Olive oil - the real liquid gold!

Olive oil - the real liquid gold!

There’s a reason why the Spanish, Greeks and Italians are some of the healthiest and happiest people in the world…OLIVE OIL!

 

These three countries produce the majority of the world’s Olive Oil – they also consume the majority of it too! Now Australia is getting in on the act too and discovering the secret of this true liquid gold, known for its amazing benefits for the skin, hair and general health and wellbeing. Forget the amber nectar, olive oil is the real liquid gold!

 

Olive oil is one of the world’s oldest and most important commodities. It’s incredibly versatile and very rich in vitamin E and K and monosaturated fat, and is believed to be the reason why people from the Mediterranean countries live to such a ripe old age and have a lower rate of heart disease than the rest of the world.

 

In fact some scientific evidence suggests that eating about 2 tablespoons of olive oil daily may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.

 

That may or may not be conclusive, but olive oil has been an integral part of Mediterranean and North African life for millennia, used for cooking, skincare, hair care, soap making, massage, healing and lubrication of everything from agricultural equipment to door hinges. It’s even used as fuel!

 

The Egyptians used Olive Oil as a cleanser, moisturiser, antibacterial agent and treatment for skin diseases; the ancient Greeks swore by it to prevent sports injuries, relieve muscle fatigue, and eliminate lactic acid build-up; and in Japan today, people believe a daily dose of this amazing oil both ingested and on the skin, has amazing benefits.

 

Ere Perez, an expert in natural therapies who personally creates and formulates all her makeup products is a firm believer in Olive Oil as a staple beauty ingredient.

 

“Olive oil is one of nature’s really rich, nourishing and beautiful ingredients that’s great for all sorts of beauty uses, as well as for food”, says Ere.

 

“It’s rich in Vitamin E and antioxidants, so aside from making it the key ingredient in our Rich Olive Oil Lipsticks, I use it as a weekly hair conditioning treatment, moisturiser for dry skin, as a shaving oil for my legs and even as eye makeup remover! Lately too I’ve been using it to massage my baby’s tummy. It’s really gentle and helps with colic”.

Aceite de Oliva, El aceite de la Salud y Belleza Natural

Existe una razón por la cual los españoles, griegos e italianos son las personas más sanas y felices del mundo y esa razón es el aceite de oliva.

 

Estos tres países son los mayores productores de aceite de oliva en el mundo y también los que más lo consumen. Australia se está sumando a estos países y ha descubierto el secreto de este oro líquido conocido por sus asombrosos beneficios que brinda a la piel, cabello y salud en general.

 

El aceite de oliva es realmente oro líquido. El aceite de oliva es uno de los productos más antiguos e importantes del mundo. Es increíblemente versátil y muy rico en vitaminas E y K y grasas monoinsaturadas, y se cree que es la razón por la que la gente de los países del Mediterráneo vive hasta edades más avanzadas y tiene una menor tasa de enfermedad cardíaca que el resto del mundo.

 

De hecho algunas pruebas científicas sugieren que el consumo de alrededor de 2 cucharadas de aceite de oliva al día puede reducir el riesgo de enfermedad coronaria.

 

Eso puede o no ser concluyente, pero el aceite de oliva ha sido una parte integral de la vida mediterránea y del norte de África desde hace milenios, utilizado para cocinar, cuidado de la piel, cuidado del cabello, la fabricación de jabón, el masaje, la curación y la lubricación de todo, desde equipos agrícolas hasta bisagras de las puertas. ¡Incluso se utiliza como combustible!

 

Los egipcios utilizaban el aceite de oliva como limpiador, humectante, agente antibacteriano y como tratamiento de enfermedades de la piel; los antiguos griegos lo usaban para evitar lesiones deportivas, aliviar la fatiga muscular y eliminar la acumulación de ácido láctico; y en Japón hoy en día, la gente cree que una dosis diaria de este asombroso aceite tanto ingerido como en la piel, tiene increíbles beneficios.

 

Ere Perez, experta en terapias naturales quien personalmente crea y formula todos sus productos de maquillaje cree firmemente que el aceite de oliva es un ingrediente básico de la belleza. “El aceite de oliva es un ingrediente que nos brinda la naturaleza, el cual es rico y nutritivo; es ideal para todo tipo de usos en el área de la belleza. Es rico en Vitamina E y antioxidantes, así que además de usarlo como ingrediente activo en nuestros Lipsticks con Aceite de Oliva, lo uso como tratamiento semanal para acondicionar mi cabello, como humectante para mi piel, como aceite para afeitar mis piernas e incluso como desmaquillante de ojos. Últimamente lo he usado para dar masaje en la pancita de mi bebé, es muy suave y le ayuda a aliviar el cólico”, nos dice Ere.
