A letter from our founder...
Hi everyone! I'm Amanda Nova, founder of Olive + Grayce Apothecary and I wanted to drop by and give you all the scoop on O+G.
So here's the deal...
Olive + Grayce is named after my grandparents from Italy, who lived in a simpler time when food herbs and home remedies were used as treatment. They didn’t go to the doctor, they went to their garden first. Rose water for healing skin, aloe for rashes, garlic and ginger for a cold. Need to lose a few pounds? Drink Vinegar. It was simple.
Today, not so much.
We are in a time of medicating every single ailment with prescription drugs from our skin to our pain to our anxiety, and a lot of these solutions causing more issues and a vicious cycle. I was a patient of this philosophy but after several years of chronic back pain, failed procedures, chronic illness and anxiety, not to mention the reaction I had to the prescriptions that were thrown at these issues by Western doctors, I had had enough.
As a holistic health practitioner, herbalist and clinical nutritionist, I have always been interested in health, but I never realized how food and herbs could save my life until I reached that breaking point.
Desperate for something to treat my pain that didn’t end in “oid,” I started studying herbs ranging from adaptogenic herbs to Ayurvedic herbs and Traditional Chinese Medicine herbs to botany. I began to create my own remedies for my skin, body and mind. And now, I am sharing them with the world!
Olive+Grayce is a natural line of wellness and herbal remedies that is bringing old beliefs into this century. It is your grandmother’s garden meets your Sunday brunch. Feeling good should, well, feel good! All of my products are hand-crafted with curated natural ingredients for the best possible experience while using them. Self-care is a buzzy phrase, but it is as simple as an oil massage at night made with quality ingredients. It's about what works for YOU and fits into YOUR life!
I hope you enjoy my products as much as I enjoy making them!
P.S I know we just met but, if you are here I already know you are my kind of people so leave me a line or a review if you love the products, because trust, they will love you right back!
