PRESCRIPTION LABELS September 28, 2009 Get link Facebook Twitter Pinterest Google+ Email Prescription labels, circa 1930. These were the days olive oil was available on prescription! Considered to be useful only as ear drops (warmed, and applied one drop at a time) for chronic earache! No-one in the UK even knew you could use it for cooking. 1930s labels Get link Facebook Twitter Pinterest Google+ Email Comments Nancy @ La Chambre Rose29 September 2009 at 15:43Love this one! Thanks for all.ReplyDeleteSugarpie15 January 2010 at 09:01Love these!!!I'll have to print a few copies to show at the next Psychology convention. My mother bathed all 6 of us in olive oil as babies, in the 50's and 60's it was thought to insure a lifelong good complexion. So far my sissys and brother all have very nice skin. Now I hear Dr. Oz and other TV docs preach the many benefits of olive Oil, it must hold a lot of value after all. C'mon over Susie, I'll make us some EVOO martinis ;)XOCeliaReplyDeleteSusie Jefferson15 January 2010 at 10:26Now that IS fascinating! Must have made you all slippery little souls though - hard to hold onto in the bath. I think my mother just stuck to baby lotion. I'd love martinis - what's EVOO?? Some things just don't translate to the UK, lolReplyDeleteSugarpie16 January 2010 at 08:56Oh.. well.. I was just teasing ya about an EVOO martini. EVOO is a cullinary term for Extra Virgin Olive Oil and I kind of doubt you'd like a big drink of it. But the health benefits are amazing! Read here for health values; http://www.whatsfordinner.net/articles/article-olive-oil.htmlAnd for skin: http://www.thedailygreen.com/green-homes/latest/olive-oil-benefits-uses-460609Also Wikipedia has a nice list of the attributes for skin and health care: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olive_oilThe martini offer still stands!! Susie, I'd be absolutely honored to make you some real martinis!! I can visualize a very giggly evening drinking with you lol.
