Olive Leaf Extract has gained attention in recent months for its incredible healing properties. Its uses range from burn and wound care to cardiovascular health and immune boosting properties. These aren't all hype either—all of these uses have been well documented, and many studies have been published about this extracts benefits.
Part of this is due to the anti-oxidants this product is packed with. Olive Leaf Extract contains more anti-oxidants than olive oil, and has gained a lot of attention for these properties. The attention isn't just for physical health and well being however, it also works for beauty and hair care.
You've probably already seen a shampoo that features olive oil as an ingredient, but olive leaf extract is also a powerful tool in your beauty care arsenal.
How olive leaf extract can benefit you:
One of the many benefits for hair is how well olive leaf extract can moisturize your hair. No one likes to have dry, crackling, frizzy hair. If you've been plagued with hair that gets damaged easily and feels dry and crisp, Olive Leaf Extract can smooth and give life to your hair.
On top of this, Olive Leaf Extract adds shine and protects your hair from sun damage. This means quality hair care.
How you can make your own natural shampoo:
It's a little hard to find shampoo manufactured with Olive Leaf Extract already in it, but luckily you can make your own fairly readily. In order to make it you will need:
- 1-2 cups of Olive oil
- 1 cup liquid castile soap
- 1 cup water
- 1 tbs Olive Leaf Extract
To start out with, you'll need to infuse the Olive Leaf Extract in the olive oil. You can start this process by simply mixing a tablespoon of olive leaf extract into 1 or 2 cups of olive oil. You'll only need about a tablespoon of this end result for your first batch of shampoo, but since it takes as much as 3 weeks to infuse the oil, it's worthwhile to make up a large amount and simply keep it on hand.
Place the olive oil/extract combination in a glass jar with a tightly fitted lid, and vigorously shake it. Do this every day for a few weeks, and the extract will impart its properties to the oil.
Once you have some infused olive oil, blend 2 tablespoons of the solution, a cup of water, and one cup of liquid castile soap together. The resulting blend is your shampoo, and it will do wonderful things for your hair.
Olive Leaf Extract is a great way to improve the quality of your hair, and give you the wonderful and healthy locks you've been dreaming of, naturally. It's also relatively inexpensive to make, which is always a bonus.
