Every great story has a beginning, and ours starts with Nan McEvoy and her search for a “wonderful place in the country”. On her quest for a place where her grandchildren could fully experience the beauty of Northern California, she fell in love with a sprawling 550 acres in Petaluma, previously a dairy farm and strictly zoned for agriculture.
Inspired by her love of Tuscan olive oil and The Feast of the Olive by Maggie Klein (a book given to her by her son, Nion), she met with one of Italy’s foremost experts on the subject, Maurizio Castelli. Three days later he was on the ranch (or so the story goes…). Despite the obvious challenges involved in producing olive oil in Marin County, and against the advice of many, Nan imported 1000 seedlings from Tuscany. Her renegade decision-making has been a boon and a benefit to all those who have discovered the ranch and its abundance.
I was able to try the Blood Orange Body Balm;
This sensuous blend of olive and jojoba oils, beeswax and vitamin E is rich in natural antioxidants and is easily absorbed into the skin to deeply nourish and protect. Handcrafted from the purest botanical ingredients, some variation in color and visual consistency may occur.
Made with 97% certified organic ingredients. Olive oil content is 81%.
I have a really bad dry patch on my left elbow, I ABSOLUTELY hate it. So I’m always trying to find a product that will take it away. It goes away and then comes back so I try to find a product that works. There was only 1 thing before that worked and for the life of me I can’t remember the name of it but know I had tried it at BlogHer 10 as a free sample, so if I can’t remember the name of it, obviously I can’t get it again. Since then, nothing I have tried has worked at all. I can put lotion on it all day and still nothing. I tried the 80 Acres Blood Orange Body Balm and it worked awesome. Within a couple days it has totally smoothed out. It also really helps your dry skin. With the weather constantly changing it’s doing a number on my skin. However, using the Blood Orange Body Balm my skin feels wonderful!
