From the ancient estate of Can Solivera come these exceptionally pure and healthy olive oil products. Presented in an elegant box, this is a wonderful gift for the olive oil lover or for you! Two bottles of exquisite extra virgin olive oil are included, as well as two aromatic, healing soaps made from the same fine cold pressed oils.
In the rural Baix-Emporda region of Catalunya, the family owned Can Solivera estate produces some of the finest extra virgin olive oil we have ever tried. Every fall they harvest olives from the lovingly tended trees which are milled on an old fashioned granite wheel, then cold pressed.
This gift box holds two of their finest olive oils. The first is a mild and fruity extra virgin oil pressed from tiny nut-brown Arbequina olives, native to this area of Spain. The second is their wild organic extra virgin olive oil, made from Arbequina and Empeltre olives that were discovered growing wild on the far reaches of the Can Solivera estate. This special olive oil coupage has a bright herbal flavor with a touch of spiciness.
A few years ago the owners decided to create a truly handmade, 100% extra virgin olive oil soap, unlike most olive oil soaps which only have a few drops of extra virgin oil. Each bar of Can Solivera oil soap is cut and wrapped by hand at the estate. The soap became so popular that the owners created a liquid version, which comes in a convenient pump bottle. The gift box includes two rustic bars of this aromatic soap, plus a bottle of the liquid soap.
The soap's bright, refreshing scent comes from essential oils steam-distilled from rosemary leaves, lavender petals and pine needles, plus a squeeze of lemon juice. When you wash away the lather, you will notice a mild sheen of nurturing olive oil will stay on your skin. Unlike modern detergents, Can Solivera soap doesn't strip away moisture, but adds healing oils to make your skin healthy and supple.
Can Solivera uses a cold process of soap making, which preserves vitamins and anti-oxidants. Naturally non-allergenic, Can Solivera olive oil soap has anti-inflammatory qualities which make it especially soothing and healing to sensitive skin.
