Olbas to the rescue Review with images

AdvantagesMade from natural ingredients

DisadvantagesMay not suit all needs

"...to keep a bottle of Olbas Oil on standby for those moments when I am in need of the soothing and airway opening abilities Olbas offers me, as I never know when I might need it. I find that this product seems to have a long expiry date too, as when I need to use my Olbas oil it smells as strong and fresh as it did when newly opened for many months after its first use. As time goes on the oil does tend to lose a little of its strength, although I find ..." Read review

AdvantagesWorks as it promises, long lasting, quick for relief for blocked sinuses, good carrier oil too.

DisadvantagesNo use if you don't like the smell, not for use internally.

"...catarrh, colds and sinuses. Non-greasy. Olbas Oil is a mixture of essential pure plant oils for relief of bronchial and nasal congestion and hay fever by inhalation, and for symptomatic relief of muscular pain by application to the skin…” ==General Impressions & Design== Designed to be used as a non-internal oil product, the best way I can describe “Olbas Oil,” is to brand it as the “par excellence aromatherapy,” oil because largely, this is ..."

A nice relief.

AdvantagesFew drops work well and cheap price.

DisadvantagesNone for me.

" Just before the Christmas holidays I had a bit of an irritating cough and one which was quite annoying and it did wake me up a couple of times during the night. One night after I had been coughing and kept my hubby awake I remembered what a nurse had told me a while ago to do to relieve a cough like mine happened to be, being a dry, tickly cough. She told me to inhale using a steamer and to place a few drops of this oil into the water and breathe ..." Read review

Great way to clear stuffy noses

AdvantagesClears stuffy noses

DisadvantagesNot everyone likes the smell

"...am a huge fan of Olbas oil. As a child I was always secretly jealous of those children who when had a cold that had handkerchiefs smelling of eucalyptus whereas my handkerchief never did. I always wondered how their mums got vicks vapour rub on their handkerchiefs and didn't realise it was Olbas oil till I was an adult. Olbas Oil has a very distinctive smell, it is a special mixture of pure plant oils, with ingredients including clove oil, eucalyptus, ..." Read review

A Product for all noses

AdvantagesIt does unblock your nose

DisadvantagesHurts when you get it in your eye

My number 1 for stuffy noses (Olbas Oil)

AdvantagesEasy to get hold of, natural, works well

DisadvantagesLarger bottles can be harder to find

"...quite hard and that's where Olbas oil comes in incredibly handy. Unlike most decongestants you don't poke it up your nose to inhale it, you don't squirt it up there either, or take it in tablet form or anything. In fact, you don't get it anywhere closer to you than on a bit of tissue near the bed. For me, the snuffles are generally something that just happens when I have a cold, and it's normally then when I bring out the Olbas oil. However, although ..." Read review
