Laconia is located in the southern end of Greece’s mainland of ancient Spartans. Olive groves situated in that area have a history that dates back to ancient times. Located between the Taygetos and Parnonas mountainsides and the rocky land of Mani the location is best described by its plentiful sunshine and little rain. This formation is the ideal for the prosperity and the finest taste of the olive fruit.
Kreenes Brand olive oil had a prominent place in the lives of people in Laconia because of its excellent nutritional facts as well as its profitable market value. It was used as medicine or in the cosmetics field due to its beneficial qualities. Ancient Spartans would rub themselves with olive oil to rejuvenate their bodies. Their wives used it as a hair conditioner, to moisturize their skin and to massage the bodies of newborn children.
