Olive leaf comes from the same Mediterranean tree as olive oil. Just like the oil expressed from the fruit of this tree, the leaf is rich in nutrients, including a potent antioxidant called oleuropein. Because the structure of the whole leaf is left intact, its chemical composition is less processed and therefore uncompromised.
Whole olive leaf is typically used to prepare teas, infusions and liquid extracts.
Olive leaves are a symbol of divine peace.
