Everything of Camellia In Oshima

Oil

Camellia oil has been known since ancient times on Oshima.

Camellia oil has been used since long ago for a variety of purposes including as a food and light oil and for medicine and cosmetics. Entering the Edo period it became widely used for hair grooming. Even today camellias are a vital industry on Oshima, used as a hair oil, cooking oil, etc. It has received a lot of attention particularly recently as a natural oil, said to be good for health and beauty due to its high concentration of oleic acid. Because it contains large amounts of oleic, it is a healthy oil which can be relied on to help reduce bad cholesterol. The method for extracting the oil by pressing camellia seeds is well known. This means that the characteristics of the oil which is extracted using the traditional methods are mostly unchanged in terms of taste and composition.
