 Hi Guys! Olive oil is pretty popular in cooking and in the natural hair community. When I first started my loc journey olive oil was and still is today a stable in our household. I talked about my loc journey a few posts back about how I got started, and some of the products I use. I wanted to talk about olive oil and other unique ways you can use it in your everyday life.

  1. You can use Olive oil to shave. Olive oil can provide a closer shave instead of shaving cream!
  2. Olive oil can prevent wax from sticking to a candle holder. Rub a thin coat on the base of the holder before inserting a candle. Dripped wax should peel away easily.
  3. Olive oil can be used to care for your pet. Add 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon to your cat’s food to help prevent hair balls.

  5. Olive Oil can shine stainless steel, other cleaning supplies, such as ammonia, can dull and even corrode stainless steel. Olive oil is a safe and effective shining agent.
  6. Olive Oil can be used to dust wooden furniture. Apply a small bit of oil to a cloth and wipe.
