Throughout history, olive oil was the most important vegetable oil. Italy, Spain, Greece and France produce the finest quality olive oil. As a folk remedy, the leaves were often used to lower blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar levels. The first pressing of the finest selected olives is called extra virgin olive oil, which is considered top grade.
