week I profiled the differences between the different types of rose oil and a profile on rose hip carrier oil. Previously, I have written articles on oregano and marjoram, pelargoniums and geraniums, the chamomile essential oils, the lavender essential oils and the sage essential oils.
Knowing these similarities and differences between many carrier oils and essential oils, it is advisable to learn all you can about any carrier oil and/or essential oil before using them to avoid the confusion.
