Uses - Camelina is a relatively dry oil, so is a good addition to blends for normal to oily skin. It's anti-oxidant and anti-ageing properties can be harnessed for drier skins when mixed with richer oils, such as macadamia or rosehip. It helps to restore the skin's elasticity and is packed with anti-oxidants and EFA's including high levels of omega 3. It can help combat skin dehydration and is thought to deepen the appearance of a tan.
