Olive oil is an indispensable aspect of the Cypriot history,
economy and culture. Olive trees have been cultivated in
Cyprus for many centuries. Olive trees were introduced to
Cyprus in the Neolithic era, between 7000 and 3000 BC, but
they were not fully cultivated until the end of the Bronze Age
(1600 to 1100 BC), which proves that the cultivation of olive
trees and the production of olive oil have been part of the
Cypriot traditions since ancient times.
Olive oil continues to occupy an important place in the Cypriot diet, religious festivities and homemade remedies.
Even the Cypriot national flag cherishes the olive tree as it has two crossed olive branches which represent peace.
For some inhabitants of Cyprus, olives and olive oil are the best remedies against the evil eye and evil spirits, as well as blessings for the birth of children, the creation of a new business, weddings, etc.
