Ozonating Olive Oil

How Long Should Olive Oil Be Ozonated?


The average time, dependant on the type of ozone generator one is using, is about 3 to four weeks to produce fully ozonated olive oil. Once olive oil is completely ozonated, it will actually turn into a white, solid, gel-like substance when refrigerated. The smell of ozone being emitted from the ozonated olive oil will be noticeable. All ozonated olive oil products must be kept refrigerated at all times.

Ozonated oil is actually created by a redox reaction. The ozone literally burns the oil, and three primary organic peroxides are actually created throughout the entire process from the essential fatty acids in the olive oil. In other words, the first peroxide created reacts a second time to produce a second peroxide, and then finally once again to form C10H18O3. The final process is quite noticeable as the entire substance will turn into white foam. Once this white foam settles, ozonating any further is pointless, as the original oil is no longer present, and the compounds have been taken to a state that no longer reacts with ozone.Only then will raw ozone out-gas from the bubbling oil instead of terpene gas since there are no more molecules left for the ozone to interact with.

We no longer manufacture this product, but liquid ozonated olive oil is olive oil that has not been fully ozonated. The process of ozonation has been stopped just before the oil becomes fully saturated with ozone and turns  to a solid gel.Liquid ozonated olive oil has been ozonated to within a few hours of fully ozonated oil. This type of oil is beneficial for applications on the face and for use as a massage oil, since the liquid ozonated olive oil is less thick and more easily applied to the skin. This oil still has most of the therapeutic qualities of fully ozonated olive oil, but in lesser proportions for the sake of ease of use.We discontinued manufacturing this product when we recognized the need for lightly ozonated olive oil to be available in the marketplace. We believe that lightly ozonated olive oil does a wonderful job to replace liquid ozonated olive oil.

We do not recommend ingestion of fully ozonated or liquid ozonated olive oil  for purposes of parasite cleansing. The only exception to this rule would be the use of the oil for dental problems and gum diseases. In these cases, only small amounts are used.

According to research conducted by Dr Hulda Clark,  lightly or partially ozonated olive oil may be utilized for ingestion. The oil may be ozonated from as little as 20 minutes to 12 hours for her protocols. Dr. Clark recommends the use of lightly or partially ozonated olive oil for internal use, as a part of a parasite mop-up program for ascaris and tapeworms and  to remove PCB's from the body.We do not ship the lightly ozonated olive oil product in the summer.


Take 3 tablespoons of lightly ozonated olive oil in either two doses of 1 1/2 tbs morning and night, or one dose of 3 tbs in the morning followed 1 hour later by 1000 mg L cysteine. 1000 mg of L-cysteine should be taken twice more during the day.  This protocol is done for a total of three weeks. One tablespoon equals 15 ml, so for a full three week mop-up, 945 ml of lightly ozonated olive oil will be required. This is just under one litre of lighly ozonated olive oil.

There seem to be varying bits of information about the doses of O3 oil for this purpose, even within the Dr Clark literature, but after consulting with others, we feel this is the most correct and efficatious dosage. We feel that this product should be taken on an empty stomach to minimize interaction with food.

Use Lightly Ozonated Olive for your Face and the largest organ of your body, your Skin

Lightly ozonated olive oil maintains the properties and characteristics of olive oil which is prized as a fantastic skin conditioner. Since the ozone within the olive oil is still reacting, using partially ozonated olive oil may provide an additional stimulating effect on the skin, and such a formulation, if used within a few months after ozonation, makes an excellent general skin conditioner.

However, please keep in mind that lightly ozonated olive oil does not compare with fully ozonated olive oil for true external therapeutic purposes. It simply does not have the oxidative power of fully ozonated olive oil.
