The aroma of archaic memories. It smells of old wood and old leather, of old dwellings and the subtle musk of human habitation. It welcomes us to the ground. It helps us sense the hearth in the darkness, hidden roots, the comfort of belonging. Its subtle sweetness lingers in its aroma of embodiment.
We chose to sell this oil because of its ability to help us reach hidden and far-away aspects of ourselves, while at the same time keeping us grounded. It is for this reason that we find it useful coupled with oils for memory and shadow work when working with ancestors. With this ancestral work, it helps us understand the lives and contexts that our ancestors were living in and liberates any judgements we may have been holding. Carrot seed also is very balancing. It helps us find a balance between all aspects of the self so we can integrate lost and shadow elements.
The carrot seed oil we are now offering is from Florent, our distiller in France and it is wild-crafted and has a unique power. It is a little more expensive than our prior carrot seed oil but we feel it is well worth it.
This oil is produced under a French group of medicinal plant producers and harvesters. Their mission is very strict regarding the environment, the conservation of plant resources and the quality of distillation. These producers are in rural, mountainous, non-polluted areas. This oil is wild-crafted.
