BRENDA & JOEY REA
OliveSpa was created to use olive oil in a different way. Olive oil has been used for centuries as a remedy for dry skin, and as an anti-aging skin serum. At OliveSpa, we make natural, clean skin care products using a base of extra virgin olive oil from the olive trees grown, harvested and milled right here at Queen Creek Olive Mill.
Brenda Rea is trained as a Professional Olive Oil Sommelier. She has also been studying aromatherapy for the past 20 years and continues her learning through supplimental educational programs.
Joey Rea is trained and certified in western herbalism and yoga. She is a certified health coach and has been studying and using aromatherapy for 8 years.
COOPERATION & COLLABORATION
As the Co-Founder of Queen Creek Olive Mill with husband, Perry Rea, Brenda Rea uses their own extra virgin olive oil to formulate her all-natural skin care products. These include soaps, balms and body oils, and has expanded to include men's and baby's products, as well as specialized face care products.
In 1997 Perry and Brenda Rea packed up their 4 young children (and one on the way), and moved from Michigan, all the way across the country, to realize their dream of making olive oil in the Arizona desert.
As the mother of 5, Brenda Rea was always concerned with keeping her children healthy and happy. When sensitive skin and dry Arizona days left some of her kids with mild eczema, she researched natural dry skin remedies and discovered that olive oil was the answer.
OliveSpa’s products are handcrafted in small batches with unrefined, fair trade, cruelty-free, and raw ingredients. With a working olive farm in our back yard and our studio right on the farm at the Queen Creek Olive Mill, we are fortunate to use the freshest, high polyphenol extra virgin olive oil possible.
