The extra virgin olive oil is a great moisturizer for the face and body. It is a natural moisturizer, and you don’t have to worry about harmful allergenic ingredients, like the ones you get in commercially made moisturizers.
At night clean your face and moisten it with warm water. Mix well one teaspoonful of hot water with two teaspoonfuls of extra virgin olive oil and apply the mixture to your face with your fingers in upward circular motion. Because there are not harmful ingredients in the mixture you can apply it around the eyes and eyelids. Leave it on till morning. You are going to love the results.
Extra virgin olive oil has the ability to lock the natural moisture in and softens the skin. Because of its antioxidants, can stimulate the synthesis of collagen and elastin and makes the skin smooth, soft and healthy.
Mix one cup of extra virgin olive il with three teaspoons of coarse sea salt and a few drops of lemon flower oil, lavender oil or mint oil. Massage your body with the mixture. Leave it on for five ten minutes and take a shower. You are going to feel rejuvenated and wonderful.
For massaging tired feet, mix one ounce of extra virgin olive oil and a few drops of essential oil, clean your feet well and get comfortable. Massage your feet or have someone do it for you. You are going to feel like you are in Heaven. If someone else does that for you, return the favor.
Massaging increases health and blood flow, improves circulation and well being. When you massage, start with extra virgin olive oil as your base and add essential oils for relaxation and stimulation of the muscles.
Again the “liquid gold” is wonderful for the body inside and out.
Relax and enjoy.
