Sometimes called Queen Anne's lace in North America, the clusters of tiny white flowers of the wild carrot found in Asia, North Africa and Europe look like lace and the red dots represent the blood where Queen Anne pricked herself with a needle. The wild carrot shares its Latin name with the commercially cultivated carrot, but it is actually its wild ancestor. To make an infusion, carrots are boiled in water as if making tea. The infusion will carry the great properties of carrots as long as their nice sweet and green scent. They can also be dried and grinded into a powder that will keep their bright orange color and rehydrate in contact with hot water. Having dried materials in a formula helps the product to be self-preserving by limiting the amount of liquid in it.
