It's a bit rough and unvarnished looking, but hey ho...:)

Daucus carota




Carrot is naturally antiseptic and rejuvenating and is good for dry, damaged, aging or blemished skin. It is high in beta carotene and vitamins B,C,D and E.


Cooked mashed carrots are beneficial to the skin when applied as a face mask or as a drawing poultice. Carrot face masks can be tailored to the needs of the skin simply by mixing it with a variety of nourishing ingredients such as oatmeal, honey, lemon juice, cream, yoghurt and papaya, to name but a few.


Infused carrot oil can be made to include in nourishing and healing skin care products such as masks, creams, lotions, facial and massage oils blends, lip balms and soaps. To make carrot oil, peel and grate two fresh carrots. Place in the crock of a slow cooker and pour in enough oil to cover. The oil that you choose will depend on skin type – olive, almond and sunflower are all good choices. Coconut oil makes a solid orange oil that can be blended with other soft oils and stored in the refrigerator to be used as a face cream. Once the oil has been poured over the carrots, place the lid on the slow cooker and cook on the lowest setting until the grated carrot is very soft and the oil has turned orange. Allow to cool then pour into a glass bottle.
