Olive oil was used by Ancient Greeks and Romans to care for their bodies. At first its function was only that of soap, then it was used as a moisturizer, enriched with aromas obtained from herbs and flowers.
Olive oil can be used for so many reasons like; dry skin, body wash, against sun protection, wrinkles, for eczema and acne treatment, winter itch, frizzy hair or as a usual moisturizer, facial cleanser, deep hair conditioner. In addition to being a natural, hypoallergenic way to moisturize the skin, extra virgin olive oil has the advantage of providing strong antioxidants, including vitamin E, as well as vitamin K, that help repair and renew the skin that has been damaged from overexposure to sun, air pollution, andother modern-day environmental hazards – like cigarette smoke and fast food.
