|Pictured: Norma Kamali Olive Oil Beauty Products Giveaway.|
If you follow me on Twitter, then you know I have been sick with a nasty bug. for the past few days. I’m no longer shopping for the best fashions at the best prices, but rather Puffs, Theraflu, Vick’s Vapor Rub and some Zicam. This is how bad things are. I got so sick, I even tuned in for 10 minutes to Sheen’s Korner to see Charlie’s live webcast over the weekend. Times have been tough!
One of the few things I’ve been enjoying in the past week is the Wellness Kit that designer Norma Kamali gave me. Some of you may not know this, but since 9/11, Norma has been exploring the healing natural properties of Olive Oil. ” I don’t know everything, but just after 9/11 I got involved in this Olive Oil product and I realized that these products are so simple,” says the designer. “There are no chemicals. Everything has been around for thousands of years. You can have a mask that’s made out of sea clay, olive oil and ground olive pits. It’s great for your skin and you can feel and see results. That you just puree olives and that’s a great soap or you put ground olive pits in that and you have an exfoliator. A liniment that’s made out of calcium and olive oil, that’s great to calm the skin of sunburn or diaper rash. Massaging olive oil, first pressed olive oil, into your skin and having the nutrition go into your bloodstream instead of these toxic chemicals just made sense.”
If you stop in her 56th St store in New York, you can visit her wellness cafe where she sells some amazing natural products, including Lavender Ice Cream with Olive Oil. I’ve meet Norma a few times, and she has the most amazing skin which she attributes to her healthy diet and her use of Olive Oil products. In the last few days, I’ve been checking out her Olive Oil body wash and massage oil. It may not make the cold/flu disappear any quicker, but it’s making me feel better, and soothing my skin so I don’t feel so dehydrated. After a hot shower, or stream room treatment, I’m enjoying a slathering of the Olive Calcium Liniment or Massage Oil before throwing on my soft fleece from Alternative Apparel. It really feels good and provides some comfort during a period of extreme discomfort, congestion and sneezing! So, I’m passing along the NK Wellness love to some of my readers.
