Lesser Known Uses of Olive Oil

by L&P Global Wine & Olive Oil Exporter
You’ve probably heard by now that olive oil is extremely versatile, but do you know the extent of its uses? Any industrial olive oil supplier can tell you that olive oil can be used beyond cooking or baking. 

However, be wary of completely substituting products for olive oil, especially when it comes in contact with your skin. You can use a base to mix olive oil in, though, depending on what you are to use it for.

Olive Oil

Here are some alternative uses of olive oil.


Lice Remedy

They say the best way to get rid of lice is not through any anti-lice shampoo brand, but rather by manually combing through the hair. One of the best methods of removing lice is to apply olive oil before combing through the hair.

Olive oil makes your hair smoother, making it easier to comb through the hair. Olive oil also temporarily freezes the lice and nits - a trick that you’ll find will come in handy as you remove them. 

Makeup Remover

Most makeup removers contain oil or are oil-based, which is helpful for removing oily makeup. This is because compounds with similar chemical structures can dissolve each other easily. The same can be said of olive oil for removing oily makeup.

But be wary of using purely olive oil as a makeup remover, as olive oil alone can strip your face of any natural oils and leave your skin dry.

Ear Infection

Olive oil has antibacterial properties, though it remains to be seen whether these properties can reduce pain caused by an infection in the ear. You can opt to use a few drops, but be sure to guide the oil on entering the ear canal as carefully as possible.

It helps to get another person to assist, as you may need to lie down on your side. Two or three drops of olive oil have to be carefully placed in the outer part of the ear. Let 10 minutes pass before getting up.

Lubricant

This is more in tune for people in bed. Lube is used during intercourse to prevent pain, and even increase pleasure. Luckily for couples, olive oil is an all-natural lubricant.

However, be warned that olive oil is not an appropriate lubricant if you’re using a latex condom as it can cause the condom to break.

Olive oil stretches the boundaries of versatility by being used in many aspects. If you do plan to stock up on olive oil, you can contact a reliable industrial olive oil supplier for a supply today.
