Question from Rex
I probably should direct this to Michele and Bam Bam, but my gut tells me someone out there has had personal experience with this subject.
I know from history that Olive Leaf has been used for antibiotic and antiviral medication.
Once upon a time, long, long, ago in a place far away (at least from Texas), in the days of broad swords, shields, and battle-axes, even a small wound was a death sentence due to infection. The French noticed that Spanish soldiers were returning to the battlefield within a couple of weeks after being wounded and wanted to know how. The slipped a couple of ole boys in to the Spanish hospital and found out the doctors were using Olive leaf poultice on the wounds and giving the men Olive leaf tea to drink.
Question: How do you go about getting actual Olive leaves and how would the tea be made?
