It has excellent liver detoxifying properties and could be helpful in cases of jaundice as well as helping expel kidney stones. Carrot Seed is also known to help ease fluid retention. For fluid retention use two drops Carrot Seed and four drops Grapefruit in 10ml carrier oil and add to a warm morning bath.

Add two drops Carrot Seed and two drops Lavender to 10ml carrier oil to massage into affected areas for relief of muscle aches, menstrual pain, joint pain and arthritis.

It seems to be very helpful with respiratory problems such as flu, bronchitis and colds as it appears to strengthen the mucous membranes of the nose, throat and lungs. Use in a vaporiser to help ease respiration.
