It doesn't mean that she doesn't like carots. Anointing is just something that hedgehogs do when they smell/taste something new or something they like. Mine always does it with his food and with his favourite treats. My last hedgehog always did it with his carrots and ended up all orange. It is completely normal and you shouldn't change anything because it results in annointing (except maybe not give foods that make her annoint right after she's had a bath).
