THE ELIXIR OF LIFE


I have just discovered my latest beauty secret from a small 75 year old lady who works at McDonalds.  It was her birthday and I complimented her on having such smooth wrinkle free skin.  She sat right down and said it was due to olive oil.  That’s right; pure extra virgin olive oil.  I remembered my grandmother’s skin as being free of wrinkles also, and that she too used olive oil.  Oh, why does it take me so long to realize that other people know more than I do?

My bathroom counter and cupboard is filled with expensive jars of stuff that assured me the skin of a 20 something.  None of which worked I should mention.  But I am a sucker for a pretty young saleswoman who says she actually uses her product and see what it does for her?  So I reach for my credit card and add another jar to my collection.

Anyway, seeing is believing and I don’t believe such a nice old lady would lie to me about such a serious matter.  So I came home and poured olive oil into a small container to place in my bathroom.  I have used it for two days, and you know, I think I see a difference already.  Of course, it would have been better if I had started earlier—like maybe 40 years ago, but better late than never.

I’m going to tell my friend Cheri because she just planted a whole olive orchard, and it’s just the right time for her to use it and  in a couple of years I will be able to get all the olive oil I need and my skin will continue to look radient.

  1. Well, another strong argument for olive oil! The trees are doing very well, considering the heat wave we are having. Ron has been over there every night after work, even in the dark. Don D. came up to check the orchard out last night (sort of a well baby check). A tree that had a big root cut off before it was planted may die but we knew that tree was iffy. He suggests to leave it in the ground for several months, even if it looks dead. Earwigs have invaded. Of course, Ron is busy working, so “his” hobby has now become mine.

    And yes. You will have all the olive oil you need for that beautiful face. I will try olive oil on my skin too.
