From teeny tiny babies to fully grown adults, Jaitun/Olives are a storehouse of innumerable benefits. Green, purple or black, Jaitun/Olives are the perfect fruit to include in our daily diet.
I remember the faint smell of a particular oil that came out of a green cuboid of a container. My mother would apply it on my body as a kid and then on my brother's when he was just a little baby. And not just at my place, that familiar green cuboid was something I saw in many households. Frankly, I didn't appreciate the smell much. But now that I'm older, nostalgia hits me pretty hard when I remember that oil's noticeably specific smell.
