Olea europaea
Uses: Culinary/Medicinal
Native to the Mediterranean, the word "oil" in several languages is derived from the name of this tree. Olive trees are extremely tough and long-lived, and some trees are known to be over 3,000 years old. Olive trees produce an edible fruit, the olive, from which an exquisite oil can be produced. The leaves of the olive tree are full of symbolism and meaning, particularly that of the peace offering; to extend an olive branch is to wish for your opponent the abundant riches of the olive tree. The dried leaves can be steeped to make a tea that has anti-microbial properties, and is effective against infection and fever.
