Hello, my dear readers 🙂 on this blog post, I will share with you information about olive leaves and their health benefits and my easy but powerful DIY facial mask that balances, nourishes, protects and rejuvenates the skin.

While I was travelling to visit my family in Israel, I felt inspired by the Mediterranean environment.

As a Naturopath, I work with nature, with herbal remedies, essential oils, wholefoods based nutrition and flower remedies, every time I see the effects of these natural gifts I feel amazed by the wisdom of Mother Nature!

Therefore I decided to share with you more about one of the most common trees in Israel that is packed with health benefits.



In Israel, the soil and the climate create the perfect match for the olive tree’s growth.

Israel is a country with a wide variety of landscapes from the north of the country which is more wild and mountainous with the beautiful Carmel mountain and Golan heights, rivers and the famous lake Kinneret also known as the “Sea of Galilee.”

Down to the south with beautiful beaches alongside the Mediterranean Sea.

In the centre, you will find our biggest cities like Jerusalem, the holy city,

and Tel Aviv, a vibrant modern city.

In Israel, tourists can always find a perfect combination for an ideal vacation. 🙂

In 2 hours drive from Jerusalem, you will reach an extraordinary place, The shores that surround the Dead Sea are about 430 metres below sea level, making this the lowest point on Earth. 

Its waters are rich in natural minerals like magnesium, known around the world for their health benefits.

As part of Israel views, you can see olive trees that grow everywhere.

From olive trees, olive oil is produced, and olives that are commonly used all around the world.

According to the traditional herbal medicine, the olive leaf that is considered to be a medicinal herb from the ancient times.

Olive Leaves Health Benefits

The olive leaf has many particular benefits that include beneficial effects on cardiovascular parameters and immune system support.1,2

The olive leaf also has health benefits when an extract of it is applied on the skin. 

One of the compounds in olive leaves and oil is the oleuropein, a powerful antioxidant.

A 2014 trial from Italy, checked the cosmetic properties of oleuropein against UVB-induced erythema (reddening of the skin).

The results showed that oleuropein formulations reduced erythema, transepidermal water loss and blood flow. 3

I created this easy DIY mask recipe that is suitable for every skin type:


After applying the green clay mask, I used natural pomegranate seeds oil as a serum.

That’s it for now 🙂

Until the next time
