Ozonated Olive made using an ozone generator
Shortly after patenting his his first ozone generator, Nikola Tesla ( in 1900 ) began marketing an ozonated olive oil to medical doctors. Nikola Tesla created his ozonated oil by bubbling ozone through pure olive oil in the presence of a magnetic field for eight weeks. By 1904, ozonated olive oil, also known as Glycozone, began appearing in medical literature, such as "The Medical Uses of Hydrozone and Glycozone", 9th Edition, by New York Chemist Charles Marchland. Ozone, as a very reactive gas, is difficult to stablize for long periods of time in a useable form. However, by bubbling ozone through an ozone resistant container ( such as a glass container ), the ozone gas is trapped, and begins to react with the oil. In essence, what is occuring is a catalytic reaction that actually burns the olive oil. One of the resultant compounds is C10H18O3, with the hydrogen and carbon complex. Some of the terpene gas remains trapped within the oil, and some is released into the environment. While some people may believe that fully ozonated olive oil is an ozone carrier, the oxygen is actually bound and released as a peroxide ( O-O-H bond ). Ozonated olive oil will hold actual ozone gas for a limited amount of time,in its "free form" state.
What are the Applications for Ozonated Olive Oil?
Ozonated Olive Oil is helpful in bacterial infections of the skin and is used primarily for:
How to make ozonated olive oil
Two different forms of ozonated oil exist, namely concentrated and partially ozonated olive oil. Partially ozonated olive oil is easier and quicker to create than concentrated olive oil, but doesn't quite compare with concentrated olive oil with regard to therapeutic purposes.
Partially ozonated olive oil
- Nearly fill the 250ml glass jar with Olive oil.
- Connect the one end of the silicone tube to the aistone,and the other end to the "ozone out" outlet on the ozone generator.
- Connect a length of silicone tubing to the air pump outlet and connect the other end to the "air in" inlet on the ozone generator
- Power on both the ozone generator and the air pump. You should feel and hear air blowing out of the airstone and smell the ozone.
- Place the aistone in the glass jar containing the Olive oil. You should see lots of tiny bubbles developing inside the glass jar.
- You can bubble ozone through the oil for approx 60 minutes if you have a 500 mg/hr ozone machine.)
- After approx 60 minutes power off the ozone generator (and air pump) and remove the aistone from the glass jar
- After screwing on the lid, you can store it in the refrigerator for about 30 days.
Concentrated ozonated olive oil (use of oxygen concentrator or bottled oxygen recommended for excellent results)
- Half fill the stainless vessel with Olive oil.
- Connect the one end of the teflon tube to the airstone, and the other end to the "ozone out" feedthru on the ozone generator.
- Connect a length of teflon tubing to the oxygen concentrator outlet and the other end to the "air in" inlet on the ozone generator
- Power on both the ozone generator and the oxygen concentrator.
- Place aerator stone in olive oil and check to see ozone bubbling out of the airstone and notice the distinct ozone smell.
- You can bubble ozone through the oil until the oil turns into an expanding white foam.
- Once the white foam settles and becomes a cream the process is complete.>
- Power off the ozone generator and oxygen concentrator and remove the airstone from the stainless vessel.
- Scoop the ozonated olive oil out of the stainless vessel into small jars with screw-on lids
- After screwing on the lids, place into the fridge for storage.
- Always put it back into the fridge after use in order to retain the maximum potency of ozone).
Ozonated olive oil, kept refrigerated, retained its effectiveness for over ten years, in tests conducted by German researchers.
