Olivia Amitrano — founder and creator of Organic Olivia — is leveling up in 2020 with What’s The Juice: a podcast as multifaceted as its listeners. What’s The Juice is an extension of Organic Olivia, which started as a blog but quickly morphed into a fierce community of like minds on a divine path of learning, growing, and healing. Our greatest tools are traditional wisdom, herbal medicine and a brave willingness to explore our own behavior and psychology. Olivia is an herbalist, an entrepreneur, a blogger, and most notably an educator.
Each episode is an opportunity to synthesize her education in herbalism, psychology, and a lifetime of health issues into valuable, tangible tips on how to heal and thrive. Interviews with specialists, doctors, therapists, practitioners, astrologers, estheticians, artists, and storytellers are oozing with raw, human moments and empowering information. Candid, honest, curious, engaged (and in case it isn’t obvious, a Leo), this young woman is on a mission to understand the human condition while sharing both the present chapter of her life as well as the lessons she’s learned getting here. Peeling back the layers isn’t always pretty, but life is juicy and we’re in this together.

I LOVE THIS PODCAST
This is quite literally the only podcast I listen to. It’s jam packed with so much knowledge I have to take notes and love re-listening to episodes. It’s had such a huge impact on my health and helped me better understand the mechanisms taking place in my body, especially when I take herbs or just eat certain foods in general. I’m a forever customer of OO and listener to the podcast! Can’t wait for season 2!!!!!!!
No one has had a bigger impact on my health. I love alllll her interests and she’s really about whole wellness. She’s a gift and every last herbal concoction she makes works!
