Some Benefits Of Olive Oil

in Olive-oil
Olive oil is one of if not the most commonly used oils that we know. There is probably not a person in the world who has not used this nutritious product in some way shape or form. Olive oil is best known as cooking oil but there are many more benefits to using it on a regular basis.

The manufacturing and exporting of olive oil is a very big industry and is the biggest source of revenue for many of the countries which export it. There are so many uses and applications for this product that I cant see how it will ever cease to be a major export. Some of the many uses of this product are for cooking, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, soaps, and lamp oil. Olive oil is more popular in Meditteranean countries and has been for thousands of years. Its has become popular in western countries because it is seen as such a good nutritious, natural alternative to many other products.

Olive oil is valuable as cooking oil because it is low in saturated fats and very flavorful. As a matter of fact I use it extensively in preparing many of the dishes that I like to cook. I prefer the unrefined extra virgin oil for cooking because it has not had many of its natural ingredients removed. You can also use this wonderful product on salads and various other foods. Olive oil is good for you and is recommended for internal use for many medicinal purposes. You simply cant go wrong with this product.

Olive oil is used in many cosmetic products because it is an excellent skin care product. Olive oil is not heavy so it doesnt block the pores. It nourishes the skin so it can be used right out of the bottle. Olive oil fights many diseases which attack the skin and it has anti bacterial benefits when you apply it immediately after showering. I recommend the use of pure olive oil alone for skin care or if you prefer you can mix it with other natural oils for external skin use. Some good products to mix it with include almond oil, vitamin E oil, and aloe vera oil.

Olive oil is also used in combination with many pharmaceutical products for added benefits. It can be used as a carrier which holds other products in suspension, or it can be used in order to combine its healing effects with other products.

Olive oil is used in soaps as well. It is good because of its moisturizing effects and enhances the soaps which it is combined with.

Olive oil has been used as a lamp oil since times of old. It is useful as a lamp oil because it burns very evenly when it is lit and is very dependable.

When you choose olive oil choose pure oil. The different grades of olive oil are used depending on the purpose of use. I like to mix olive oil with other essential oils depending on the purpose that I have in mind. I do this when I use it externally.

Virgin oil is oil in which no chemicals were used in processing it. I like the virgin and extra virgin olive oil as a cooking oil, but preferably I use the extra virgin oil. The extra virgin olive oil has less than 0.89% acidity. It is good in salads and dips also because the low acid content gives it a superior taste.

Pure olive oil is a blend of virgin and refined olive oil and is good for most uses. It has little taste so it is a good oil to use for cooking of frying foods. You would do well to keep this excellent natural product on hand in your own household. Fragrance Oil Express
