Lets talk about one of our favorite all natural oils: Olive Oil. We all know that olive oil is great to cook with but did you know that it has many other around the house and beauty uses! Here 4 other great ways to use olive oil!
Paper stickers can be a real pain, and they can leave a sticky residue on a variety of surfaces, especially glass. Dab a bit of olive oil onto the residue and give it a rub with a soft cloth. No more residue.
Un-sticking a ZipperIf you’ve ever tried to un-stick a zipper, you know how tough it can be. Olive oil can be applied to a cotton ball and dabbed on a zipper to help loosen the mechanism. It doesn’t take much to work, but it is effective. Just be careful not to get the oil on your clothes.
Is your hair as dry and brittle as sagebrush in the desert? Put the moisture back into it by heating 1/2 cup olive oil (don’t boil it), and then liberally applying it to your hair. Cover your hair with a plastic grocery bag, then wrap it in a towel. Let it set for 45 minutes, then shampoo and thoroughly rinse.
A big bottle of olive oil is a lot cheaper than designer hand lotion, but it turns out it can be equally as effective. The best time to use olive oil as a hand moisturizer is at night since it will stay on your skin for a while before it fully dries. Wear soft gloves to bed for amazingly smooth hands in the morning.
