The English herbalist, John Gerard (1633) reported that Olive leaves and buds were useful in supporting the body’s proper function. In the 1898 edition of King’s American Dispensatory, it was reported that a strong decoction of Olive leaves could play a role in regulating body temperature.*
There are few human clinical trials conducted using Olive Leaf extract, however numerous pharmacological studies conducted in vitro focus on its heart healthy benefits. The main focus of research has been on the oleuropein compounds. First isolated in 1908, oleuropein supports immune system function and offers antioxidant protection. Olive leaf may also show promise in maintaining healthy blood sugar levels and in promoting a normal balance of healthy bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract. More research is warranted to validate its use for these purposes.*

Both the oil and the dried green-grayish colored leaves are used medicinally. The olive tree has been held in high esteem throughout history. Moses reportedly decreed that men who cultivated the leaf be exempt from serving in the army. The oil is symbolic of purity and goodness, while the olive branch represents peace and prosperity.
