As an oil and a tea, the Japanese camellia boasts a long list of health benefits. Enter our contest for a chance to win both!
The natural benefits of the Japanese camellia flower (tsubaki) are extensive and impressive: it’s a powerful antioxidant, a rich source of Omega-9, squalene and multiple vitamins and minerals – and it’s also known for its antimicrobial properties.
What does this all mean? In short, it works wonders on your body and your skin!
As an oil, camellia is an outstanding emollient and moisturizer with anti-aging benefits.
It’s rumoured to be the one of the secrets to geisha’s long-lasting beauty. And as a tea, camellia is known to help boost the immune system and vascular function.
For this month’s contest, we’re giving away camellia oil and tea from Hoshino Resorts KAI Ito. This famous onsen resort is situated on the Izu peninsula, where the vivid red colour of tsubaki is a common sight.
During your stay, you can even make your own camellia oil!
Try to win camelia tea and oil!
