How to make carrot oil at home



Carrot contains an anti-aging nutrient with antioxidant capabilities, beta-carotene, to slow down the ageing of cells in the body. One way to get that into your body is by using carrot oil.

This essential oil is very easy to make at home and it is extremely beneficial for the hair and skin.

Below are simple step to make your carrot oil at home.

  1. Veggie peeler
  2. Hand grater or food processor
  3. Crockpot
  4. Fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth
  5. Jar
  • Carrots
  • Olive, coconut, sunflower, or sesame oil, to cover

Step 1: Wash and peel the skin off the carrots. Grate carrots with the use of a hand grater or food processor.

Step 2: Place the grated carrots in a crock pot and pour the oil of your choice to cover.

Step 3: On your crock pot’s lowest setting, maintain a warm temperature, infusing the oil for a full 24-72 hours.

Note: Use the “warm” temperature setting on your crock pot. Try not to allow the temperature of the oil to rise above 100-105 degrees Fahrenheit. You will notice the oil becoming orange in colour.

Step 4: Once the infusion process is complete, pour the carrots and oil mixture through a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth and strain.

Step 5: Label and store the oil in a glass jar in the refrigerator until ready for use.
