ABSTRACT:
Carrot seed oil and carrot seed essential oil are distinctively different from one another. Carrot seed oil is pressed from wild carrot seeds, while carrot seed essential oil is steam-distilled and may come from either the seeds or the carrot itself. It has a unique aroma, but carrot seed oil may be found in many formulas dealing with skin conditions ranging from revitalizing and toning to eczema and can also be directly on the skin as another way to take advantage of its many benefits e. g. analgesic, androgenic, anti-Alzheimer, anorexic, anti-arcane, anti-aging anti-asthmatic activity. The present study has been taken up to establish the physical and phytochemical properties of carrot (Daucus carota L.) seeds and their oil which was extracted in the laboratory with the help of Soxhlet apparatus. The seeds were evaluated for successive extractive values, moisture content, crude protein, crude fiber, total ash, acid-insoluble ash, total carbohydrate, essential oil, mineral contents, and weight of 1000 seeds. Also, relative density, refractive index, free fatty acids, peroxide value, iodine value, saponification number, and unsaponifiable matter were determined in the seed oil. Other parameters studied, arefluorescence behaviour, qualitative and quantitative analysis of inorganic and phytoconstituents etc. Besides, thin layer chromatography of different solvent extracts of seeds and their oil was also reported in the present study. The fatty acids identified by gas chromatography were oleic (5.21%), linoleic (11.5%), palmitic (13.50%), and stearic (3.50%) acids. The yield of essential and crude oil from carrot seeds was established as 0.83% and 6.50% respectively.
