As a health and beauty product, olive oil is hard to beat. Consider the following uses:
Exfoliate: Mix oil with salt and scrub face to remove dead skin cells.
Bathing: Add a splash of olive oil to bathwater for softer skin. Moisturizer: Apply olive oil directly to the skin, especially after bathing. It’s very good for rough areas such as hands, elbows and feet.
Shaving lubricant: Apply before and after shaving.
Remove sticky stuff: Ever get paint in your hair? How about gum? Rub on the olive oil and give it a few minutes to remove either one. It’s even useful in removing stickers and labels from things around the house.
Hairballs: If you have a cat you probably know about hairballs. A quarter-teaspoon of olive oil a day can help prevent them.
