PRESCRIPTION LABELS on September 28, 2009 Get link Facebook Twitter Pinterest Google+ Email Other Apps 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 Other Apps Comments Nancy @ La Chambre Rose29 September 2009 at 15:43Love this one! Thanks for all.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplySugarpie15 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 ;)XOCeliaReplyDeleteRepliesReplySusie 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, lolReplyDeleteRepliesReplySugarpie16 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.
