Olive fruit oil, commonly known as olive oil, is derived from the fruits of the Olea europaea tree, which originates from the Mediterranean region. Its history extends back thousands of years, with civilizations like the ancient Greeks and Egyptians valuing it for both its culinary and medicinal virtues. Historically, it has been a symbol of peace, wisdom, and prosperity. Holistically, olive oil is associated with nourishment and healing, often used in ancient rituals and as a base for infusions with other medicinal herbs. The oil is packed with antioxidants, particularly Vitamin E, and essential fatty acids, making it an excellent nourishing and protective agent. For the skin, olive fruit oil offers deep moisturization without clogging pores. Its anti-inflammatory properties help reduce redness and inflammation, making it beneficial for conditions like eczema and psoriasis. The oil also provides a barrier, locking in moisture and protecting the skin from external irritants. Its antioxidant-rich nature aids in combating free radical damage, which can lead to premature aging. Moreover, when applied to the hair, it imparts shine and softness. In modern skincare, olive fruit oil is a treasured ingredient for its versatility, hydrating capabilities, and the gentle care it offers to various skin types.
