The name is taken from the place we were born. A small mountain village in Ilia, with rich history and natural beauty. We grew up with with the taste of our home made extra virgin oil spread on top of a hot slice of bread directly from the stone oven.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Since ancient times the use of olive oil in the diet was crucial for health maintenance. It’s a miraculous source of nutrients and the secret of longevity for Mediterranean people.
Our extra virgin olive oil belongs to the Koroneiki variety and is produced from privately owned olive trees in the Nea Figalia region, a mountainous village in the Peloponnese near the Temple of Apollo Epicurus. Great emphasis is placed on proper cultivation and harvesting practices of the fruit.  Particular attention is given to the oil extraction process, which uses low pressing temperatures. Storage both before and after packaging is carried out in accordance with appropriate methods in order to maintain the oil’s high quality and organoleptic characteristics.
The unique beneficial components of extra virgin olive oil make it ideal for a correct, balanced and nutrient rich diet. The ideal way to realize the full aroma and flavor of olive oil and to keep its nutrients intact is to consume it raw. Olive oil should be added in the last minutes of food preparation.  It is ideal for frying due to the high content of monounsaturated fatty acids, which do not degrade at high temperature.
Olive oil also has many uses as a cosmetic, making it a unique beauty elixir. 
  • Use as facial cleanser or makeup remover. Wipe the entire face with a few drops of olive oil on a cotton ball and rinse with lukewarm water using a foam soap based on oil of chamomile. This is a complete face cleaning.
  • Gently massage the face until the oil is completely absorbed by the skin. After one hour, rinse with water and a foaming olive oil soap. The more you apply it during the week, the better results you get. Useful for all ages and all skin types, and effective against wrinkles.
  • Olive oil, due to its vitamin E content, improves blood circulation, helps to regenerate damaged nails, and accelerates their growth. Massage nails gently using warm olive oil on cotton ball for 5-10 minutes before sleep.
  • Massage your scalp gently with olive oil before shampooing, working out to the edges of your hair. Leave it for at least half an hour. For better results, wrap in a warm towel. Apply at least once a week to restore shine to dull and dry hair.
Tips
Store olive oil in a cool and dry place, making sure it is tightly closed to avoid contact with oxygen as much as possible.  Either glass or an airtight stainless steel container would be ideal

Sage

Description

Sage is a bushy perennial, located in all regions of Greece, but mainly in dry and rocky places. It has been known since ancient times and its botanical name “salvia officinalis” is derived from the Latin word "salvare" which means "to heal".  Sage has been called “the herb of longevity". It has a strong aromatic smell and is cultivated for its medicinal properties.  It can be used in beverages but also as a condiment, as in recent years in our kitchen. It is suitable to drink, for use in a marinade or to accompany meats (e.g., pork or chicken).  It is also used for flavoring broths or other foods. 

Health benefits and healing properties

  • The main reason that the body ages faster than it should is inflammation at the cellular level. Sage is one of the best natural anti-aging herbs, with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant actions.  It can moisturize and rejuvenate the skin, enhancing cellular oxygenation. It is rich in calcium and vitamin D, necessary for everyday cell regeneration, thus preventing the appearance of facial wrinkles.
  • Sage oil also has beneficial effects on the hair, preventing premature grayness, encouraging healthy development and minimizing loss.
  • It is also useful for regulating the menstrual cycle, and relieving the symptoms of menopause. Sage reduces night sweats.
  • It is an antipyretic

Recipes and Uses

Sage can be used as a decoction if you leave it in boiling water for 5-10 minutes.  You will need about 10-20 gr. of dried herb in 1 liter of water. Optionally, you can add honey or lemon in a hot drink containing sage, for rich aroma and taste.   

Alternatively, sage leaves can be used in the kitchen, fresh or dried, to give flavor to many dishes (meat - fish), roasted or cooked. Lightly fried in melted butter, sage makes an excellent garnish for stuffed pasta. Use sage as a condiment for your tomato sauce or to create delicious aromatic vinegars. Build a refreshing salad of sage leaves, peppers, cucumbers, onions and yogurt.

Precautions

Sage should not be consumed by people with hypertension or renal insufficiency. It is recommended that sage not be consumed continuously for longer than two weeks. You should avoid excessive consumption during pregnancy and the herb may also reduce milk production in nursing mothers.  Large amounts of sage could cause toxic effects.

Tips

According to herbalists you can consume up to three cups of sage tea per day (morning, noon, and evening before a meal).  Keep protected from light and moisture, and at room temperature.

Dittany

Description

Dittany or “errontas” (Origanum dictamnus) is a rare herb that grows on the slopes and in the ravines of Crete and is widely used today to flavor food and as a beverage with therapeutic properties.  In ancient times and in the Middle Ages its use was particularly widespread for various medical conditions. Hippocrates used it for stomach ailments, gastrointestinal problems, arthritis, as a healing or antispasmodic tonic, and as an ingredient in herbal mixtures for the treatment of any disease. 

Health benefits and healing properties

  • The main component of the essential oil of Dittany is carvacrol, and studies have shown that this ingredient has strong antioxidant, antiseptic, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory activities.
  • The traditional use of this herb also includes the treatment of headache, neurological uses, the soothing of stomach pains, for halitosis (whence the name 'stomatochorto'), but also as a haemostatic agent for wounds, aiding in the prevention of infection. 

Recipes and Uses

We use it as a beverage by adding 5 - 10 grams to 1 liter of boiling water and steeping for about 10 minutes. Allow to cool and filter before use. Be sure not to consume more than 2 cups a day.  It can be used in food, salads and sauces or spreads.  In a glass jar pour a cup of extra virgin olive oil and add three to four sprigs of fresh or dry dittany. Keep in a cool, dark place for about three weeks, then filter and it is ready for use. 

Precautions

Because the herb is found in such a limited geographic area and is not widely known, there are no surveys of side effects using large population samples. So there limited data reported in the literature regarding possible side effects.  Traditional uses are considered safe. Not recommended for use by pregnant or nursing women, or for children. 

Tips

As with all herbs with healing properties, dittany should be used with caution and moderation, avoiding the risk of overuse leading to toxicity.  Keep protected from light and moisture, and at room temperature.

Chamomile

Description

Chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla) owes its name to its aroma (coming from the Greek for 'earth' and 'apple'), and its medicinal properties have been known since ancient times. It contains many beneficial herbal ingredients and minerals.

Health benefits and healing properties

  • Chamomile can calm the nerves and relieve emotional distress, and is used for the relief of insomnia and nervous tension. It is also known for its natural anxiolytic properties, for aiding in relaxation, and has been used in the treatment of GAD (Generalised Anxiety Disorder). Drinking a little chamomile decoction will relieve headaches, including migraines. 
  • It has antipyretic and antiallergic properties, stimulates the immune system, and is the most natural painkiller in rheumatic pains and cases of cystitis.
  • Constipation-Diarrhea: A glass of chamomile helps to fight this problem. It calms the stomach and helps to replenish lost fluids.

Recipes and Uses

Put one tablespoon of chamomile in 150g. boiling water and steep for 15 minutes. Strain and drink with honey (optional). 

External use: An infusion of chamomile can help in cleaning and healing the skin. If you have puffy or stinging eyes, dip a cotton ball into boiled and cooled chamomile and place over the eyes. 

Precautions

Limit use to 3-4 times a day.  People who are allergic to daisies or chrysanthemums may also be allergic to chamomile and for this reason should avoid it.  Not recommended for use in patients with asthma and iron deficiency. Caution is indicated for individuals taking antidepressants, sedatives, or hypnotics. Excessive consumption of chamomile should be avoided by pregnant women and nursing mothers.

Tips
