Our story and the Oleavicin Advantage




Our Story


Oleavicin was created by founder's Craig and Cindy Makela as the answer to a stubborn cold sore that their son had, that wouldn't go away. Even after trying potent, pharmaceutical products, it was down to the last resort, surgery. 

Without wanting to go down that route, they did a bit more research and found that there was one option they had not yet tried – being the natural extract from an olive leaf. Olive leaf extract is a natural anti-viral, anti-biotic, and anti-inflammatory which has the power to combat viruses that causes cold sores, canker sores, and fever blisters. 

The first product, developed with the help of virologists – Oleavicin Soothing Gel – was created. And since then, the product offering has expanded to include a variety of other natural, proactive, and reactive solutions delivering prescription-strength relief without the potential harshness of a pharmaceutical.

Oleavicin is proud to offer products with all natural ingredients, sourced and made locally on the founders' farm in Santa Barbara. We use 100% certified organic olive leaf extract and proprietary patented Oleavicin formula.

We believe in the healing power of plants and in creating quality and effective products that are healthy and safe for you and your family.
