Olea europaea is an evergreen tree that produces oblong, silvery green leaves that are used to produce liquid extracts. The leaf is also dried and ground into a fine powder for use in making soap and other skin care products. Olive leaf powder is also taken as a dietary supplement in capsule form, or is added to foods as a seasoning.

Olive leaf and fruit (olives) are substantially high in polyphenolic antioxidants, compounds that prevent the formation of free radicals that cause damaging chain reactions in cells. According to researchers at Southern Cross University of Australia, olive leaf has the highest Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC), a measurement of antioxidant value, out of more than 50 other botanicals tested.†
