EVOO for Health & Beauty

 

Vitality, Health, and Beauty…

 

 

Extra Virgin Olive Oil has been considered one of the greatest natural assets of the ancient world. Dubbed "Liquid Gold" by Homer, Extra Virgin Olive Oil has been used for food, medicine, beauty, and much more.

 

Anti-Aging

       Olive Oil may be one of the finest substances for delaying the aging process.  Olive Oil contains 1.6 milligrams of vitamin E per tablespoon, the vitamin that combats the free radicals that damage the body tissues and contribute to aging.

 

Hair and scalp treatment

·         Comb a few drops into your hair, or massage a few tablespoons into your scalp.

 

Remove eye makeup

·         Rub a few drops underneath your eyes, and rise with a warm, damp washcloth

 

For smooth, supple, touchable skin, use as a moisturizer

·         Apply directly to skin, or add to warm bath water.  A few drops can also be added to enhance your regular moisturizer. Ideal for those with sensitive skin.

 

Anti-inflammatory

·         Oleocanthal, a compound found in Extra Virgin Olive Oil, is a natural anti-inflammatory that has the potency and profile strikingly similar to that of ibuprofen.

 

Smooth out wrinkles

·         Olive Oil has exceptional penetrating abilities, locking in moisture and stimulating the synthesis of collagen and elastin, thus encouraging firmer and healthier skin.

 

Treat cuts, blisters and soothe painful sunburns

        Olive Oil is antiseptic and has many natural healing properties and protects the skin from the damaging effects of the sun by boosting the skin’s own defenses and recovery.

 

Pet Care

         The use of olive oil is also beneficial for your loveable pets. Adding 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil to your pets food daily is good for their heart, reduces bad cholesterol, and keeps their skin and coat glossy!

         You dog's paws can become quite dry and cracked during the winter months. To help this problem, massage a small amount of extra virgin olive oil on the bottom of the paws.
