Olive Oil Uses from Jenny

20 Bizarre Household Tips

This is the neatest thing. Excellent tips that I’ll for sure use. I’ve heard a few of these tips and welcome the chance to use many if not all of these. My doctor told me to use this in my ears a few months ago and it did relieve the itching.

Thanks for sending it Jenny.

    I love cool little tips like these!!!

  2. SKL says:

    Cool. I knew some of these, but some are new.

  3. Joy says:

    I knew some too but a lot of them were new to me. I am already using it on dry skin. My eyelids have been so sore since I had that cold there and this feels really good. Those rashes too I get sometimes and I love the idea of this. I love the hair treatment idea too and the WD40 thing. I never knew that.

    I also use olive oil on my good knife handles. I apply it very liberally and massage in the wood and let them sit all night and then in the morning I rub them with a cotton flour sack towel and they get really shiny and it makes them look and feel really nice.

    For massages if someone is allergic to nuts I do use olive oil. Because the massage oil does contain almond oils. Also we sell garlic ear drops and they work great!

    Bailey’s doctor told me to use olive oil in his ears. Every 2 weeks, we put a drop or two in. Instead of using Q-tips to clean the inside (which is more harmful than it is good, I guess!) I still use a Q-tip to clean the outside.

    These are great ideas. I know I’ll be using the hair and skin one. Bailey has eczema, bad. But I’ll try it on a small area first. I have dry hair, so this will work on my hair. I’ll try it tonight. Thanks Jenny!

    I’ve used Olive oil in a pinch for earaches. Usually Vitamin E though. Works wonders combined with very gentle blowing in the affected ear. I don’t support smoking, but blowing smoke would even help numbing the pain! I used to get ear aches a lot!!

  7. Joseph says:

    Yes, they do, just not immediate relief. Plus hard to keep a child still enough, never mind putting something in their ear. LOL!

  8. Karen Joy says:

    Its great for cuticles.I dont buy cuticle oil anymore.This is reminding me to use it again as the weather has changed my hands and cuticles are so dry.

  9. Nikki says:

    I just covered my entire body in Olive oil. I thought it would be oily, but my skin feels silky smooth. It’s one of the things I hate about winter, the dry air. This will help so much. My hair is soaking in it now.

    • Joy says:

      Did you just put it in your hands and rub gently? I’m afraid of overdoing it but that sounds heavenly to put it on as lotion. My eyelids feel great. It also really worked well taking mascara off this afternoon.

      • Nikki says:

        I did. I just poured a little bit in my hands, then rubbed it on like lotion. It soaked up SO fast, that I ended up putting more on my legs. My hair feels nice, too. Gosh, this might make the winter air bearable! I told Bailey about it, and we put some on his arms right away. It’s hard with eczema, you never know what will irritate it more. Thankfully, it didn’t.

    Before I saw this, I tried the Coconut treatment for my hair… same result as Olive Oil,I would assume – my hair was crazy soft, very smooth, but still manageable. And it smelled WAAY better than olive oil!! If you use coconut oil, it’s a solid, so you have to warm it first to a liquid, or massage the solid into your hair. Either way, it was nice. And left my hands soft, too! (massage oil into moist hair/scalp for 5 min, let sit for 10 min, then wash as normal)
