Wildflowers: Daucus Carota Subsp. Halophilus – Wild Carrot

A gentle stroll along the clifftop road towards Amoreira beach in the Western Algarve gave me yet more photo opportunities to record several species of wildflowers. This week I have chosen to showcase the wild carrot.

Apparently, it is also used as an essential oil for its anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties. Natural medicine geeks check out this article. https://www.hindawi.com/journals/ecam/2016/9045196/

Do you enjoy taking photographs of wildflowers?

Every Wednesday I will be sharing a photograph of wildflowers growing in my local area. Who will join me?

Where does the Daucus Carota Subsp. Halophilus grow?

As you can see from the map below the Daucus Carota Subsp. Halophilus only grows in limited areas.

    1. No, I’ve thought about it, especially lavender oil to help me sleep. I bought several, including one which is supposed to deter mosquitoes, but I have never used them. Your comment reminds me I need to dig them out and use them.
