Little wonder…it’s called extra!
It loads a barrage of unique and extra uses you’ve never imagined thus far…
And as you dive deeper, you’ll wonder how you’ve lived without it!
In fact, many of the uses will stun you to the core…
Because you’d least associate them with this health marvel.
For instance, did you know that you can use olive oil as shoe polish, or even as a quick way to treat diaper rash?
I thought it would do you a great deal of good to know the many uses Olive Oil offers…
And your foremost concern should be the quality because heating or chemically refining it can damage the delicate antioxidants that give it the multiple health benefits.
So, make sure to find cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil.
Another interesting use is removing makeup. You just need to apply a little bit to a makeup remover pad or cotton ball and wipe your makeup right off your face.
Best of all, it also contains incredibly hydrating antioxidants that fight aging, such as vitamin E and polyphenols that are much more effective than the expensive conventional removers that leave your face dry.
You can also use it as massage oil...
Add 1-2 drops of your favorite essential oil, mix it well with olive oil for a boost of moisture as you rub generously over your partner’s back and neck…
And when it’s your turn, you’d love it!
Olive oil contains abundant amounts of healthy fats that can help keep your delicate facial skin moisturized.
Furthermore, EVOO has several anti-inflammatory compounds that are great for acne–prone skin, as well as anti-aging antioxidants.
Apply a dime-sized amount of olive oil to your face at night, just before you retire and see what happens to your face…
You’ll run the risk of becoming the envy in your locale…
and your friends will literally beg to know your secret…don’t let them down!
This natural wonder works great as a natural lotion for pets, especially if they have dry, cracked paws due to cold weather or walking on rough terrain or concrete.
Try rubbing a little olive oil onto your dog’s dry spots to help moisturize and soothe their skin.
Olive oil makes a wonderfully simple hair mask. The abundance of healthy monounsaturated fats deeply moisturizes your strands, while its antioxidant content also nourishes your scalp.
To make your hair mask, mildly warm about a quarter cup of olive oil in a small pan, and then apply it to your hair, from the scalp to the ends. Let the oil stay there for 15-20 minutes, and then jump into the shower and shampoo as usual.
And if you think your furniture cannot enjoy a good dose of olive oil…think again!
Add a dash to a cloth or rag, and then polish the surfaces until they glow. Go ahead and smooth it over any area that needs a little touch-up.
And the fantastic oil isn’t just about to tire…
Because it’s an incredible ingredient for DIY exfoliating scrub.
Its high antioxidant content delivers age-fighting compounds while you buff away dead skin, making it the perfect double-whammy for a soft, glowing skin.
Simply mix 3 tablespoons of extra virgin oil with 2 tablespoons of honey, and a half cup of sugar in a glass jar. Use it to scrub your body and face in the shower…and then rinse clean.
And the streak of goodness continues…
Aloe Vera isn’t the only way to treat sunburn!
The polyphenols and anti-inflammatory compounds in olive oil can also help soothe pain and discomfort due to too much time at the pool.
Treat your scorched skin with a dab of olive oil, or take your summertime skin care regimen to the next level and blend a quarter cup of olive oil with a tablespoon of fresh aloe vera gel. This will leave sunburn right in the dust.
What about zesty salad dressing?
It’s a good nutritional habit to add a little healthy fat to your greens. It helps your body absorb the vitamins in the veggies.
Whisk up a quick vinaigrette by mixing 2 tablespoons of olive oil with a teaspoon of balsamic vinegar, 2 teaspoons of honey, and a teaspoon of Difon mustard.
You can even jazz it up with a little sea salt, chopped herbs, and minced garlic, and then sprinkle all over your tantalizing salad!
And talking of moisturizing…
Simply add 2 tablespoons of olive oil to your bath, along with a few drops of your favorite essential oil and soak. Your skin will love the moisturizing effects of the healthy fats since hot water can otherwise render your skin dry.
And it gets even better…
Oleocanthal, olive oil’s anti-inflammatory compound, may also help soothe diaper rash by neutralizing irritation on your baby’s skin, while also moisturizing the area to keep it hydrated to prevent further irritation.
You don’t need to venture to the store the next time you run out of your chap-stick or lip balm!
Simply apply a small amount of olive oil to your lips and the dryness stands a zero chance, with an added benefit of a nice, glowing shine…
And you’ll step out in style, with your confidence bursting through the roof!
If you’re an artist, olive oil is amazing paint remover. It can help remove those unwanted splatters and it works best with oil-based paints to smooth and dissolve away the paint more thoroughly than water alone.
And if you run out of your shaving cream, don’t begin cursing…
Because olive oil will perfectly fill the void, helping the razor glide on your skin smoothly to prevent nicks and cuts.
More to this, the natural antioxidants in olive oil will help soothe irritations from shaving.
This last one is a real mind-blower!
No shoe polish? Don’t worry….because olive oil is a reliable companion in that endeavor!
And you can even toss your old chemical shoe-shiner and give your dirty kicks top treatment with a little olive oil.
Just like it buffs tired-looking furniture, it can give your tired shoes a nice conditioning treatment.
Simply add a teaspoon to a piece of cotton cloth and buff away.
And…there you’re…eye-popping insights into the extraordinary uses of olive oil you’ve never figured out up to this point!
Press ahead and try them out for optimum utility of EVOO!
