One of our favorite things... Ensenada Olive Oil Co.

One of our favorite things... Ensenada Olive Oil Co.:

Way back before I was one half of Meow Meow Tweet… heck, long before I even thought about soap or skin care… I cooked food at The Linkery restaurant; owned and operated by my friend Jay Porter. It was the last restaurant I ever worked in before I left California for grad school in Michigan. My experience there served as a spring board for MMT, and the inspired approach we take to making soap and skin care with recognizable, honest, and whole ingredients. 


Jay has a new love project called the Ensenada Olive Oil Company; small batch, single orchard olive oil from Ensenada, Mexico. I’ve been romancing a bottle from Lot #1, a barrel that Jay personally picked up and drove over the border in his car. Thereafter, he bottled and labeled the oil in San Diego.

The oil is so simply pure, with faint notes of citrus and pepper, I could literally drink it straight out of the bottle. Not only that, but there is no reducer spout, so use your finger to stop the pour if you’re aiming to drizzle- and of course, you should then rub your oily finger over your face, elbows, and hair to moisturize. Olive oil has vitamin E and oleic acid, which promotes elasticity and softens the skin. What’s good for the inside…
