Olive Oil, Cold Pressed as it should be for superb skin nourishment and triglyceride treat for the skin. Use in massage or cream production.
Olive oil is a fruit oil obtained from the olive (Olea europaea; family Oleaceae), a traditional tree crop of the Mediterranean Basin. We source our Olive Oil from Italy, where the growing conditions lead to a super mineral rich oil and historically the best quality cold pressed Olives.
In addition to the internal health benefits of olive oil, topical application is quite popular with fans of natural health remedies. Extra Virgin Olive Oil is the preferred grade for moisturising the skin, especially when used in the oil cleansing method (OCM). OCM is a method of cleansing and moisturising the face with a mixture of cold pressed olive oil and another suitable carrier oil and a select blend of essential oils. Olive oil is also used by some to reduce ear wax buildup.
Olive oil can be used as an effective shaving oil to shave facial and other body hair giving results that are equivalent to expensive commercial products.
