History

In the Eastern Peloponnese, the use of olive oil was known from the 4th millennium BC. In addition to being a precious food item, olive oil was to the ancient inhabitants of the region a daily ingredient of health and beauty. Diseases such as fever, fatigue, wounds, poisoning and insect bites were treated by olive oil preparations. The skin would be softer by rubbing the body with oil after a bath and the teeth whiter by washing the mouth with olive oil.

Especially in Ancient Corinth, at the time of its prosperity, the preparation of fragrance oils flourished.

Honouring the area's history, "House of Olive" has included among its products extra virgin olive oils flavoured with citrus and herbs of the region.
