Grampians Olive Co. Gourmet Gift Packs & Skincare

The Grampians Olive Co. is home to the historic Toscana Olive Plantation and is renowned for producing some of Australia's best and most exquisite organic olive oil. 

Grampians Olive Co. have a philosophy of quality over quantity and undertake every process from tree to bottle with great care.

Their quality processes allow the olives to retain the antioxidants and fullness of flavour that sets their olive oil apart.

This is reflected in the multiple industry awards and accolades they win every year!

They also hand make luxurious and richly moisturising olive oil skincare products. 

An ideal gift for many of us for Valentine's Day would be a relaxing weekend away with our partner in the Grampians enjoying the majestic scenery and visiting the Grampian Olive Co.

However as this isn't possible for a lot of us, the next best gift for the beauty lover would be a gift pack of handmade olive oil skincare products, and for the sweetheart that loves to cook, a gift set of the taste of the Grampians Olive Co.

I was lucky enough to be gifted both a Grampians Olive Co. Skincare Pack and a Picnic Gift Set of Organic Olive Oils, Infused Olive Oils and Artisan Vinegars to review for you.


Grampians Olive Co. Skincare Pack

The Grampians Olive Co. Skincare Pack is handmade with love and includes:
  • Hand & Body Butter 200ml
  • Organic Olive Oil Soap - Unscented &
  • Organic Olive Oil Soap - Lavender.

When I opened the box my Grampians Olive Co. Skincare Pack arrived in the most delightful scent of lavender wafted out of the box instantly embracing me with it's calming aroma.

Lavender oil, in addition to its antioxidant and antibacterial properties, also has wonderful sedative and calming properties.

Using this soap in the bath or shower before bed time is so soothing, helping to reduce the anxieties and emotional stresses of the day and significantly improve your sleep quality!

Thanks to the inclusion of the organic olive oil this soap is also beautifully moisturising and non-drying.

I've loved using it every night since I received it!

Grampians Olive Co. Skincare Pack

The Grampians Olive Co. Hand & Body Butter is made with Grampians organic olive oil and organic shea butter. 

It is luxuriously thick yet absorbs quickly and easily into the skin. 

It leaves the skin feeling soft and moisturised.

According to Grampians Olive Co. this hand & body butter is ideal for people with dry and sensitive skin, psoriasis and/or eczema. 

The Grampians Olive Co. Skincare Pack is priced at $35 and is available for purchase from the Grampians Olive Co. website.

Grampians Olive Co. Picnic 100ml Gift Set

The Grampians Olive Co. Picnic 100ml Gift Set is made up of 6 x 100ml bottles of infused olive oils, organic olive oils and/or vinegars of your choice.

My 6 bottles included the Grampians Olive Co.:

  • Garlic Infused Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Shiraz Organic Vinegar
  • Golden Orange Caramelised Balsamic Finishing Vinegar &

Grampians Olive Co. Picnic Gift Set

This gift set is the perfect Valentine's gift for a food lover, cook or chef!

The saying "A way to a person's heart is through their stomach" is so true! 

Oh Grampians Olive Co. "Olive You"!

The flavours and aromas of these olive oils, infused oils and vinegars are absolutely exquisite!

Ranging from the earthy flavour of truffles, to the zesty taste of lemon to the rich flavour of shiraz.

These oils and vinegars have definitely elevated my home cooking up a couple of notches! 

The flavours of my pastas, salads, fish, meat, stirfries, bruschetta, well you may as well say EVERY DISH I COOK, is so much better with a drizzle of Grampians Olive Co. organic extra virgin olive oil, infused oil or vinegar! 

And it would be remiss of me to not let you know how amazing the Golden Orange Caramelised Balsalmic Vinegar tastes drizzled over strawberries and ice cream! 

Such a simple but sensational dessert!

  1. Interesting about Olive Oils for skin too. I discovered a great lotion that my husband likes to use that is based on olive oil. He loves it.

  14. We've just planted a huge hedge of French lavender and I've been looking at making soap, not realising how complicated and long winded the process is. Might just have to take the easy route and buy it, after seeing this.

    1. This is definitely the easier way to get lavender soap! My daughter made soap in her uni chemistry bridging course but not surprisingly it was no where near as good as the Grampians soap!

  15. Olive this! I have very dry skin from AI disease so I love the idea of olive oil skincare.

  16. I love the picnic gift set! I worry I'm not appreciative enough of food in general to understand / enjoy different types of olive oil.... though realise that's more about my own antipathy towards cooking than actually eating and trying new things.

    1. The different types of olive oil, especially the infused ones have very different flavours. They're an easy way to enhance the flavour of the dishes you cook.

  17. My parents in law used to have a small olive farm many years ago and it was fascinating seeing all the ways they used olive oil.

  18. That skincare pack sounds amazing! Lavender is one of my favourite scents and I love that it's calming.

  19. I love olive oil. I quite often(usually in winter) use a mix of olive oil and sugar to moisturise and exfoliate my hands. When I say exfoliate, it's usually after gardening to help get the dirt off! Divine range of products :)
