At La Goutte d'Or, we love camelina oil for several reasons. Camelina is an amazing plant, cultivated in Quebec. It offers an oil that is both light and creamy in the mouth. Its aromas of asparagus will give way to notes of sesame and hazelnut. Very rich in omega-3-6-9 and vitamin E, its high smoke point exceeds that of many other oils. Camelina oil is of a quality as rare as it is valuable for health. Use raw or cooked, in cooking or in cosmetics!
Not widely known, camelina oil is nevertheless very beneficial for health and beauty. Here's how to use it on your face to reduce wrinkles, maintain elasticity and prevent dryness. Take 1 to 2 drops of camelina oil in one palm of your hand and rub together with your other hand to warm it. Apply to your cheeks, chin and forehead and wait a bit to let the skin absorb the oil. Gently massage the face in circular motions for a few minutes. Do this on clean skin about 15 minutes before applying your makeup or as night care so that the oil works overnight.
La Goutte d'Or camelina oil is available in several bulk grocery stores. Ask your grocer!
