Botanical Name: Olea europaea

Aroma: Same As for Virgin Olive Cooking Oil (Smells Somewhat Like Olives). 

Viscosity: Thick.

Absorption/Feel: Oily.

Color: Light to Medium Green.

Shelf Life: 1-2 Years

Notes: Olive Oil's heavy viscosity, oily texture and aroma makes it less preferred than other oils for skin care and aromatherapy applications. If not carefully used or used in a small dilution with another carrier, it may overpower a blend.

When purchasing Olive Oil, be sure that you are purchasing a cold pressed, virgin oil.
