The olive tree is native to the Mediterranean, where evidence of humans collecting olives dates back 10,000 years. Olive oil has had hundreds of uses throughout history. In addition to food, it has been used for medicine, fuel for oil lamps, soap making and in religious ceremonies.
The ancient Greeks believed the olive tree was a gift from the goddess Athena. Homer, the Greek poet, called olive oil “Liquid gold”. During the 6th and 7th century BC, Greek Laws of Solon prohibited the cutting down of olive trees on punishment of death. There are timeless stories of olive oil used a skin care.
