Homer called it “liquid gold.”
In ancient Greece, athletes ritually rubbed it all over their body.
Its mystical glow illuminated history.

Drops of it seeped into the bones of dead saints and martyrs through holes in their tombs. Olive oil has been more than mere food to the peoples of the Mediterranean:
it has been medicinal, magical, an endless source of fascination and wonder and the fountain of great wealth and power. The olive tree, symbol
of abundance, glory and peace, gave its leafy branches to crown the victorious in friendly
games and bloody war, and the oil of its fruit has anointed the noblest of heads throughout history. Olive crowns and olive branches, emblems of benediction and purifiation, were ritually offered
to deities and powerful figures: some were even found in Tutankhamen’s tomb.
