    Did you know?

    Did you know that olive oil should be kept in a dark bottle? This will protect it from sunlight, which over time can turn the oil rancid. This not only destroys the all-important antioxidants; it can also trigger harmful free radicals that contribute to cell damage.

    Geography.

    Made in the Grampians, Victoria.

    Hot tip.

    This magic stuff can be used to remove eye makeup, or as an ingredient in homemade lip balms, face masks, hair treatments, moisturisers and heel balms.

    Mount Zero

    As one of the oldest olive groves in Australia, the Mount Zero olive grove has stood the test of time. Located at the base of the Grampians northernmost summit, it’s home to 6000 Spanish Manzanilla and Gordal olive trees. Mount Zero is a family-owned-and-operated business that’s committed to flavour and quality; their values are evident in every olive, every jar. Speaking of commitment, it only harvests using biodynamic farming; a natural, eco-friendly approach to farming that avoids synthetic intervention. The grove is self-sustaining — it feeds the trees directly from the soil humus rather than chemical inputs, and the energy supply is sourced from off-grid wind and solar generators.
