Sometimes, the leaves and flowers from the orange plant can be used as well. Antibacterial and antifungal properties of this oil are great for skin, especially if you commonly suffer from bacterial conditions such as acne or fungal conditions such as athletes foot.Olive oil comes from olives, the fruit of the olive tree. Olives are a traditional crop of the Mediterranean region. People make olive oil by pressing whole olive. It is used in cosmetics, medicine, soaps, and as a fuel for traditional lamps.
