Ever since olive oil was discovered about 5,000 years ago, it has been acknowledged as having very high nutritive value. There was a time, when only people living in the Mediterranean regions were acquainted with the excellent properties of this oil. However, things have changed of late, and today, olive oil is produced commercially.


Olive oil comes in various grades with various degrees of processing. The less it is processed, the more is its value.

Benefits of olive oil for skin care. Olive oil helps give you a smooth and glowing complexion by rejuvenating the skin and hydrating it. It keeps the skin looking young by taking care of collagen and maintaining its elasticity. The oil can also heal dry skin, and is also often used as a tonic for brittle hair or nails. Olive oil, when used to massage the scalp, can rejuvenate the follicles and give a shine to the hair.

Olive oil for skin. Olive oil is a very effective beauty treatment. Adding a little bit of olive oil to your bath can make you feel luxuriant. The olive oil hydrates your body and keeps your skin soft and supple. Add to this a few drops of lavender essential oil and get ready for a treat. This bath is very rejuvenating and also helps you relax. If some parts of your skin are extremely dry and rough, simply take a few drops of the oil and massage onto the dry skin. You may even combine olive oil with sugar and make a scrub to be used on dry and flaky skin. Olive oil can also be combined with almond oil for skin beauty products that prevent wrinkles.

Olive oil for face. Since olive oil has excellent hydrating and moisturizing qualities, it can be used to create a facial mask that makes the skin feel soft and supple. Mix together the yolk of an egg, honey, and some olive oil. Beat all these together till it becomes a well-blended mixture. Now apply this on the face, and leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes before rinsing off with warm water.

Olive oil for hair. There are two ways of using olive oil for the hair. The most popular one is to heat the oil a little, and then apply it generously all over the scalp before sleeping in. Leave it overnight and wash in the morning. Another way is to simply add olive oil to your conditioner. Every time you condition your hair, the olive oil will soothe your scalp and moisturize it.
