Olive oil taken internally in small doses was recommended by Edgar Cayce in many cases involving problems with assimilation and elimination. It was also regularly recommended after certain therapeutic interventions such as castor oil packs and the three day apple fast.
Edgar Cayce Quotes:
"The [olive] oil adds to the elasticity of the functioning of the intestinal tract, acting also as a food value to the system itself." (Edgar Cayce)
"Saffron to which has been added water as a tea, which would be not only effective to the
digestive forces but with the gastric forces that naturally arise in the stomach and digestive area - added with the small quantities of the olive oil - would supply food for the system and cause a tendency for an accumulation of those forces that will aid in not only ridding the condition from
the blood but will aid the supply of lymph and emunctory circulation through the digestive system, and bring healing to internal forces of the body." (Edgar Cayce)
"Also we would take internally very small quantities or doses of Olive Oil, taken often, for period of three or four days; then leave off for three or four days, then begin again. A quarter to half a teaspoonful every three or four hours during the waking period."
Suggested Use: Use as a natural massage lotion to nourish and soften your skin. Ideal for preparing your own massage formulas. Add a few drops to your bath, massage into entire body, apply as a facial moisturizer, use for removing make-up or use after shaving.

Uses of Olive Oil by Edgar Cayce:
The most common suggestion for external applications of olive oil is as a lubricant for massage. One reading states succinctly: "As given, as known and held by the ancients more than the present modes of medication, olive oil - properly prepared (hence pure olive oil should always be used) - is one of the most effective agents for stimulating muscular activity, or mucus-membrane activity, that may be applied to a body." (Cayce)
Another reading adds: "…for few oils there be that are as much food for the tissue and muscular forces of the body as of the olive oil." (Cayce)
Considered a "skin food" (noted in several readings), olive oil can also be combined with other substances (tincture of myrrh, castor oil, or peanut oil; equal parts) and rubbed into the body, as much as the body can absorb. Its absorption makes for greater elasticity (in the abdominal walls, when massaged into the abdomen), prevents adhesions from forming, relieves soreness, stimulates blood and lymph circulation, and is "very strengthening to the body…" (Cayce)
Four instances of flannel cloth packs saturated in hot olive oil were mentioned. For one seventy-year-old woman, suffering from colitis, the cloth was to be placed "on abdomen and side" to "assist more in breaking up these attacks and give more stimulation to the walls of the intestinal tract, by increasing the circulation." (Cayce) In an earlier reading she was told to place the pack "across the intestine and lower bowel, where these troubles show in the walls of intestine…" (Cayce)
A two-year-old girl, also suffering from inflamed and sore bowels along with a fever, received her fifth reading on June 3, 1928. It noted that whenever she had pain or "a hardening of the region about this portion where trouble occurs; that is, in the right side, in the ascending colon," she was to "apply hot packs, or very warm packs, just so it will not burn the body…" (Cayce) The mother later reported that her daughter was much improved.
Another woman was told to mix equal amounts of olive and peanut oil and apply the heated "heavy flannel or toweling" pack to areas on her back that needed relaxation; she was advised to do this each time prior to her osteopathic adjustments.
For a forty-year-old man, suffering from past physical problems, the reading advised a cabinet sweat bath in which a little olive oil mixed with witch hazel was added to the boiling water to create a fume for a moist heat bath. This is the only occurrence of olive oil being used in such a way.
Other Beneficial Uses of Olive Oil:
For dry, frizzy hair, use a small amount of Olive Oil on those brittle ends to help moisturize and smooth for more manageable hair. Rub a few drops of Olive Oil into a dry, flaking scalp for an ultra moisturizing natural remedy. May also be used to saturate the hair and scalp as a weekly treatment to soften and smooth the hair shaft for shiny, healthy looking hair.
