The herb olive leaf is harvested from the olive tree, the same evergreen shrub from which olive oil is obtained. The leaf contains some of the same antioxidant compounds as olive oil, most notably oleuropein and hydroxytyrosol.

Powdered olive leaf is usually encapsulated and taken as a dietary supplement, although it can also be tinctured. Ground olive leaf is also used to make infused oils and salves for the skin.

what else you should know

olive leaf

Olive leaf powder is produced from the foliage of the same Mediterranean tree that olive oil comes from, only the latter involves the fruit. While both lend a balsamic and nutty flavor to foods, the powdered leaf is easily encapsulated and taken as a dietary supplement.

Just as good quality olive oil has a reputation for providing healthy dietary fats and antioxidant compounds, olive leaf contains similar agents, namely hydroxytyrosol, ligustroside and oleuropein. These free-radical scavengers are so potent that they have twice the antioxidant value of green tea extract and 400% more than vitamin C. †

Background: The olive tree has a great history in the Mediterranean region of the world. It is known as a sign of peace. For example, you may have heard the saying, "extending an olive branch." 

Olive oil is the most commonly used component of the olive tree, but olive leaves still have a purpose. 

Description: The olive tree is native to the Mediterranean region. It is an evergreen that grows to about 30 feet tall. The leaves are gathered all year long.
