This beauty box contains Hand Cream, Body Oil and top quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil from my dear friend Eleonora Calamai’s Tuscan Estate. The wonderful line of olive oil and body care products is from Villa Montearioli, Eleonora’s family-run olive estate. All products are sourced from the finest organic olives and are specially pressed to maintain this miraculous fruit’s natural healthful, moisturizing and protective properties. Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a rich, anti-wrinkle, anti-aging, and antioxidant for all types of skin. The moisturizing comes from the ‘‘fat’’ part of the olive and the protective properties from the olive’s bio-phenols. The Villa Beauty Box is developed without silicones, parabens and coloring agents.
The box includes:
- Body Oil 3.38 oz (100 ml)
- Hand Cream 3.38 oz (100 ml)

About Eleonora Calamai and Villa Monteoriolo
Some of my Discover my Italy clients have met Eleonora on day trips to her villa for an olive oil tasting. Some lucky ones may also know Eleonora from her wonderful cooking classes. Eleonora’s family has been tending the olive groves and making olive oil at Villa Monteoriolo for over 200 years. Situated near Chianti in Tuscany, it is an ideal climate for olive growing. As they always have been, the olives are still picked by hand and pressed the same night they come off the tree. Eleonora wants everyone to know that the Villa Beauty Box is made with the same love and care as her family’s exclusive extra virgin olive oil.
A portion of all proceeds will go to help the "Abbraccia un Bambino" (Hug a Child), a project of the non-profit Caritas organization to sustain children affected by poverty in the town of Pesaro, in Marche region of Italy.
