Rosemary, which is touted as a good companion plant for carrots - really isn't - It's not a bad one either. It does little for the carrot plant and vice verse. Cuttings from rosemary might, possibly , maybe , woulda coulda shoulda act as a repellent of carrot rustfly - but that is unproven.
Sage has some repellent qualities against carrot pests.
Radish can be planted with carrots , the radish will mature very quickly and loosen the soil for the carrot seeds as they germinate. The radishes will already be harvested when the carrots are still in pampers.
Amaranth aka Pig-weed also loosens the soil, making it easier for carrot roots to grow.
Parsnips a close cousin of carrots is susceptible to the same diseases and pests as carrots. It's advisable to keep the two separated.
