Commonly called gold of pleasure and false flax Camelina Oil is the gold standard for price per quality! The Camelina Sativa, or Camelina plant, grows annually up to 47 inches with branching stems. Its alternately arranged leaves on the stem are partially hairy, with seeds securely housed in seed pods. These seeds are processed to extract Camelina Oil.
Believed to be cultivated in Europe for over 3,000 years by famous Civilizations such as the Greeks and Romans, Camelina was very impactful in the personal and industrial daily lives of many as it continues to be today!

I use this in one of my soaps and it works really well.
This is a new oil for me. Never have used it in anything before but wanted to try it with what I was making for a mens' grooming product. Based on information Bulk Apothecary provided, I tried it out and also happy to see they use dark bottles for their oils to protect them from exposure to light as it could degrade the quality over time.Shipping and packaging was quick and effective respectively. I'm very impressed with Bulk Apothecary and sill shop with them often!
I use it in an anti-inflammatory spray I make with 13 other oils and menthol crystals, the omega 3 fatty acids help to make the spray transdermal, ie. rapidly absorbed by the skin. Was used by the Aristocratic Romans as a massage oil and a cooking oil. It's related to mustard so the taste needs getting used to.
Western cooking is used to neutral tasting oils and fats, unlike other cultures.
I use this oil on my face. Others have mentioned disliking the scent....I actually like it. It does smell like dirt, true, but it's a clean earthy scent. Goes on smooth and penetrates quickly
Its a good oil to help older drier skin, problem is it smells like potting soil! I finally found that a large dose of lavender E/O and Rosemary E/O blended with the "Earthyness" of the oil. It works but the odor is funky!
