our olive oil is made from a mixture of varieties native to our region along the coast; belica, štorta, grignan and the italian leccino. grown on the hills around our home, traditionally harvested and cold-pressed for the highest quality, and lovingly infused with herbs from the garden - making beautiful, potent medicines and sharing the rich, distinct taste of istria. 

herbal massage unwinds both mind and body. making space in the day to restore our energy and honor the bodies that carry us. releasing held tension, lowering blood pressure & heart rate, increasing circulation, relieving inflammation, and soothing aches and pains. daily body massage promotes more restful sleep and empowers the immune system.

olive oil has been used for centuries in body and hair care. rich in vitamins & antioxidants, nourishing and strengthening tissue while creating a protective barrier over the surface; sinking deeply into the inner layers, helping retain hydration, balance discoloration, support collagen & elastin levels, heal minor wounds, burns, and scars.
