Moisturize with Olive Oil

olive oilDo you have dry, sensitive skin and worry every time you try to treat it with harsh chemical products? Worry no more, because there is a natural, mild, and time tested way that you can moisturize found right in your kitchen. Olive oil is a great choice when trying to battle any dry part of your body. It works for women and men alike because it does not have a strong or fragrant scent. When choosing an olive oil to use on your body, choose only the highest quality organic extra-virgin expeller-pressed variety you can find. It will have the lower acidity and higher clarity and quality than other varieties. The benefits of olive oil do not only affect the skin’s surface temporarily; the body’s cells actually incorporate the valuable fatty acids from the oil, making the skin stronger and more hydrated. Try these easy olive oil treatments the next time your body is aching for some extra TLC.



Soak your nails in a small cup of olive oil for 30 minutes for a super save for run down cuticles and dry, brittle nails.



Use olive oil as a treatment instead of commercial lip balm the next time your lips are dry and cracked.



Olive oil is very useful for dry, damaged hair. Massage a few tablespoons of olive oil into your scalp and cover with a plastic bathing cap. Let the oil set for 30 minutes or more, and then shampoo. This treatment will help repair split ends, heal dandruff, and will make your hair incredibly shiny. Mediterranean women have been using olive oil for hair care for centuries because of its amazing ability to make the hair healthy.



Apply liberally to rough, cracked areas of skin for relief. Use regularly for skin hydration.


Infant Care

Olive oil is one of the only safe choices for natural infant care. It works very well on the dry flaky skin condition on the scalp called cradle cap. It is also a safe and effective alternative to commercial baby oil.



Add a few tablespoons of olive oil to your bath for a soothing moisture bath treatment. Add a few drops of your favorite essential oil for a special treat.



Try olive oil the next time you want to give a massage to that special someone. You will not be bogged down with heavy fragrance, and you can add a few drops of essential oil to add scent to your aching muscle treatment.
