Cosme-Phytami™ Olive Leaf

Add to favourites
Fossilised leaves of the oleaster tree (Olea sylvestris), a wild ancestor of the olive tree, have been discovered in Tuscany and date back several million years. According to recent research, this species was domesticated 5,000 to 7,000 years ago in several regions of the Mediterranean basin. Under the Roman Empire, the olive tree was planted all around the Mediterranean, which contributed to the Empire's monopoly on the oil trade and ensured its power in the world. Following their conquest of South America, the Spaniards planted olive trees as far away as present-day California. In ancient times, olive leaves were used to disinfect superficial wounds. They were known to have antiseptic properties and the ability to fight all kinds of infections. In the 19th century, the leaves were used to treat malaria. Herbalists recommended olive leaves to improve blood circulation. Olive oil was used not only for cooking, but also for lighting (oil lamps), for making soaps and for waterproofing textile fibres. Olive trees represent a symbol of immortality due to their extraordinary longevity. They were commonly known as a symbol of peace, goodness, and purity since ancient times. Olive was first used as a cosmetic ingredient in ancient Egypt.
