Fab Find: McEvoy Ranch 80 Acres Lavender Olive Oil Body Balm


Inspired by the Tuscan Countryside…

In Northern California, there’s this amazing 550 acre ranch where beautiful olive oil is made. Olive oil from Northern California? Sounds odd, doesn’t it? But it’s true. At McEvoy Ranch in Petaluma, California, founder Nan McEvoy brought in experts and imported 1,000 seedlings from Tuscany, and boom! Fantastic, artisanally created olive oil from Marin County was born.

It was hard work, I’m sure—but so worth the reward, because they’re now producing six varieties of rich, certified organic olive oil. Some of which, goes into their 80 Acres line of bath and bodycare products. I’m enjoying trying the products out, but one immediately stuck out like a sore thumb as a Fab Find; meet the 80 Acres Lavender Olive Oil Body Balm

80 Acres Lavender Olive Oil Body Balm

This gorgeous, hand-crafted balm is 97% organically-sourced, and is comprised of an olive oil base that is 81% of the entire formula. This makes the dense balm immediately break down as body heat warms it, melding into a soothing blend of oils that nurture and intensively hydrate the skin. This blend of olive oil, jojoba oil, beeswax, and Vitamin E is rich in antioxidants, and is handcrafted from only the purest ingredients. The aromatic notes of lavender really sing in this product, in which I was surprised to learn is also harvested on the hillsides of McEvoy Ranch. They’re really utilizing every resource up there, and it sounds so beautiful—I’d love to visit! 

I highly recommend this balm! I’ve been using it at night—on my cuticles, hands, arms, and legs, and I absolutely love it. I recommend using this at night since it has such a high olive oil content, it’s very rich and a little goes a very long way. If lavender isn’t your favorite scent, they also handcraft a delicious blood orange fragrance from the citrus and jasmine grown on the ranch, in addition to their signature scent, Verde. Both of which are also available in the Olive Oil Body Balm.
