Press this against the head and it will cure a headache. Olive leaves scattered or placed in a room spread a peaceful vibration throughout the area.
Homeopathic Uses- Used as an infusion, decoction, extract and tincture. Olive leaves have always had a reputation as a health-enhancer. Modern research is centered on the olive leafs powerful antibiotic, antiviral and anti-fungal properties, which support the immune system and yet do not harm beneficial bacteria. Olive leaf contains oleuropein and several types of flavonoids, including rutin, apigenin, luteolin. Other Europeans found it could also increase blood flow in the coronary arteries, relieve arrhythmias, and prevent intestinal muscle spasms. It can stimulate phagocytosis, an immune system response in which cells ingest harmful microorganisms and foreign matter. The research suggests that this may be a `true anti-viral` compound because it appears to selectively block an entire virus-specific system in the infected host. It thus appears to offer healing effects not addressed by pharmaceutical antibiotics
