But the olive tree is also used in pharmacy and cosmetics… In this book, Richard Douat offers us a better understanding of the olive tree and its hidden treasures. He presents us with : – the stories and legends surrounding the olive tree; – the cultivation and exploitation of the olive tree: countries of cultivation, planting, pruning, grafting, cultivation methods, harvesting, etc.; – the different varieties of olive oil: composition, appellations, benefits, etc.; – the medicinal properties, gastronomy, beauty care, etc.
