This is a really earthy EO and while I don't hate it, I really have to be in the mood for it. Upon arrival the whole inside of the box smelled like this because it had leaked out. Just picking it up the oil got everywhere and left a lasting scent! The bottle was filled up to the top and so I think that is why it leaked out. There is plenty left but I was disappointed that it got everywhere!
I have a really hard time accepting this smell , but the lotions I've made with it have sold out. Either you love it or you hate it! I have not had the pleasure of smelling carrot EOs from other companies, but I can definitely confirm Brambleberry's is potent, and I've had repeat buyers with it. I am going to try mixing it with a sweeter EO in my next batch just to make myself happy
I used the carrot seed oil, a small amount of Fresh Zucchini Flower fragrance, the orange colorant. They came out amazing, I love the mixture of the scent its so earthy and makes me think of getting out into the garden in the spring. Very nurishing for older skin like mine! The color came out great it is such a simplistic bar I plan to decorate with a band of burlap fabric and twine with homemade tag. My friends will love this! Thanks Brambleberry love this one!
I made a love facial oil blend and decided to add this carrot seed essential oil to boost it up. At first I was miserable with the scent but it's funny how the scent becomes likeable, truly it does. After using it for a week I noticed the tiny bumps on my forehead were gone. After two weeks, the wrinkles around my eyes seem to be less crows feet, more faint. Overall my skin feels and looks healthier and dare I say, younger.
This scent can easily become overbearing as it is very strong. That being said, I love it. Super scary sniffing right out of the bottle, or while your product is still warm, it'll knock your socks off with a POW... but once cooled, settles down nicely. I combined this scent with D'anjou pear, Juniper Sage, and a small bit of Litsea Cubeba (I think I am missing a note in there, probably lavender) and although interesting, is something I can't help but keep sniffing. It is herbal, and the first descriptive word for this smell that comes to mind is "earthy" followed by "healthful." Would make a great gardeners scented product. I used it (with those other scents mentioned) in shampoo/conditioner.
