Magical attributes: Wisdom, peace, luck, to end arguments.

History/Uses: To the Greeks the olive was a symbol of wisdom, to the Romans an icon of peace.

The carrying of an olive branch, like a white flag, is recognized as a message that hostilities

are ceased. Ancient peoples made use of olive oil in food, care of the body, for warmth, and

for medicine. For constipation, a tablespoon of olive oil taken in the morning or with soup will

ease the problem. This is also believed to ease colic. Externally, when mixed with egg white

the oil makes a good treatment for burns or bites. Chopped olive leaves in tincture form have

been shown to help control diabetes and hypertension.
