I have been using this oil for a long time, yet only recently discovered some more of the beautiful richness Olive Oil possess!
Olive Oil as a Moisturizer
I especially find the moisturizing character of olive oil intriguing. The properties of this oil do not clog your pores as many moisturizers you find on store shelves may. Penetrating deep into the layers of your skin, the oil provides protection from free radicals while cleansing the skin cells. The combination of vitamin A and vitamin E in olive oil repairs cells from harmful environmental factors. [paraphrased from doctorshealthpress.com ]
There are many wonderful facts you can read about olive oil. The above mentioned is so meaningful to me as it reminds me of the amazing power of the Word of God.
It is as I allow my heart to ponder on the Words He speaks, that I find it penetrating deep into the layers of my soul, providing protection from harmful, roaming thought patterns renewing my mind thus transforming my life! The Word of God exposes the dark areas of my life while together with the Holy Spirit guides my everyday choices for healthy living.
There’s much to learn from this Beautiful Oil! But as I conclude for now I would like to mention just one more benefit and that is that the properties found in antioxidants and vitamin E, fights infections and hormone imbalances, hydrates skin cells, and promotes healing! How awesome is that!
