Raw Olive was born out of a desire to find affordable, pure, bath and beauty products for myself and my 3 girls. I was shocked to learn that a lot of the “natural” products offered at health food stores still included potentially harmful ingredients such as parabens, sodium laurel sulfate, and petroleum.
Considering that 80% of what you put on your body ends up in your body, food grade ingredients make sense. I started experimenting in my kitchen with natural ingredients such as extra virgin olive oil, organic raw sugar and raw honey, to name a few. Soon enough, friends and family were hooked on some of my yummy creations.
Raw Olive has become a perfect marriage between my love for cooking and all things natural.
The creative process is what I enjoy most. With three girls, I am constantly trying to create products that I feel comfortable with them using. Once I have an idea, I experiment in the kitchen until I’m happy with the final product. Once complete, I test the new product on my family and audacious friends and hope it’s a hit.
