Extra virgin olive oil belongs in your skincare, not only your kitchen. Today we talk with one half of Wonder Valley, Alison Carroll. Alison and her husband Jay decided to start their line of deep orange and yellow golden hued oils after Alison’s time spent at the California Olive Oil Council where she picked up several mentors in the field along the way. The hero ingredient throughout their gorgeous line is their own olive oil.
Alison splits her time between the high & dry Joshua Tree desert and humid sea salt filled Maine. Olive oil is her mainstay of a healthful diet & radiant skin between these two spots. No matter your climate, olive oil is here for you.
