The meaning behind our name
Elaia means olive tree, which is known all throughout the world as a sacred tree. Olive leaf was first used medicinally in Ancient Egypt and was a symbol of heavenly power. Olive leaves are astringent, antiseptic and they have valuable healing properties. The olive branch interlaced in our logo is a symbol of abundance, glory, wisdom, fertility, power, purity and peace.
