What is the Camellia oil?

Camellia oil is a kind of vegetable oil. As the name suggests, camellia edible oil squeez  from the fruit of the camellia tree. Camellia oil is rich in nutrition, golden in color and excellent in taste. The cultivation of camellia trees has a history of 3,000 years in China, but when it comes to camellia oil, many people may feel unfamiliar, so let me introduce it to you today—-How to squeeze the camellia oil.

The growth of camellia trees has strict requirements on the environment. The rainfall and temperature must be in a suitable environment to grow healthily. No chemical fertilizers or pesticides are used during the entire growth process. Only in this way can the camellia oil extracted from the camellia berry be golden or light yellow in color, pure in quality and pure in taste.

How to squeeze the camellia oil

Camellia oil and olive oil are two major woody oil plants in the world. Camellia oil is also known as oriental olive oil. Its content is as high as 90% unsaturated fatty acids, which is far lower than this value in current edible oils. Unsaturated fatty acids are indispensable substances for the human body. However, this unsaturated fatty acid cannot  synthesiz independently in the human body and must be supplied by food. If the supply of unsaturated fatty acids is sufficient, the skin will be tender and moist, and the hair will be black and shiny. On the contrary, if the body lacks unsaturated fatty acids, the skin will become rough and the hair will fall off.

Another significant advantage of camellia oil is that it has a high smoke point. The smoke point of general cooking oil is only about 100°C. The smoke point of camellia oil is 200-215°C, and the oily fumes produced during the use of general edible oils contain a large amount of carcinogens. It can lead to lung cancer if inhaled into the lungs.

Camellia oil also has high medicinal value. Regular consumption has anti-aging and anti-aging effects, softens blood vessels, and has a good therapeutic effect on arteriosclerosis and cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. It can suppress symptoms such as hair loss, white hair and scalp itching. Pills and ointments formulated in traditional Chinese medicine are often made with camellia oil.
