Ancient Uses For Olive Oil

In ancient times people used olive oil in many different ways. It was used as fuel in lamps, as a skin balm and of course as a food ingredient. An explanation for its widespread use as a skin balm was probably unknown to them. The fact that peroxide, a naturally occurring component in olive oil, might have been one of the reasons for olive oil’s wide-spread use as a soothing skin balm might have accounted for its popularity as a healing agent. After all, peroxide is still widely used as a topical solution for cuts and scrapes.
