  • Just Slate Rustic Pestle and Mortar

    Because of the natural oils in olive wood, Naturally Med’s Mortar and Pestle set is ideal for grinding spices, puréeing garlic with salt and creating your own salt blends – and you don’t need to worry about residual flavours seeping into the wood to taint a future mix, or stains from strongly-coloured items.

    Carved from a single, heavy block of wood, it’s a satisfyingly weighty mortar with a strong, round-ended pestle to match.

    Please note: depending on the preference of the craftsman who carved it, your mortar may retain an element of bark around the rustic rim.

    About Naturally Med Olive Wood

    ‘Bringing the Mediterranean to you’, Naturally Med offers a range of olive wood utensils and serveware expertly handcrafted in Southern Tunisia from branches that fall or are pruned from productive olive trees. Patterned by the natural grain and rich colouring of the wood they were cut from, and carved to best suit the unique pieces each craftsman starts with, no two items are ever the same – so you can rest assured that yours will be one of a kind.

    Being a very hard wood, olive is naturally highly durable, with a high oil content that prevents it from absorbing colour or flavours from foods and resistant to bacteria.

    All Naturally Med products are made from sustainably sourced wood and ethically produced.

    "Not great"

    The photos on the website make this item look very luxurious and perfect to give as a gift. Unfortunately when it arrived it was a lot smaller than expected and it didn't come with the black ribbon holding the items together. To be honest I was quite embarrassed giving it as a gift. I asked the recipient how they feel about the item and they said it's good at doing the basics however it does leave a lingering smell of the ingredients even after being washed. Also the pestle and mortar does stain even though in the description it says it doesn't. Unfortunately I wouldn't recommend .

    A note from the team

    Thank you for placing your review. We're sorry that the pestle and mortar set doesn't meet your expectations. We've been in touch with the suppliers who've advised that wiping it down with lemon juice will help with the smell and staining.
