What I cannot live without
“From the very first application, I felt relief. My skin sort of relaxed!” She gave me a wide smile as she lifted her heavy breast gently with both hands. The skin underneath her breast, which had been horribly inflamed, oozing thin liquid when I had seen it 2 weeks prior, now had a healthy light pink brand new skin covering. “Even my husband has started using the cream on his rash around his groin area. You know how men can struggle with an itch in summer! He says the cream cools and sooths as he applies it, immediately relieving the irritation and itch. I think I must get 2 bottles today!” By now, she had dressed again, happily chatting away about all the different uses of Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Cream. Her plump, short little fingers struggled through her permed hair, brushing the slightly damp curls from her forehead.
“I remembered what you said about burns and how good the cream will be for it. Now, my little grand-daughter, bless her, came to stay a few days with Gran and Oups; you know how these kids can stay in the swimming pool! That night her little shoulders and face were bright red and so painful. At first I was a little worried to put this Tea Tree Cream onto her, you know. If it is your own child you can take a chance, but suppose she reacted or got sick from the cream, my son and his wife will never let her visit again”, she told in a confidential way, sitting back into the chair while tugging at the hem of her bright floral dress. Her plump little ankles sat a little to the back to balance her sitting position. “So, I just put a little of the Tea Tree Cream onto her shoulders. Immediately she could feel the relief. ‘Some more, Gran!’ Well, for the rest of the night it was me and the cream, putting it on every time her sunburn felt worse! Shame, she is such a little sweetie. Next day she was back in the water. With all we know about skin cancer and all, I went and bought a sun block and got her a very nice hat. The sun block she allowed me to put on, the hat ended up in the pool!” She was headlong into her favourite hobby; chatting about her children, her home, and her grandchildren.
“She is so smart, this little granddaughter of mine ! While I was rubbing her shoulders and face with the Tea Tree Cream, she picked up the bottle and started to read the label.‘Why is it called Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Cream, Gran? That is a funny name!’ Now tell me, do you know why it is called Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Cream?’” Her round little eyes looked small in her chubby face. They had a sweet expression, so often seen in granny eyes.
