We use green olives because they're rich in vitamins that nourish the skin, and because they improve the hair's tensile strength. Olives are a popular skin treatment for sore and dry skin, and as a carrier oil, olive oil is used in massage to allow more potent essential oils to be used directly on the skin.
The olive tree is a slow-growing and fragrant evergreen that originates from Asia. Most green olives are now imported from Spain for their culinary use and in order to produce olive oil. Before they are distributed around the world, green olives are usually fermented in a brine solution with sugar.
