Olive oil will go rancid in the heat and sun, and make a saddle smell pretty bad (have seen that one first hand). It can also stain leather if not applied correctly. There are many other better products on the market to use.

A bottle of Leather New was about $10, but an equivalent amount of Olive Oil is going to be much higher (possibly double).

Bee Natural has a line of products made for leather. My sister the saddlemaker swears by it!

It's the little things that drive me wild...
