Olive wood inherently contains olive oil which can stay in the wood for many years. This may sometimes cause the dishes to 'bleed' when wet. This ‘bleeding' is only olive oil and does not stain bathroom or kitchen surfaces. The oil can also stain some light coloured soaps but this is not harmful, it just needs to be cleaned with a nail brush and left to dry. Please do not allow the soap dish to sit in water - like the soap, it needs to be able to dry out. The wood will lighten with use but if fed with olive oil it will regain its depth of colour.
Made from natural olive wood.
All the olive wood soap dishes are hand carved in Turkey and are a bi product from the Olive industry. Olive trees need to be pruned to produce a good tasty olive with a high yield, and after a certain age the olive tree becomes damaged and unproductive. To keep up with the pace of nature, very old trees have to be replaced with new trees, and the wood from the largest salvageable branches are used to make these soap dishes. Consequently, no olive trees are damaged or destroyed to make this product.
