Discovering Olive Oil Outside Of The Kitchen
Many people swear by coconut oil and shea butter, I use to be one of them!
That is, until I discovered the joy and wonder of olive oil ! Now, I wasn’t
totally oblivious to olive oil, just its vast capabilities! I have long used olive
oil in the kitchen, but I must say I was in the dark about using it in the
bathroom. Olive oil has become the staple in my beauty regimen. The skin
and hair potion that I produce, San Sau, has a base of olive oil.
A Litte History
Originating from the Mediterranean, the olive tree and oil have been
cultivated and used dating back to the B.C. era . Olive oil is widely
accredited for it’s cosmetic, culinary, and medicinal abilities! It is anciently
referred to as liquid gold. Besides it providing a rich and robust taste to the
culinary scene, olive oil works wonders for health and beauty. My personal
experience with olive oil has permanently changed my view of skin care.
Before my olive oil discovery I would lubricate with lotions full of
preservatives and chemicals, then I started using coconut oil and shea butter.
My shift in awareness was a direct result of my diet change. I am 6 months into my transition of consuming a plant based diet after 3 years of passionately flirting with the idea without a commitment. Making veggies the staple in my diet fine tuned my awareness to the needs of my mind, body, and environment. I can honestly say my lifestyle change altered my paradigm and they way I perceive, receive, and process information.
Using olive oil as the base of San Sau was a no brainer. What other oil could
be better?Olive oil helps relieve skin irritation and inflammation. It is a
source of essential vitamins A and K. It contains polyphenols, which are
antioxidants, that repair, renew, and stimulate cell growth for smoother,
healthier, and firmer skin. It penetrates deep into the skin, heals dry and
brittle nails, softens the cuticles and aids in the production of collagen. Olive
oil on the scalp can help to prevent hair loss by halting the production of
DHT (Dihydrotestosterone), a hormone, which causes the hair follicle to
decrease. It conditions and controls dandruff due to its anti-fungal and
Ever since I incorporated olive oil into my beauty regimen through my
skincare product San Sau, I receive so many compliments on my hair and
skin! I once suffered from erythrodermic eczema and seborrheic dermatitis.
Considered a chronic form of eczema, seborrheic dermatitis appears on the
body where there are a lot of oil-producing (sebaceous) glands like the
upper back, nose and scalp. I would scale up all over my T-zone , especially
my hairline and even in my ears.
Using San Sau has really changed my appearance. My hair is longer,
stronger and and all around healthier. My skin has a more even and radiant
complexion and my scalp is nothing to be embarrassed about anymore. My
body stays moisturized and supple all day long. My nails and cuticles are in
the best condition I have ever seen them in. I use to be a chronic nail bitter,
but after witnessing San Sau take my nails from dry and brittle to long and
luxurious I no longer bite them. I have been biting my nails for over 20
years, but seeing them grow so fast and strong put a halt to my hand to
mouth obsession. San Sau is definitely no one trick pony and neither are
any of it’s four simple ingredients especially olive oil.
