Although there are not many large studies on the effectiveness of olive oil for home remedies, it has been used for ages as a handy remedy for several ailments. Olive oil is rich in monounsaturated fats, fatty acids, and antioxidants, and has no side effects. A healthy amount of good quality olive oil can satisfy your hunger instincts and keep you feeling full for longer. It also has healing and cleansing properties that can help ease the pain of a burn, a sunburn, or a cut, and can be used several times a day. Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) is a favourite healthy condiment that is also known for its anti-aging and anti-wrinkle properties.


Psoriasis and skin cancer are two of the most serious ailments that can affect your skin health. Fortunately, olive oil contains vitamin E, which is known to reduce the symptoms of psoriatic and eczema and can help prevent skin cancer. You can use olive oil in the form of ghee (a form of butter used in Indian cooking) or coconut oil to make a hand cream for your skin. Mix 1 tbsp of EVOO with 1/4 tsp vitamin E oil and 10 drops of neroli essential oil to reduce inflammation and acne on the skin. Add a few drops of lemon essential oil, which has antibacterial properties, to the mixture.


Add two teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil and three drops of cedarwood essential oil for its antibacterial powers. Add 1/2 cup of chamomile tea, which also has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial powers, to a small plastic container. Apply the mixture to the affected area, several times a day until the burn heals. This treatment works best if you apply a warm compress, such as a mix of water and an equal amount of extra-virgin olive oil, and beat the emulsion with a beater until the burned area blisters. Then, you can apply the olive oil to the burn.


This method can also be used to treat dandruff. Add two tablespoons of warm olive oil in a pan, add two cloves of garlic and let it simmer for 20 minutes. Wash your hair with mild shampoo, then rinse it off with warm water. A teaspoon of lemon juice mixed with olive oil is an effective way to treat constipation and scalp irritation. Make sure to use extra virgin, cold-pressed olive oil.


You can also apply it to your skin to reduce the risk of chronic diseases, such as obesity, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, Alzheimers, and cancer. Apply it to the affected areas of your skin. Olive oil contains powerful antioxidants and vitamins A, E, and K. Thanks to its beneficial fatty acids, olive oil can reduce inflammation in the body, which can help with arthritis and other inflammatory conditions. It also contains modest amounts of omega-3s, which are important for skin health.
