Olive oil as barrier?

I am using Olive oil as my current barrier for ants. As fluon was a bit pricey and bby powder&alcohol didn't seem like a good option. But after applying it I saw my queens repeatedly cleaning themselves and pushing their mandibles down to the ground(Ectomomyrmex javanus)
Are they safe for ants?
If not, what can I substitute with? (I just want to know if it works)

Thank you
