Vicky Vlachonis went from treating dancers in The Royal Ballet to tending to health-minded stars like Gwyneth Paltrow, Nicole Richie and Elton John. Vlachonis is currently touting the benefits of Gaea Fresh extra virgin olive oil out of her native Greece. Fresh is the word: Each bottle (black, to repel heat) has the harvest date printed on the label, along with the number of hand-picked olives that went into making it. $18.99. http://gaea.gr/en/#/olive-oil.

Never miss a local story.
