What are the benefits of Olive Oil?
1. Use it daily in the kitchen
The fresh, fruity taste of this Australian Olive Oil is perfect in salad dressings, or in marinades and rubs for meat, poultry and seafood. Use it every day to roast, sauté and in baked goods. Drizzle over steamed greens, into soups or enjoy in pasta dishes.
Most cooking (frying, roasting and baking) is done below the smoke point of a good Extra Virgin Olive Oil (about 200 degrees), which means you won’t be producing any harmful chemicals when cooking with it – just don’t use it for deep-frying. The health-giving antioxidants can be reduced during prolonged heating, but many remain intact. Cooking vegetables in Extra Virgin Olive Oil will actually help you absorb the antioxidants and vitamins in the vegetables.
2. Great for skin
Olive oil can be very soothing and moisturising when applied to the skin, especially dried hands and feet.
Try soaking your feet in warm water before bed, patting them dry with a towel and then applying olive oil to both feet. You can even wear socks afterwards to keep the oil in and to stop it from getting on your sheets!
