Carrot Seed Essential Oil CAS 84929-61-3
Carrot Seed Oil is a yellow or amber-colored to pale orange-brown liquid of peculiar drywoody, somewhat root-like, earthy odor. The initial notes are sweet and fresh, but the tenacious undertone and dryout is very heavy, weset-earthy, fatty-oily, slightly spicy. The flavor is warm- spicy, slightly biting at high concentration, but sweet and piquant.
