I use olive oil and olive butter along with hemp oil and some other ingredients in my home made dry skin butter.
Wonderful! I just don;t use it on the face because it is comedogenic and blocks pores.

Awesome tips! I just don't quite agree with the personal lubricant bit.. Correct me if I'm wrong. Oil + friction = heat. ouch.

My Italian sister in law said her older relatives used it on their skin all the time, and their skin looked great.

This is funny. I had just drizzled some olive oil over some air popped popcorn right before I saw this. So I guess that makes 41. LOL

Well I think I rather stick to my vitamine E for my face. I like Olive oil good for you in salads but.
As for putting on other things regular oil, not as expensive will do the trick.

Many of these uses for olive oil I knew being a serious advocate for natural products. However, there were a few I was not aware of and I appreciate the additional knowledge. Very worthy information. Thank you for sharing. I'm sure we can all expand from these ideas and suggestions.

Sounds good but how do I work it into my hot flashes? closing the pores brings on hot flashes.
