Curly Girl Fla and All people who use camellia oil: camellia oil help

Hi,
Curly Girl fla and ALL camellia oil users. I have a few questions about camellia oil

1. I heard that it's an outstanding that is easily absorbed is it true that you can't overdo it?

What is the texture, light, heavy, thick...?

What is the scent?

2. I saw the one form Anita Grant, the camellia kissi(japan). It looks very superior to camellia sinensis(japan or China), what do you think?

3. I want to use 2 tablespoons in my new hair butter with cupuacu unrefined, murumuru butter, this hair butter to be light and not greasy and creamy since I have a fine 4a that is dense. Do you think it's foolish since it's quite an expensive oil?

4. What are your other use for his oil body, face, hair, In you homemade butters, hair oil....?

5. How do you like it in general?

6. where do you get yours?

7. I want to try the one from Anita Grant (will use for hair face, and body) she has:
a) sample size
b)3 oz
c) 6 oz

Because of the price of the oil (40ish to 50ish in USD) and the shipping fee I was thinking about buying the 6 oz. I don't want to get a small size then like this oil a lot t and regret not getting a bigger size, since lots of people regretted purchasing samples sizes.

That's why I need to know if you really like it so that I don't get so much for nothing.

so, to came back to the question:
What size would you buy if you use it for all your body?
N.B.: Before answering this question , please consider if for this oil:less is more or more is less ,will use for all body, the "regretting" situation, shelf life, etc.

Thank you for your help.
I just started using camellia about a month ago, but I'll give you my first impressions:

1. I heard that it's an outstanding that is easily absorbed is it true that you can't overdo it?
So far I have found this to be true, although I am paranoid about using too much since it is more costly than most oils.

What is the texture, light, heavy, thick...?
light

What is the scent?
Unscented

2. I saw the one form Anita Grant, the camellia kissi(japan). It looks very superior to camellia sinensis(japan or China), what do you think?
I bought mine from From Nature With Love. I can't justify the overseas shipping.

3. I want to use 2 tablespoons in my new hair butter with cupuacu unrefined, murumuru butter, this hair butter to be light and not greasy and creamy since I have a fine 4a that is dense. Do you think it's foolish since it's quite an expensive oil?
I made a hair butter with camellia in it this week, and so far I love it. The camellia definitely gives it a lighter texture and reduces the grease factor.

4. What are your other use for his oil body, face, hair, In you homemade butters, hair oil....?
I've only used it on my hair. I usual use it on a finished hairstyle for smoothness and shine.

5. How do you like it in general?
A lot!

6. where do you get yours?

Personally I would buy a cheaper version from a US supplier to be sure that I liked it before I spent that much.

I like it for my face even better than on my hair! And it's nice on hair. I use it as my "moisturizer." I do OCM and put a drop or two on my palm and rub it on my face.

I just bought a quart of the Japanese, which is supposed to be the better one--incorrigible pj that I am. If anyone wants to try a one oz sample, pm me and we can work something out.

I originally started using the Chinese Camellia from FNWL for my face, and I loved it. Not greasy, absorbs quickly, no fragrance, great for oily/combo skin. Then I purchased the Japonica from Natural Japanese Beauty, and it is even better IMO. I bought 2 to make shipping from Japan worthwhile. It comes in a nice pump bottle, and seems even lighter, and is definitely a better choice for my hair. It is not the cheapest oil , but lasts a long time. They also offer a scented version that is supposed to be very nice, but I have not tried it. I only use a few drops sometimes as a leave-in on wet hair, but, more often I use this and other oils as a finisher/serum on dry hair for shine, frizzies, etc. Since I like the Japonica better on face and hair, I have been using the other one as part of my OCM cleanser and in my body oil mixture. It's good stuff . I did hear that other Japanese camellia besides the Japonica are very good. I don't think you can go wrong with any type quite honestly. HTH!

ETA: I can't believe you got a quart of this, KM! You are the bulk and sample queen !!!
