THE ANCIENT WONDERS OF OLIVE OIL
Did you know wild olive trees have been around for over 6,000 years?
The Egyptians were among the first to appreciate the health benefits of olive oil. They used it in all aspects of their lives… in cooking, as fuel to light fires, as a lubricant to help move heavy stones and grease the wheels of their chariots… not to mention as a cosmetic to enhance the beauty of their skin and hair!
And now we’re finally catching on to the wide benefits of incorporating this enriching oil into our beauty routines.
The beauty of it
Not just a hypoallergenic way to moisturize skin, olive oil also contains Omega-6 and antioxidant vitamin E, which assist in repair and renewal.
Hidden hair benefits
Women have been using olive oil to treat and nourish their hair as far back as Roman times.
This is because it’s able to penetrate throughout all parts of the hair and scalp. Applied as a leave-in product, it gives damaged hair back its shine, softness, strength and suppleness.
