Queen Anne of Great Britain is said to be the Queen Anne for which the wild carrot plant is named. According to legend, it is so called because the flower resembles lace, which Queen Anne was very adept at making. Supposedly, the red flower in the middle represents a blood droplet where she pricked herself with a needle when she was making the lace.
Carrot seed oil is harvested from the seeds of the wild carrot, Daucus carota — a delicate rare plant that is wild crafted and must be picked by hand. Steam distillation is then used to extract the oil and retain its regenerating properties. This oil has been used for centuries throughout Europe and the Middle East for treating skin disorders, as well as for beauty treatments.
