The humble carrot has been known as a medicinal plant as well as a culinary one, at least since the time of Dioscorides (1st Century AD).

The essential oil which is distilled from the seeds is pale yellow in colour, with the characteristic smell of carrots. Its active constituents include principally carotol, daucol, limonene and pinene.  The true distillation is from the wild carrot sometimes called Queen Anne’s Lace. 

Carrot Seed has a powerful tonic action on the liver and gall-bladder, and is used in cases of jaundice and other liver disorders.
