Olive oil has been used in mediterranean countries since time immemorial. People who use olive oil routinely suffer lower rates of high blood pressure and heart disease than those who don’t. Having said that olive oil has many uses aside from keeping your arteries unclogged.

 

For centuries women have used olive oil to cleanse and soften their skin. The cosmetic uses for olive oil run into dozens from keeping your skin soft to using it to removing make up…that would be an article all on its own.

 

Here are ten uses for olive oil that are neither food or beauty tips.

  1. Waterproofing leather: From work boots to tool pouches olive oil keeps leather supple and helps prevent damage. It has excellent waterproofing qualities which helps prolong the life of leather items.
  2. Lubricant: From personal uses to unsticking zippers and freeing seized up tools, olive oil is an excellent non-toxic lubricant.
  3. Oil Lamps: olive oil burns clean with no spitting and gives out a good light.
  4. Gets paint off skin: Rub olive oil into your hands for a few minutes and the paint will loosen, coming off with the oil.
  5. Gets tar off skin: Mix with a little sugar and rub into the tar or other sticky stuff. It comes away easily.
  6. Kill Head lice: The oil smothers live lice killing them and makes the eggs, known as nits easy to remove with a fine toothed comb.Leave on for an hour before washing out…several times in my experience.
  7. Shaving cream substitute: Smooth over then shave off. The razor glides easily which prevents nicks.
  8. Keep manual tools rust free: Coating the moving nits of manual tools before storage keeps them rust free and prevents them seizing up.
  9. Ear Ache: A small plug of cotton wool dampened with olive oil relieves the pain of an earache.
  10. Reduce the pain of a minor burn: By coating in a thin layer of olive oil preferably from a spray.

Take care
