Essential oils are one of nature’s ways of helping the body maintain wellness. The natural essential oils in the Olbas formula are extracted from medicinal herbs, the basis of healing in cultures around the world for centuries. Years of research, study, and testing of these traditional plants by Swiss botanists is what makes the Olbas formula truly unique.
When inhaled, these essential oils pass into the bloodstream almost immediately via the lungs. When applied externally, they are absorbed into the body via the capillaries of the skin.
For those little blocked noses that find traditional Olbas Oil just a bit too powerful, there’s Olbas for Children, a gentle decongestant formulation to relieve congestion in even the smallest noses of the family – from as young as 3 months old.
- Just a few drops on a handkerchief is all it takes to help unblock even the stuffiest blocked nose- thanks to Olbas’ powerful natural decongestant vapors.
- And you can tuck the hanky into your pillowcase at night for soothing night-time congestion relief to aid restful sleep.
- For a really intense Olbas experience, put a few drops of Olbas Oil in a bowl of hot water, lean over it and cover your head with a towel. It’s enough to clear even the most stubborn of blocked noses.
- When you’re feeling achy, try massaging in a few drops of Olbas Oil for soothing relief.
- Olbas Oil is suitable for adults and children as young as 3 months, though Olbas also has a gentler formulation specially developed for little noses – Olbas for Children, also suitable from 3 months. Always read the label.
