Olive Oil: the liquid gold that dates back to ancient Greece!
The health benefits of olive oil are unrivaled, and research reveals more and more benefits nearly every day. In fact, we are only just beginning to understand the endless ways olive oil can improve not only our health but also our lives. Olive oil is the cornerstone of the Mediterranean diet.
Olive has been a huge part of life in Greece since ancient years. Indeed, one could reasonably assert that the entire Greek civilization was established upon the branches of this humble and unique tree. Goddess ‘Athena’ was believed to have gifted an olive tree to the Athenians which grew next to the Acropolis. Presumably in honor of the city state’s devotion to her. Another myth states that it was Hercules who brought the first olive tree from heavens. Homer refers to olive oil as the ‘liquid gold’ while Aristotle insisted that the cultivation of olive trees was a real science. According to Hippocrates, olive oil was used in ancient Greece for more than 60 pharmaceutical applications!
