Guide - Carrot Seed EO
The Story :
Wild Carrot has white flowering buds that develop into umbels and give off a warm, amber scent that is unique to it. It is very common in natural grasslands.
It is believed that the carrot was discovered 5000 years ago in what is now Afghanistan or Iran. This is followed by a long journey through the centuries that will take it, according to human explorations, to the Middle East, Asia, Africa, as well as Europe where carrots were cultivated since the 18th century. Carrots did not appear in North America until after 1600, and only took their place in human food much later, at the end of the First World War.
Carrots are now grown in almost every corner of the world, except in some tropical regions that this vegetable cannot tolerate.
