Why use Olivewood?
Olivewood is extremely hardy and non-porous. This makes it resistant to bacteria and very versatile to use. The main reason we picked olivewood for our accessories, is because it is truly sustainable and makes a perfect tool to create beauty recipes without altering the pH of your ingredients.
How is it made?
Each olivewood spoon is made by Katari artisans in the Mediterranean Tunisia. Each is finished by hand, which takes a while to shape, polish and treat with olive oil for beautiful shine and olivewood pattern. Variations in sizes and shapes are natural due to the process. Wood patterns are also varied due to uniqueness of each piece of wood used.
Size: ~3.5" / 9-10 cm (sizes and shapes vary slightly due to handmade nature)
Material: olivewood from mature, non producing trees
Uses: feed babies, measure and mix beauty recipes, mix beverages without oxidizing them
Benefits: olivewood is neutral to ingredients and will not oxidize your products, the wood is hardy and will not splinter or swell in the water. Non-porous nature of olivewood makes it resistant to bacteria
Tips: preferably hand wash; to restore shine - polish with olive oil
Olivewood accessories are sustainable!
Olive trees produce fruit (olives) only for a few decades. Then, new trees are planted near old ones and old trees find new live in gorgous accessories you can enjoy for many years.
