Uses - Olive oil is a heavy, fatty oil that is very nutritious and great for dry, chapped skin. It can be blended with other, lighter oils for use in massage and makes an excellent base for salves to treat areas of very dry skin, such as cracked lips, elbows and heels. It makes a good addition to oil blends that help strengthen the nails. It helps protect from environmental damage, so is a great addition to hand creams for those who work outside. Suitable for babies and infants in a blend with other oils.
Organic Certificate - This oil is certified organic by the Soil Association, which means you can be sure that it has been produced to the highest ethical and environmental standards. The Soil Associationís standards exceed the UK government's minimum requirements for organic products in many areas but particularly in animal welfare, GM and the use of pesticides. Standards are constantly reviewed to ensure they deal with current issues.
