Olive Oil is considered healthy by most people. This is due to its:
- Monounsaturated Fats - High Concentration
- Anti-inflammatory agents
- Omega-3 fatty acids
- It is rich in Vitamins, making it an excellent natural beauty treatment.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil is also an affordable beauty ingredient that can be used in these ways:
Olive Oil is more concentrated than a lotion, and doesn't absorb as quickly. However, Extra Virgin Olive Oil penetrates deeper to replenish cells and soften tissue. Extra Virgin Olive Oil also contains avocado-like healthy fats, which can plump the lips and moisturize the skin.
Apply daily to dry areas such as the feet and elbows after showering. Extra Virgin Olive Oil can also help reduce the appearance of acne scars. You can easily add fragrance to your home with just a few drops Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Olive Oil can be used to shave facial hair and other body hair. It is inexpensive, efficient, and effective. Extra Virgin Olive Oil makes the shave a bit more difficult and has less glide. However, cleanup is simple and the skin is soft and dewy. After washing, add an additional teaspoon. We guarantee you won't regret this!
Use olive oil on your skin, then scrub with coarse salt or sugar. Rinse. Mix one part Extra Virgin Olive Oil with one part sea salt and a few drops of essential oil (lavender is a great option). Make an old-world paste by mixing the following:
- It smells great
- Feels good
- It costs only pennies per application
Ear wax softener
To remove the wax from your ears, you can use Olive Oil either alone or in combination with water irrigation. Three drops of Olive Oil should be applied to the affected ear every day for three to four weeks, according to AAFP. The AAFP recommends that you apply room-temperature drops to the affected ear with an eyedropper in the evening before going to bed. This allows the oil to penetrate deeper into the wax.
Hair & Scalp Masque
You can help dry hair and scalp with Extra Virgin Olive Oils. Apply a generous amount of the heated oil to your scalp and hair. Wrap hair in a towel or place it under a dryer for about 10-15 minutes. Use a mild shampoo to wash your hair.
Softener for the cuticles
To moisturize and prevent snags on the cuticles, rub a little Extra Virgin Olive Oil onto them. Or mix oil with water to make a Do It Yourself manicure.
To remove any makeup or impurities, a few drops of Extra Virgin Olive Oil can be used on a cotton pad or ball. Use circular motions to wipe your face. You can also use the cotton pad to protect your eyes for 10 seconds. Then, gently wipe the face.
