I have a friend that said she used carrotseed as a sunscreen, I was wondering if this is an okay oil to use on young children for that purpose?


I'd love to apply but am blocked out. Love their oils. received a smaple froma friend when I came home from hospital last year. Settled me down with just a drop in my water. So miss not having it any longer.
