Camellia Oil

by Niwaki

Oil from the seeds of Camellia oleifera (same family as Camellia and tea) is the traditional Japanese choice for protecting tools from rust: use it when cleaning, and as a regular protective coating. Leaves a lovely deep, non-oily finish, and it’s odourless and tasteless (handy for kitchen knives, but don’t try drinking it.)

Camellia oil is a great way to add longevity to your carbon gardening tools. After use wipe dry your snips and add a few drops of the oil rubbing it into the steel. This will help combat rust and deterioration and keep your tools looking and working well for years to come.
