Zatoun olive oil is both an exceptional product and project. We have used the olive oil for our PCRF (Palestine Children’s Relief Fund) fundraisers for years and have also sold them at our church (Silverside Church Wilmington DE).

This delightful personal story of Dima Seelawi, a young American woman of Palestinian background and her relationship with olive oil.  Imagine the same glorious oil in a beautiful glass bottle with the name Zatoun on it.

This is a short story from a childhood in Palestine. We can relive the simple, pastoral and distinctly Palestinian village life through the tastes, smells and sights of olive trees and their gifts.
