Olive Leaf C/S poultices have been used in natural medicine for thousands of years in the healing of all sorts of skin related issues. It has been proven that the elenoic acid which this leaf contains is highly antibacterial, but studies have also shown that this leaf also encourages circulation, thus the healing power of the olive could also be attributed to assisting the body’s own natural defense system as well as its antibacterial benefits.
Infuse Olive Leaf C/S directly into your oils, using the method of your choice (either cold infusion or hot) – then strain out the herb. You can also use this herb directly in the tub by adding it to a muslin bag (so the tub doesn’t get messy) – toss the bag into the tub and soak away. Consider mixing other skin healing herbs into your blend as well.
This food grade herb can be used as a consumable tea as well. For internal benefits, olive leaf has been linked to the lowering of blood sugars and blood pressure. If you intend to use this as an internal tea, please note that the safety of consuming this herb during pregnancy has not been established. It is also best when taken with a meal. Research any herbs before you take internally.
