Our Camellia Oil is truly a miracle of nature. Cold pressed from the seeds of the Camellia Oleifera plant, this golden elixir offers a wealth of skin and hair benefits with every use.
Camellia Oil is extremely rich in oleic acid (omega 9 fatty acid), plus mono-saturated essential fatty acids and phytosqualene – an incredibly precious natural component of human sebum which becomes naturally deficient with age. This makes Camellia Oil an exceptionally light yet deeply nourishing carrier oil which absorbs into the skin just as quickly as water, leaving it hydrated, supple and soft without being greasy.
Vitamins A, B, E and high amounts of antioxidants offer powerful protection against environmental damage and premature ageing; its light aroma also means that adding it to lotions, potions and recipes won’t overpower any essential oils you could wish to blend in.
When added to cold process soap, Camellia Oil contributes to its conditioning effect while adding a little extra hardness to the bar – perfect for those who prefer something a bit sturdier when washing up! Discover the power of this nature-given elixir today.
Keep Your Complexion Youthful and Glowing
Looking for a luxuriously nourishing homemade body oil for a fraction of the price? Look no further than Camellia Oil!
Camellia oil is extraordinarily light, helping it to penetrate deep into the skin and deliver its anti-inflammatory, moisturising and protective benefits quickly. Its unique blend of vitamins A, B and E plus phytosqualene and high concentrations of both omega 6 and omega 9 fatty acids mean it’s great for promoting supple, hydrated skin whilst helping protect against environmental damage.
Of course, you don’t always have to buy ready-made products – why not make your own Camellia Oil body oil blend at home? All you need is a jug, some scales and the following ingredients: Camellia Oil (100ml | 90g), Sweet Almond Oil (100ml | 90g), Vitamin E Oil (4ml | 4g) and optionally Rose Geranium Essential Oil (2ml | 2g).
Simply measure out each ingredient into the jug then blend everything together before transferring to a bottle. The best time to apply this mixture is just after showering, when your skin has been softened by the warm water – use little and often to get beautiful results!
