Historically,

the

Olive

Leaf

was

used

as

a

cure-all

for

many

ailments

in

ancient

Egypt.

In

the

1800’s

it

served

as

a

treatment

for

malaria.

Biblically,

the

Olive

or

Olive

Tree

is

mentioned

numerous

times.

It

was

used

as

both

food and medicine. In God’s gracious wisdom, He has provided us leaves of various trees to serve as medicine.

…the fruit thereof shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine.

Ezekiel 47:12

The

Olive

Tree

was

a

symbol

of

hope

and

life.

It

was

a

life

source

for

the

Israelites.

It

provided

them

with

oil

to

make

bread,

light

lamps,

holy

anointing

and

use

on

foods

&

eat.

The

wood

from

the

tree

was

used

in

the

building

of

the

temple.

The

Olive

Tree

is

also

one

of

the

most

resilient

of

all

trees,

able

to

survive

the

harshest

of

conditions

while

continuing

to

bear

green

leaves

.

Olive

Trees

can

live

for

hundreds

of

years

and

some

have

even

been

dated

to

be

as

old

as

2,000-3,000

years

old

.

It

has

the

amazing

ability

to

regenerate

itself

if

the

trunk

is

damaged.

The

Olive

Tree

was

used

symbolically

in

the

Bible,

such

as

in

Romans

11

and

in

Revelation

11:3-4.

We

also

know

that

when

Jesus

was

on

earth

He

went

to

pray

on

the

Mount

of

Olives,

where

many

olive

trees grew

.
