Live Oil by Lesna is a family owned and operated oil mill providing the finest organic cold-pressed oils in wooden press-barrels to our loyal consumers. The idea of producing organic oils came from numerous failed attempts to find the real, pure and delicious oils in today’s markets. My husband and I understand how oil can play such an important role for our cellular health and has been something we’ve always implemented into our daily diets for our family. Only live oil extracted in a natural way from clean technology can serve as the best natural medicine and improve us from the inside out.
After our first child was born, we effortlessly sought out these “live” oils with no such luck. As a result, my husband set up a unique technique in our garage and crushed nuts and seeds into what we called “liquid gold” which we became obsessed with. What started as a creative attempt in our garage to provide healthy organic oils for our family of four turned into a small production facility in Northbrook, IL. We knew in our hearts we needed to share our oils with others so they could experience the health advantages it carries and even more importantly, indulge in the culinary benefits as we do.
