Olive Leaf History
The ancient Egyptians may be been the first to put the Olive Leaf to practical use.
Olive Leaf has been regarded as a symbol of heavenly power, and in keeping with that belief, they extracted its oil and used it to mummify their kings. In later cultures, Olive Leaf was a popular folk remedy for combating fevers. In England, in 1854, a popular pharmaceutical journal carried a report that contained the following simple therapeutic recipe:
Boil a handful of leaves in a quart of water down to half its original volume. Then administer the liquid in the amount of a wineglass every 3 or 4 hours until the fever is gone.
This Olive Leaf remedy became well known in England for helping sick Britons returning from tropical colonies. The author asserted that a bitter substance in the leaves was the key ingredient. He was right. Decades later, scientists isolated a bitter substance from the Olive Leaf and named it oleuropein. Oleuropein was found to be one ingredient in a compound produced by the olive tree that makes the tree particularly robust and resistant to insect and bacterial damage. Oleuropein is present in olive oil, throughout the olive tree, and is, in fact, the bitter-tasting substance that is eliminated from the olives..
