The ancient Japanese floral oil is fast becoming a popular skin care treatment to fight the signs of aging.
Japanese Camellia oil is a product of the Camellia japonica flower. The plant grows primarily in the Goto Islands of Nagasaki Prefecture and the Izu Islands of Tokyo Prefecture. Flowers bloom in red, pink or white colors. Camellia japonica seeds are cold-pressed to produce the clear pale yellow edible oil with a light sweet scent.

Other variations of the Camellia flower include Camellia oleifera and Camellia sinensis. These flowers are cultivated in the southern provinces of China and are primarily used for tea and cooking. The popular oolong, green, white and black teas are made from Camellia flowers. Due to the flower's association with tea, camellia oil is sometimes referred to as tea seed oil.

Camellia Oil in History
In the 18th century, Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus named the flower genus "Camellia" in honor of European missionary and botanist Georg Joseph Kamel and called the species "Japonica" to describe its Japanese origins.
For centuries, people have extracted the oil of the Camellia japonica for skin care, hair care and culinary purposes. Since the oil has a rich antioxidant and essential fatty acid content, it was good for both cooking and beauty needs.
Today people from all over the world are discovering the many benefits of camellia oil.
