Some tips on how I use EVOO:

As a facial moisturizer
- after washing apply 2 - 3 drops of EVOO on your palm and massage in to the face.

As a Hair Moisturizer / Hot oil
- put a small amount of EVOO on a small container. heat for 5 - 10 mins in the microwave. massage the scalp and roots with it.

As a lip exfoliant and moisturizer
- mix sugar (preferably brown sugar) and EVOO, exfoliate the lips with it then wash. you can apply EVOO alone again into your lips
