RICH IN ANTI-OXIDANT
With its impressive levels of Vitamin E (a cancer-fighting antioxidant), Camelina oil is much more stable and versatile than other vegetable oils. Not only is it great as a salad dressing and finishing oil, but its high smoke point (475° F) also makes it ideal for cooking, baking, and light sauteing.
Camelina oil can be used as a massage oil for the skin. Because it has a nice mild aroma, it feels good during the massage. It provides ample amount of Vitamin E and omega fatty acids directly to the skin. These moisturize the skin and prevent it from free radical damage.

Regular intake of omega- reduces overall inflammation. One can experience a reduction in pain, inflammation and swelling over the joint. It also boosts mobility in the joint. Camelina oil can be used as carrier oil. It goes well with rosemary essential oil and this combination can be massaged on the inflamed joint.
RICH SOURCE OF VITAMIN E
Camelina oil is also rich in alpha and gamma tocopherol, two forms of vitamin E. These compounds protect the oil from oxidation and rancidity. This is why the oil can be stored up to 18 months. The antioxidant effects of vitamin E are also important for our health. Vitamin E helps to prevent free radical damage, which in turn can prevent heart disease, arthritis and cancer. Vitamin E has also been linked to enhanced immune function, prevention of eye problems and easing menstrual symptoms.
