Olbas Oil contains a unique blend of six pure plant oils combining the
essential oils of peppermint, eucalyptus, cajuput, clove, juniper berry and
wintergreen with menthol (natural extract from the peppermint plant). Each
ingredient has value of its own, but the real secret which makes Olbas Oil
special is the way the oils have been blended together.
How essential oils work?
The essential oils have a strong, pleasant odour. When exposed to the air,
they give off a powerful vapour. Inhaling this vapour gives temporary
relief from nasal congestion and sinus trouble. Essential oils applied to
the skin produce a feeling of warmth and a local anesthetic action. They
are effective in providing temporary relief from muscular discomfort and
What relief will I get for my congestion?
Olbas Oil will temporarily loosen the mucus, relieve congestion, making
breathing easier and bring temporary relief of sinus pain.
How do I use the product?
To use the inhalant simply sprinkle a few drops on to a handkerchief of
tissue and breathe in the vapours. Or put two to three drops on the palms
of your hands, cup your hands and breathe deeply. At night, sprinkle a few
drops on the sheet or pillow, or rub it into the upper chest. The
penetrating vapours will provide temporary relief from congestion.
Can children use Olbas Oil?
Olbas Oil is really effective and can be used for children aged two and
over. Just put a drop on the sheet or on a tissue fastened to the end of
the bed. Or place a few drops in a jug of warm water at a safe distance
away from the bed. Your children will breathe freely.

Olbas Oil is easily absorbed when applied to the skin. This produces a
feeling of comfortable warmth. Olbas Oil should be gently and thoroughly
massaged into the affected part.
