Here are some of our favorite uses for Olive Oil in the bedroom!

Posted

Did you know that Olive Oil is good for not only use in the Kitchen but also in the bed room. Olive Oil is a wonderful multi use product. Here are some of our favorite uses for it in the bedroom!

1. Preshampoo Hair Treatment Olive oil has been used as a hair treatment since ancient Egyptian times. First, warm the olive oil in the microwave or in hot water. Then apply it generously to the ends of hair and scalp. Leave it in for up to 10 to 20 minutes with a bag and towel wrapped around it, and then shampoo it out.

2. Lip Scrub Combine coarse sugar with a teaspoon of olive oil for a chapped-lip fix. You can also add a splash of lemon juice for added flavor and acidic exfoliating properties. This scrub is good enough to eat (literally). Plus, you can expand the recipe for your whole body. 

3. Eye-Makeup Remover We know what you're thinking—slathering olive oil all over your face would actually cause bigger problems and clog pores. But in actuality, the oil grabs onto other oil-based products (think: Like attracts like), making it a great precleansing step to remove stubborn eye makeup. Follow it up with warm water and a pH-balanced face wash. 

4. Ear-Wax Remedy If you often have ear-wax buildup, turn to olive oil to flush out the clog. For three or four nights, put a few drops in the ears before bed to help loosen excess wax. 

5. Shine Serum There's no need to buy a separate hair product to impart shine on second-day strands. Just rub a few drops of olive oil on flyaway ends after styling for an extra-glossy finish.

6. Shaving Cream Run out of shaving cream? Head to the kitchen and slather legs with olive oil before applying the blade. You'll ward off razor burn and bumps with the help of this natural lubricant. 

7. Antibacterial Balm If you're taking an all-natural approach to medicine, you can whip up this DIY recipe for a Neosporin knockoff. It includes antibacterial olive oil along with lavender, calendula, and tea tree oil to ward off germs and scarring. 

8. Cuticle Conditioner Want to grow longer, stronger nails? Use olive oil as your cuticle softener. Chef Giada De Laurentiis applies the oil to her hands as she cooks, and you can easily keep a little by the sink for post-sanitizing moisture. 

9. Eczema Remedy The best and most widespread use for olive oil is as an intense moisturizer. This product works great as an allover treatment for extra-dry skin. Since it's natural, it's the ideal pick for eczema and more. 

10. Diaper-Rash Treatment There are very few products that are safe for both babies and adults. Olive oil is perfect for the sensitive skin on a baby's bottom and as a moisturizing remedy for cradle cap too. 

11. Cracked-Heel Repair Split, rough heels need moisture to heal. After exfoliating with a pumice stone, apply olive oil to feet. Put on socks to lock in the hydrating treatment as you sleep. 

12. Makeup-Brush Cleaner Cleaning your makeup brushes should be a monthly ritual. You can use a DIY cleanser that's two parts antibacterial soap and one part olive oil.

Try some of these out and let us know how they worked for you! Do you have another use that is your favorite? What is it?
