has long been a household name that families reach for at the first sign of a cold. It can be dropped onto a handkerchief or into water for inhalation during the day, at night a drop on a tissue tucked inside a pillowcase can help you to breathe easily so that you get a good night's sleep.
Applied to the skin, Olbas Oil produces a feeling of warmth and a local anaesthetic action, which makes it particularly effective in relieving muscular discomfort and arthritis pain.
Olbas Oil originated in Basel, Switzerland over 100 years ago, and continues to be a European and worldwide favorite. The natural essential oils in Olbas Oil are extracted from six medicinal herbs, the basis of healing in cultures around the world for centuries. This synergistic combination of six essential oils provides amazing relief on multiple levels.
Inhalation: Inhaling through a tissue sprinkled with Olbas Oil restores free breathing and provides fast relief when suffering from a cold, flu, or allergies. Or, add 10-20 drops of Olbas to a bowl of hot water, place a towel over your head, and breathe the vapors deeply for about 5 minutes. For nighttime relief, sprinkle 10 drops on your pillow... keeps nasal passages clear all night long. The natural essential oils are non-greasy and won’t stain most natural fabrics.
Massage: Apply Olbas Oil generously and gently massage the body. Can be used for a full massage or spot massage at pressure points for quick effect. Provides FAST relief as it penetrates deeply to soothe aches and pains from simple backache, arthritis, rheumatism, muscle strains, bruises, sprains and tired sore feet.
Sports & Exercise: Apply Olbas Oil to muscle areas BEFORE jogging, bicycling, or workouts to help relax tight muscles. Apply AFTER sports or exercise and massage gently to help reduce soreness and soothe overworked muscles. Bumps and bruises can be relieved by massaging a few drops on the affected area. Apply to sprains immediately and repeat 3 to 4 times daily.
Home & Work: Apply Olbas Oil to aching muscles in the arms, legs or back after a hard day on the job or working around the house. Apply to hands, fingers or feet to soothe and relieve aches and pains in the joints caused by arthritis, rheumatism or neuralgia. Massage a drop or two on temples and forehead to help relieve headaches. (Be careful to keep away from eyes.)
Family Use & Travel: Take some with you whenever you travel- great for those bumps, bruises and insect bites that inevitably come along. Massage on tired, sore feet and legs after prolonged periods of walking, standing or sports activity.

Long Time Olbas User
The first time I smelled Olbas Oil was in the spring of 1945, when mother massaged father's leg with it for cramps (in war-torn Germany). In America, I found Olbas again in the health food store and I started to use it around 1970 for hoarseness (mixed with honey), yellow jacket stings, to keep mosquitoes away, to protect from colds (in the nose), for earaches, for bruises. My husband uses the Inhaler and Pastilles which keep his nose from dripping. I love the Herbal Bath! I always have two bottles of the Oil at home, have given some away and have told many people about it. I have had no colds of flu for years. I have mixed some Olbas with vaseline to lubricate the inside of my dry nose... I hope Olbas will be made forever!
