We love Olive Oil - August 2010

Written by  
olive oilOne reason we love olive oil is because it is rich in monounsaturated fatty acids and powerful antioxidants. A diet high in olive oil is said to protect against heart disease, gallstone formation, and many forms of cancer; lower blood pressure; and ease ulcers and gastritis. Now a bumper crop of olive-lovers are bringing the benefits of the olive to skin and body care in new olive-rich salves and spa treatments. But olive oil has been used by cultures around the world for centuries, not just in the Mediterranean, due to its therapeutic value. Many civilizations use olives for curative, disinfectant, and moisturizing properties on burns, bug bites, wrinkles, stretch marks, scars, rashes, and for cosmetics, massage, and hair conditioning.
