Greeks called it the dew of the sea and were captivated by its wondrous curative properties to grow, smooth and condition hair, disinfect the scalp, and leaving a lasting scent. They soon infused the dew of the sea into handmade hair masks, potions and rubs, which served to treat dandruff and heal dryness on the scalp.
In ancient Crete, the Minoan civilisation a splendid tree took root and burgeoned with plump, green fruit. The wild olive tree was considerd a divine blessing and the potent oil redeemed their pores of dirt and grime, lifted spots and acne, banished wrinkles and fine lines, and imparted deep moisture. Before long, the Greek women developed anointing rituals of crushing the olive’s leaves and applying it to their face giving their complexions a clear, unblemished glow and age defying miracle.
