Our Organic Virgin Camelina Oil is cold pressed from the seeds of the species Camelina sativa, a member of the Brassicaceae (Mustard) plant family.
Native to Europe, historical evidence indicates that Camelina Oil was pressed and used in Europe from as early as 600 BC. Camelina is an annual flowering plant that grows up to 4 feet tall. The plant is primarily grown for its nutritive seeds that feature an impressive composition of essential fatty acids.
