Just as Carrot Seed clears and assists the skin, which is our largest organ, Carrot Seed clears and assists on the energetic level. It can help clear away mental stress and works on the 2nd 3rd , 4th, and 6th chakras. 
 
Carrot Seed helps move energetic blocks, allowing for a free flow of energy and strengthening inner vision. When our third eye or persepective is clear, there is a clarity that shines forth through the eyes and skin as well. When the emotional body is soothed, the integumentary system, or skin is soothed. This is such a good example of how we are connected, mind, body and spirit. Our inner lives are reflected through the outer layers of our skin.

Botany
Daucus carota is a biennial plant that grows a rosette of leaves in the spring and summer. The stems grow between 1-4ft. There is an umble of small white flowers in a lacy looking flat-topped cluster; 3-4 in. wide with a deep purple floret in the center. The distinctive umbels and floral nectaries attract pollinating insects. 
 
Traditional Folklore
Many medicinal claims for wild carrot include supporting elimination, stimulating the flow of urine, and the removal of wastes by the kidneys. The seeds help clear out the kidneys, and are useful in cases of gout. As other plants in the carrot family, the seeds are carminative. The name "carrot" is Celtic, meaning "red of color", and Daucus from the Greek "dais" to burn, signifying its pungent and stimulating qualities. An Old English superstition suggests that the small purple flower in the center of the Wild Carrot was a cure for epilepsy.
