Olives have always been integral to the Holy Land. So much so that the Bible describes the Promised Land as `a land of olive trees and honey.’

The Holy Land’s olive oil was used in the Temple, used to annoint kings, used as a healing balm, used for illumination, and of course, savored for its luscious flavor as part of a meal or on its own as a delicious gift from the land.

In the Bible, following the flood the dove returns to Noah with an olive leaf, symbolizing peace and hope for renewal.

Olive oil is good for you! According to studies as little as 50 grams of olive oil a day can have a positive effect on LDL – the ‘bad’ cholesterol.

Our olive trees are planted on the fertile slopes of the Valley of Sorek in Israel. The Valley of Sorek in the Biblical times bordered between the Philistines and the Hebrew tribe of Dan. This was the region of Samson. North of the valley there is a spring called En Hakkore. According to the Book of Judges after one of his triumphs over the Philistines Samson was about to die of thirst and he called upon the Lord and a spring emerged from the ground.

Then God opened up the hollow place in Lehi, and water came out of it. When Samson drank, his strength returned and he revived. So the spring was called En Hakkore

Judges 15:19
an ancient olive press in the Holy Land

Holive oil is made from Barnea Olives, a premium olive variety named for the Kadesh Barnea region in which it was found, on the border between the Sinai Desert and Israel

Then, as the LORD our God commanded us, we set out from Horeb and went toward the hill country of the Amorites through all that vast and dreadful desert that you have seen, and so we reached Kadesh Barnea.

Deuteronomy 1:19

Much as in ancient times, today Holive oil’s Holy Land olives are lovingly tended, gathered, and pressed into the purest of oils.

And thou shall command the children of Israel that they bring unto you pure olive oil beaten for lighting to make a light shine out continuously.

Exodus 27:20

Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brothers; and the Spirit of The Lord came mightily upon David from that day forward

1 Samuel 16:13

Holive - Aceite de oliva virgen extra de primera prensa de Tierra Santa, 30.4 onzas: Best EVER Easily the best olive oil I've ever eaten. It has a better texture and flavor than the commercial junk at the grocery stores, even the pricier brands. I hadn't realized that the olive oil I'd been getting was a lil sticky feeling until I tried Holive Oil. Now I'm ruined LOL not going back!! <3

Holive - Aceite de oliva virgen extra de primera prensa de Tierra Santa, 30.4 onzas: We are very pleased with this olive oil We are very pleased with this olive oil. It isn't thick and oily like olive oil we purchase from a box store. It's just right and doesn't have a strong olive smell. We use it to cook, but also apply it daily to our face/neck after a shower--wrinkles lessen and the skin absorbs it well without leaving an extra oily sheen. We will continue to invest our money in this product.
