  2. I went to your Grand Rapids store too. The workers were SO NICE and knowledgeable. The oils that I sampled were so good. And today I just sent my parents a Christmas gift. :O)

  3. Happy to have you in Grand Rapids! The guys were very personable, and took the time to explain all your products, sampling as we went! We made some purchases and look forward to returning very soon! I am introducing you to everyone I know! Also happy with the fabulous, fresh, Tea’s available, and the fact that we can see and smell them, as a customer, instead of storing behind the counter in big tins!!

  4. I am a true testimony of the sea mist lotion from the olive store. The lotion is very emollient and soothing and smells very good. This is one of my favorite body delights. laurel park place location
