Spices and herbs are prominent in Scripture and in the Middle Eastern diets. The extremely durable hardwood of the local olive tree makes this item a perfect tool for grinding fresh spices and herbs. Therefore it is a very pratical addition to your kitchen accessory.

Olive wood is known for its durability. Also the wood is coupled with the beautiful, characteristic natural inclusions that feature so prominently through the grain. Therefore, it’s not hard to see why it’s such a popular material for kitchenware and thus a perfect gift.

Most woods are unsuitable for the use as kitchen utensils due to the problems posed by food becoming trapped in the grain. However, that’s not the case with Olive wood!  Boasting a finer grain in comparison to other woods, olive wood bears a higher concentration of natural oils. This (once dried) create a resin-like seal when the wood is cut.
