If you are not familiar with carrot oil before, it can be difficult to know how to use it. Below you will find some tips on how the oil can be used.
On the hair
If you have problems with dry and split hairs – pour a few drops of carrot oil into a bowl and drip the tops. Massage the oil and leave it to rinse or rinse part of the oil with warm water after a few minutes.
You can also take a few drops of oil and warm it between your hands before spreading it throughout the hair – from the scalp to the tops. Massage it carefully into the scalp to reach all hair follicles.
Also, remember that the massage contributes to the stimulation of the hair growth because it gets the blood circulation going.
By mixing carrot oil with, for example, almond or jojoba oil, you can make a gentle hair wrap. Distribute throughout the hair, wrap the hair in a towel and leave for 30 minutes or overnight. You can also use a plastic bag.
On the skin
If you want to use carrot oil instead of regular body lotion, we recommend that you dilute it with another oil (for example almond oil) as it is quite viscous.
Extra well, the oil acts as an After sun as it is gentle while helping the skin to recover after a day in the sun.
If you have skin problems, such as psoriasis or eczema, you can gently lubricate the area with a few drops of oil.
You can also lubricate nails and cuticles to provide extra nutrition and keep them strong and healthy.
On the face
Apply a few drops of carrot oil under your night cream before going to bed. You can also use it in the morning during your day cream for extra protection and nutrition.
By mixing a few drops of carrot oil with honey, hot water and oatmeal you can get an exfoliating and softening face mask. Apply to cleansed skin and do not forget about the neck. Let sit for 10 minutes before rinsing with warm water.
You can also mix your foundation with a few drops of oil for extra luster and a golden tone.
Which carrot oil should I choose?
Here we share some selected products that we think are extremely good.
1. Loelle Carrot Seed Oil EKO
Loelle is a well-known brand in natural skin care. Their carrot oil is organic and cold pressed, which means that a large part of all important nutrients remain after the pressing.
The carrot oil is diluted with sunflower oil and is easily absorbed by skin and hair. It can be used every day and thanks to the smart bottle it is easy to dispense the oil.
If you choose Loelle’s carrot oil, you get 30 ml for 79 kroner, which I think is a very affordable price given the high quality of the oil.
Many customers are happy with this oil – especially those with dry skin – and pay tribute to its ability to give the skin a healthy glow.
2. Rose series Organic Carrot Oil
The rose series also offers a cold pressed and organic carrot oil, however, this variant is slightly more expensive than the others.
However, this carrot oil is not only natural and eco-certified which makes it a climate smarter alternative than imported oils.
The oil mixture is also the slightly more advanced one – the carrot extract has been mixed with, among other things, avocado, sunflower and wheat germ oil. This, probably together with the production, is the reason for the high price tag of the oil.
You easily dispense the oil with the bottle pump and it can be used all year round for a soft and supple skin. Of course, it can be used in the hair to provide extra nutrition.

3. Crearome Carrot Oil
Crearome carrot oil gives your skin and hair a huge vitamin boost. The oil suits all skin types and gives the skin a lovely shine.
The carrot extract has been mixed with avocado, thistle and apricot kernel oil, all of which have beneficial properties.
There are many reasons to invest in a good carrot oil. Thanks to its many uses, this is a versatile oil that can be used around the hair, both for hair, skin and face.
Think about choosing a cold pressed variant if you want to find as much nutritional content as possible. You should also check what other oils are added to the mixture and see what effects they can have on your skin.
Last but not least, keep in mind that carrot oil easily stains off textiles. Therefore, give the oil extra time to sink into the skin and do not use too much!
