Olive oil was discovered centuries ago, in Egypt, and in Syria, then spread across the Mediterranean. It was first used to anoint kings, then used for its health benefits to the skin and hair, which for many, resembled a “youth elixir”. In a lot of instances in the modern age Olive Oil has been referred to as “Green Gold”.
Iksir was created to glorify the experience of oil tasting, with a design that takes inspiration from Alchemy tools, and puts the oil in a glass pedestal to show its importance, with a delicate glass pipette that works by trapping the oil inside in one simple gesture.
