Botanical name: Olea europaea

Part of plant used: Fruit, leaves

Why it’s wonderful: Olive oil is rich in vitamin E, oleic acid and other essential fatty acids. These essential fatty acids and vitamins make olive oil a rejuvenating ingredient for the skin as it helps to improve your skins suppleness and elasticity and helps to reduce dryness. Olive Oil is a mild oil making it a good choice for all skin types. Because olive oil slowly absorbs into the skin and can feel heavy to some people, it can be combined with another oil of your choice to minimize this feeling. Olive oil is also popular as part of the oil cleansing method, a routine which uses oils to cleanse and moisturize instead of soap or detergents.

Actions/Purpose: Moisturizer, skin softener and conditioner

Color: Golden or green
