Cereal crops are wind pollinated, but virtually all fruit and vegetables are pollinated by insects; nearly entirely by bees.

Ingredient Focus: Camellia Oil

Have you ever really thought about the products you use on a daily basis? We all want to know what's in the products we eat, so why not those which we put on our skin? (After all, remember that a whopping 60% of what you put on your skin is absorbed into your bloodstream!) Camellia Oil - what is it?? Latin name: Camellia Kissi Oil There are actually three different kinds of flower that Camellia Oil (or also known as Tea Seed Oil) can come from and these are the Camellia oleifera, Camellia japonica and the Camellia sinensis plants. We use Camellia...
