Extra virgin olive oil (Olea europaea) is made by simply crushing olives and extracting their juice, it is the oil that is retained from the first pressing of the olive and is left in its natural unrefined state.  The remainder of the olive material is further processed with industrial techniques to extract more oil from it.  Extra virgin olive oil is the only olive oil that is made without the use of chemicals and industrial refining techniques.  Its appearance is a greenish yellow color with a characteristic aroma.  Organic extra virgin olive oil is commonly known to be the highest quality oil available.  Olive oil is used in soap primarily for its exceptionally mild, slippery, and creamy lather. It makes a long lasting bar that produces tiny bubbles.
