ΗEALTHY COOKING: First of all, you can use olive oil for all your everyday cooking. We have taken the time to select some of the most delicious food recipes from Greece and from all over the Mediterranean to propose to you. Just click on the “Recipes” (LINK ΣΤΗ ΣΕΛΙΔΑ Recipes > Recipes from the island of Crete) section of our website.
Does the Mediterranean diet seem too exotic for you?
Would you rather seek recipes to suit your favourite foods or your personal dietary patterns?
No problem! There are customised recipes available to fit your taste. You may also look out for them in our “recipes” section.
HEALTHY SKIN: Olive oil has been used for centuries for personal care purposes. It is a great skin moisturizer, partly due to its high linoleic acid content. You can apply it directly as a moisturiser or add a bit of olive oil in a warm bath. Studies also show that it is good for your skin even by consuming it in your food. The antioxidants contained in olive oil have been found to neutralise free radicals that lead to skin aging and skin cancer.
Another daily practical use for men is the natural lubrication that it provides for a close shave. You can use it as a soothing aftershave.
Also, it can also be used by both men and women to sooth chapped lips.
Finally, ladies may use it during or after pregnancy as a natural solution to reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
HEALTHY HAIR: Olive oil is also helpful to treat tangled and damaged hair. Tangled hair may be tamed by combing using a little bit of olive oil to moisturise your locks. To provide relief for your damaged hair, just knead a couple of tablespoons of olive oil into your scalp and hair. Swathe your oil-up hair with a shower cap and wait for thirty minutes. Then continue by shampooing as usual.
Just add a little bit of olive oil in pets’ food to promote a shiny skin
healthy coat, without hairballs. Your pets will love it!
EASE SNORING: Taking a sip of olive oil before going to bed can help lubricate your throat muscles, cutting down on snoring.
REMOVE MAKEUP: Dab a small amount to olive oil on a cotton ball or pad. Olive oil will remove makeup just as well as many commercial brands.
POLISH FURNITURE AND METAL ITEMS: Silverware, copper and other metal items can be polished using toothpaste. After you are done, rub a little olive oil to prevent streaks, corrosion and tarnish. You may also use two parts of olive oil and one part of lemon juice to polish your desk. Pour just a few drops on a soft cloth, wipe away the dust, scuffs and fingerprints, and make your desk shine.
FIX SQUEAKY DOORS: Olive oil is the most ecological lubricant for fixing squeaky doors, hinges, etc. It works just as well, avoiding using other hydrocarbon-based lubricants that harm the environment.
Please store Creterra bottles away from light and heat. The worst possible places would be next to a stove, on top of a refrigerator or on a window sill. On the other hand, a dark cupboard or a cool basement would be ideal to store unopened bottles till the end of their ‘best before’ date. Once the packaging is opened, try to use as soon as possible, at best up to a couple of months later.
Don’t forget that we also sell in tin cans (look our for our OLIVO,5 canisters available from 500ml, 1lt, 3lt and 5lt), which do a great job protecting our products against the light. However, the general storage conditions mentioned above, are not different for this packaging medium.
A good idea is the tube of OLIVO,3, which does the job of the tin can while you are not losing out on the elegance of the bottle. If you bought it as a treat for yourself or someone brought it to you as a gift, please consider keeping the tube till the end of the product’s use. It’s worth it!
Creterra products are available through selected retail networks that specialise in quality Mediterranean or ethnic products, shops for organic/ecological/natural products and high quality suppliers of the food service/catering market. You can also find them in small, carefully selected chains of super market retailers.
Our network is constantly expanding and you will soon be able to find our products in a store near you. If interested, please contact us and we will inform you on our nearest partner. Please use the relevant contact form.

Koroneiki olive variety is one of the best olive oil producing olive varieties of Greece. The oil that comes from this olive carries intense aroma of the fresh fruit and rich and distinctive flavour. It is also rich in valuable ingredients that protect the heart and are good for us. Koroneiki is mainly cultivated in Crete and the region of Messinia.
We have selected a particular area from the island of Crete, close to the city of Heraklion, which year-on-year delivers consistently high quality olive oil in sufficient volumes to satisfy our clients. The favourable climatic conditions of Crete, its rich in minerals soil in conjunction with the supreme olive variety Koroneiki that the skilful farmers cultivate for centuries, deliver an olive oil of excellent quality and unique organoleptic characteristics.
Acidity corresponds to the concentration of free fatty acids in olive oil. It is a chemical parameter of the oil which is a very broad indicator of its quality, or at least how sound the olives were and how carefully the olives were processed. For extra virgin olive oils, it ranges from 0 to 0.8%, with the lower the percentage the better. Oils with high free fatty acidity also tend to go rancid more rapidly. However, regardless of the acidity of the oil, it can.t be tasted as the acids in olive oil are very weak acids.
