HAIR

1. Dandruff
Dandruff is usually caused when the scalp becomes dry and flaky, causing those unsightly white flakes.  Olive oil is a natural moisturizer - when massaged into the scalp it will moisturize your scalp, reducing the appearance of your dandruff naturally, without having to resort to using chemically laden shampoos.  Use the treatment as often as needed until the problem fades and then just once or twice a week to keep it from reoccurring.

2. Hair Mask
Combine half a cup of olive oil with one well-beaten egg yolk and a squeeze of lemon. Put this mask on your head, let it sit for 15-30minutes, then rinse if out with cold water and then shampoo and condition your hair as usual.

3. Frizzy Hair
Dry hair is brittle hair and even just brushing your hair can cause split ends that turn your hair into a frizzy mess.  Using olive oil on just the ends of your hair moisturizes those brittle ends, and will help smooth down the split ends, taming the frizz and the flyaway hairs.  Use it after styling on just on the ends of your hair.

4. For added Shine
Damaged and dry hair looks dull and lifeless but you can bring your hair back to life with olive oil.  When used as a conditioner olive oil infuses your hair with moisture, restoring it to a healthy and beautiful looking shine.

5. Moisturizing
For extremely dry hair mix 4 tbsp. of olive oil with a half tsp. of honey. Fill a bowl with boiling water and place a small bowl containing the mix in it so that you don’t lose the benefits of both the oil and honey. Apply this to your scalp and let it sit for 20-30minutes before washing your hair. Weekly olive oil treatments are a natural way to soften your hair because it will saturate your hair with moisture.

MASSAGE

1. Weekly massage
Good blood circulation is essential to provide natural glow to the skin. A weekly massage with extra virgin olive oil will enhance blood circulation as well as keep your skin young and moisturized. You can combine the olive oil with many types of essential oils to create an inexpensive, healing and aromatic massage oil. Ayurvedic doctors prescribe olive oil massage for the relief of swelling, gout, arthritis, muscle pains and sprains.

2. Minimize stretch marks

3. Dry Skin
