Camellia Oil Refined - Certified Organic*

Camellia Oil, originating in China, is mostly found in forests and stream banks and is cultivated extensively throughout the country. Known as one of the best kept secrets in the cosmetic industry, it is a light oil that can be easily absorbed into the skin without leaving a greasy feeling.

Camellia Oil, like green tea, is an excellent antioxidant, protecting the skin from free radical damage, as well as promoting skin elasticity, making it an exceptional oil for anti-ageing. It is also a great emulsifying agent, meaning it quickly emulsifies other fats, making it a good additive to cosmetic products – both commercial and home-made.

Used by the women of China for centuries in their beauty applications, it is used as an emollient for dry skin due to its exceptionally high oleic acid (omega 9) content, improving the appearance of rough, dry and damaged skin, and can be soothing to irritated skin. It also promotes the healing of scars, and reduction of age spots and wrinkles. Camellia Oil is also commonly used to condition hair, being used as a traditional hair treatment dating back to ancient times in China.

In addition, Camellia Oil is also known for its anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, and analgesic properties. It can be used directly on the face and body or used in your cosmetic or massage blend.

    I am very pleased to have purchased this oil. It absorbs into the skin excellently. Lovely to use on the face, and definitely hydrates. It is also very good to carry healing essential oils anywhere on the skin, and because it absorbs to easily one can quickly dress and get underway with the day without it affecting clothes. It is a five star oil, 4 stars for the plastic bottle and not glass. But a fabulous oil.

    Beautiful oil

    I absolutely love this camellia oil. I put it around my eyes every night instead of my usual moisturizer and it just feels so luxuriantly silky. The only reason I give it four stars instead of five is that I was disappointed it comes in a plastic bottle rather than glass. Would prefer not to have plastics leaching into this beautiful organic oil.

    Camellia oil

    This is a beautiful oil. I am sensitive to salicylates so most oils are not suitable for me. Camellia oil is perfect because it doesn’t contain salicylic acid

    Camellia oil, my favourite

    Posted by Unknown on 31st Oct 2018

    I love this product. I use it as a carrier oil, face cream, body cream, etc. It absorbs very well and leaves my skin feeling lovely. Does not have an oily feel after application, but absorbs quickly.

    Lovely & Light

    Posted by Michelle on 2nd Jul 2018

    I get really dry skin on my legs but my skin reacts to lotions (even the good ones). I normally use coconut oil but it's not great in winter (solidifies in the cold) so I thought I would try this. It's absolutely beautiful and my skin loves it. I will also be experimenting with it in my soaps. Packaging also fantastic and my items were sent and arrived promptly. Very happy with all of my products from AWO and can recommend 100%.

    It has a faint smell which is perfect for adding essential oils. Also my skin drank it up and feels fuller. So I d say it s not for a massage but perfect for nourishing skin and skincare
