Ozone therapy has been popular around Europe for many decades where it is used to treat numerous ailments ranging from strokes to dermatitis. In the US, its use as a medical treatment varies between states but it appears to be increasing in popularity while ozonated oils have been researched fairly extensively.

It is produced by using very high quality, cold pressed virgin olive oil which is put through a manufacturing process referred to as ‘ozone injection’. This process involves bubbling the ozone into the oil for a fairly extended period until it is ready for use.
Benefits of ozonated olive oil
Ozonated olive oil is most commonly used for the skin. It can be applied directly to the skin in exactly the same way that you would use a skin cream or salve.
It has properties that can help stimulate regeneration of skin cells while also being able to sterilize and clean wounds. Ozonated olive oil can also reduce inflammation, ease irritation and speed up healing.
As a topical massage paste, the ozonated oil acts as a natural antioxidant which allows for toxins and lactic acid to be released from your pores which cleanses the skin and helps get rid of dirt and bacteria.
This and its antibacterial qualities makes it a useful natural treatment for acne while it is also used effectively to treat many chronic skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. As well as its ability to cleanse the skin, ozonated olive oil helps ease irritation and reduce redness and swelling of the skin.
Because of its antioxidant actions, ozonated olive oil can also be used to eradicate some of the signs of aging like wrinkles and diminish the appearance of age spots.
