Camellia grows as a shrub or small tree and can grow up to 8m high in the wild but can be less than 2m high when cultivated. It is an important source of edible oil (known as tea oil or camellia oil) obtained from its seeds. It is cultivated in western Japan where winters are cold and dry, and camellia oil is extensively used there. It blossoms all through the winter even under the snow from January to February. The flowers range in color from white, to pink and red and it is said to be a beautiful scene when the camellia trees are in blossom.
Camellia oil is similar in viscosity to jojoba. It penetrates quickly and can be used alone on the skin, hair and nails. Camellia oil is one of the most rapidly absorbing oils making it an excellent choice as a facial oil. The light nature of Camellia oil along with its high nutrient and non pore blocking composition make it ideal for use as a baby massage oil. Camellia blends well with Sweet Almond oil to make a wonderful massage oil.
