The Story of Olive Oil
The olive tree is a symbol of peace and abundance; the oil of its fruit has anointed the most powerful leaders throughout history. Olive crowns and olive branches, representing purification and blessings, were ritually offered to deities and powerful figures and crowned the winners in friendly games and in war. They have been found in tombs dating back centuries.
Olives were first cultivated in the Eastern part of the Mediterranean, in the region known as the Fertile Crescent. In ancient Greece and Rome, olive oil was the hottest commodity; ships were built for the sole purpose of transporting it from Greece to trading posts around the Mediterranean.
