The importance of olive oil over the years
According to Greek tradition, the first olive tree was a gift from the goddess Athena, planted on the Acropolis. When goddess Athena bested god Poseidon in a quarrel over patronage of the city of Athens, she donated the olive tree to its inhabitants. They planted it, cultivated it, and depicted the goddess Athena in Athenian coins with an olive wreath and an amphora with oil.
In Ancient Greece, the olive tree held an important place in the economy and was considered a symbol of wisdom and prosperity. In those days, olive oil was the main ingredient in the diet and the treatments. It was also used in cosmetics or as means of heating and lighting, even as a currency. In sports events, such as in the Olympic Games, winners were crowned with an olive branch.
The use of olive oil remains necessary these days. Its ingredients, rich in monounsaturated fatty acids, which are among the good fats, make it different from other vegetable oils. Also, olive oil is a source of antioxidants and helps to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
