- Caring for your tools
Oil from the seeds of Camellia japonica 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.)

- 100ml bottle.
- Cold pressed Camellia seeds blended with white mineral oil.
- Not for human consumption.
We are massive fans of Japanese gardening tools and we are pleased to be able to provide a range of our favourites from Niwaki.
As anyone who has been to one of Jekka's Open Days knows, it is very important to correctly maintain your tools and Jekka advises using the infamous diamond sharpener along with Camellia Oil and Crean Mate as demonstrated in Jekka's video.
