olive tree

    Olives are the fruit of the olive tree.

botanical information:

    Botanical name: Olea europaea

    Common name: olive

    Use the botanical name when ordering seeds (bulbs, etc.) or when looking up information in the library. Common names vary by nation, culture, and region, and sometimes the same common name is applied to different plants.


    Origin: The olive is a small green evergreen tree native to Mediterranean regions, but naturalized to climates as varied as those of Australia, California, and Texas.

    History: Thirteen (13) is the number of rebirth. The number 13 appears in the Great Seal of the United States (and the U.S. one dollar bill) in the number of arrows in the claws of the eagle and in the leaves in the olive branch in the other claw of the American blad eagle. This represents that the U.S. was a rebirth of a new nation dedicated to civilization at its highest.

part used:

    Part Used: The well-known green to blue-black fruit of this tree yields a useful, edible oil. Both the oil and the dried green-grayish colored leaves are used in herbal medicine.

nutritional information:

    Olive oil contains monounsaturated fats (anti-inflammatory), phenols (cancer fighting antioxidants), and vitamin E (lowers risk of heart disease, protects skin from damage, and prevents nerve damage).

    See also Chinese herbalism below for Chinese gender and Chinese flavor.


    Cold-pressed, extra-virgin olive oil contains more phenols and the vitamin E is undamaged.


    Sauté vegetables in olive oil. Drizzle a little olive oil on salads. Use olive oil in pesto.

    You can put a selection of nuts (such as almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, and/or walnuts) along with a little bit of olive oil into a blender and make fresh nut butter. Nut butter on bread (or in pita pockets) is a healthy “on-the-go” snack.

magickal correspondences and uses:

    Magickal substitutions: Rosemary usually may be safely substituted for any herb in magick spells and rituals. Roses may safely be substituted for any flower.

Magical Uses
