  • Grater
  • Pan
  • Fine mesh strainer
  • 8 oz squeeze cap bottle


  1. Clean the carrots and scrape outer skin then set aside to dry.
  2. Once the skin is dry, finely grate the carrots. You can use a grater like this one.
  3. Place a pan on the stove and pour in all the oils except the essential oils. Apply very low heat. You are not cooking the carrots.
  4. Add in the grated carrots and stir.
  5. Leave for 20 minutes but stir every 5 minutes.
  6. After 20 minutes, remove from heat and set aside until completely cooled down.
  7. Strain out the oil using a fine-mesh strainer like this one.
  8. Add in the essential oils. Stir and pour into the squeeze cap bottle or glass bottle. Shake and your DIY carrot oil is ready.


This carrot oil is specifically for hair growth so you can use it primarily as a scalp massage oil but feel free to seal with it or use it as a leave-in oil conditioner. 

You can also add a 1 – 2 teaspoons to your styling cream or butter. Do not use on skin. This is not a recipe for the skin. I will upload another recipe later on for the skin.
