Hi fledgling,

You got wondering, since I didn't personally know of any herbal use for Russian Olive (Elaeagnus Angustifolia), so I looked it up.

I think you might be in for a surprise too.

Recent strands of cottonwood trees are mixed with Russian olive in some places.

If the fruit is red its Autumn Olive. The Russian Olive is Elaeagnus Angustifolia. It has yellow flowers and yellow fruit.

The Russian Olive is Elaeagnus Angustifolia according to henriettes herbal:
Elaeagnus angustifolia Linn. Elaeagnaceae. Oleaster. Wild Olive.

Europe and northern Asia. The wild olive is a tree mainly cultivated for its fruit, which, in general, is acid and eatable. In Greece, it is sweetish-acid and mealy when ripe. The fruit is commonly sold in the markets of Constantinople. It abounds in a dry, mealy, saccharine substance which is sweet and pleasant. The fruit is eaten in Nepal; it is cultivated in Thibet; and in Persia appears as dessert under the name of zinzeyd. A spirit is distilled from the fruit in Yarkand.

Elaeagnus angustifolia

I have read elsewhere that it is a very high source of lycopene, but can't remember which book I read it. However, I just found a site stating it contains lycopene. Lycopene is a very high antioxidant and is good for fighting free radicals in the body.

Elaeagnus angustifolia
Elaeagnus angustifolia
Family:Elaeagnus angustifolia; Cancer; Febrifuge; Pectoral.
Common name:Oleaster
The oil from the seeds is used with syrup as an electuary in the treatment of catarrh and bronchial affections. The juice of the flowers has been used in the treatment of malignant fevers. The fruit of many members of this genus is a very rich source of vitamins and minerals especially in vitamins A C and E flavanoids and other bio-active compounds. It is also a fairly good source of essential fatty acids which is fairly unusual for a fruit. It is being investigated as a food that is capable of reducing the incidence of cancer and also as a means of halting or reversing the growth of cancers.

The wild olive tree (also called cotinon or the Ethiopian

olive tree) has leaves of an astringent nature which

— pounded into small pieces and so applied — are able to

restrain erysipela [streptococcal skin infection], shingles

[herpes], epinyctis [pustules which appear only at night],

carbuncles [malignant tumours], gangrenous ulceration,

hangnails and whitlows; and (applied with honey) to

take away scabs. They clean foul ulcers and dispel pain

and inflammation. Applied with honey they retain skin

that was torn on the head. They also heal ulcers in the

mouth and apthae [thrush in children or candidiasis]

when chewed. Their juice and a decoction of them does

the same. The juice applied stops eruption of the blood,

the flows of women, staphylomata [inflammatory

protrusion of the cornea] in the eyes, and pustules [pus

under skin], as well as ulcers and old dripping fluids. As a

result put into eye salves they are good for ulcers of the

eyelids. To extract the juice you must beat the leaves into

small pieces and pour in wine or water, then strain it out,

and having dried it in the sun, make it up into little balls.

That which is strained out with wine is far stronger and

fitter to be kept in store than that which is strained out

with water. It is good for ulcerous ears that are full of

discharges. The leaves smeared on with barley meal are

good for coeliac [intestinal complaints]. The leaves (and

this serves instead of spodium, calcined powder) are burnt

together with the flowers in an unfired clay jar the mouth

of which must be well sealed until the jar is thoroughly

baked. Afterwards they are quenched with wine, then

kneaded together again with wine and burnt in the same

way. Afterwards they are washed like cerussa [white lead

ore] and made up into balls. It seems that burnt like this it

comes nothing short of spodium [calcined powder] for eye

medicines; as a result it is to be considered of equal

Brooks, Mai Nguyen M.D. Extracted properties from the Russian Olive to kill cancer. His United States Patent Application number for it is 20070299046 on December 27, 2007. He is applying for the use of it on all types of cancer.

Other patents are applied for also, one of them is IMMUNOTHERAPY OF POLLEN ALLERGY

The Russian olive is not a true olive. It is allegedly the tree referred to in the Bible (Isaiah 41:19) as an "oil" tree. The terms "oil", "olive" and Elaeagnus all come from the Greek word for olive,ela’a (olives were the only source of oil in ancient Mediterranea). The scarcer trebizond date (E. orientalis) is similar to the Russian olive, but the flowers even more fragrant; it is said that long ago in Persia, the fragrance affected the passions of women so strongly, their husbands had to lock them up. Perhaps the more available species of Elaeagnus could have a similar effect--be the first on your block to find out!
