Camelina Oil is one of many popular carrier oils used in massage, aromatherapy, and other body-work treatments.
Camelina oil (from Camelina sativa) is difficult to extract without using solvents because the seeds from which it is extracted are only approx. 1-2mm long and approx. 1mm wide.
Therapeutic and cosmetic uses of camelina carrier oil include applications for skin softening, hence aas an ingredient in skin-care creams and moisturisers. It also provides a protective coating over hair follicles and is therefore used in some hair-care products. It is also used in the manufacture of some solid skin-care products such as lipsticks.
Note: There are many different carrier oils used for massage and other bodywork therapies. This section includes many popular oils but it is not a complete list.
