They Give You The POWER To Breathe… Naturally!

We all need a little comfort from time to time ...especially when we’re not feeling well. That's where Olbas Herbal Remedies are unique. They help you feel better... Naturally!

Expertly formulated in Switzerland, Olbas Herbal Remedies are designed to comfort and soothe you in many ways. I've been using Olbas products for over 40 years and they are always front and center in my nature's medicine chest. It was my grandmother who introduced me to the world-famous Olbas Oil when I was a teenager and I've used this remarkable oil ever since! It's one of the reason why I've never taken any prescription medication in my life.

What is Olbas Oil?

Originating in Basel, Switzerland over 100 years ago, Olbas continues to be a European and worldwide favorite. Olbas Oil contains six essential oils — each with a unique value of its own. Essential oils are nature's way of maintaining wellness. These oils are carefully extracted from traditional plants that have been the basis of healing in cultures around the world for centuries. Blended by Swiss herbalists, they make the Olbas formula truly unique.

This natural formula contains six essential oils that provide extraordinary benefits:

  • Peppermint Oil is recognized the world over for its signature minty, fresh aroma. The essential oil, distilled from the fresh leaves of the Mentha piperita plant, retains that powerfully refreshing fragrance. The penetrating vapors work quickly to enhance the breathing passages and maximize respiratory function. Peppermint’s primary compound, Menthol, produces a cooling sensation that relaxes tense muscles and alleviates minor strains and muscular discomforts. Aromatherapists also recommend Peppermint oil’s invigorating scent to enhance mental focus and concentration, increase alertness, as well as to ease tension and stress. For athletes, these unique properties may significantly help to improve athletic performance, not only by increasing mood and motivation, but also by enhancing the breathing passages, thereby maximizing oxygen intake.
  • Eucalyptus Oil - Eucalyptus is an aromatic evergreen tea native to Australia and Tasmania. The powerful essential oil is synonymous with respiratory health, and it is found in many popular remedies, including chest rubs, liniments, and balms. The essential oil of Eucalyptus is well known for providing immediate respiratory support, promoting healthy lung function, promoting oxygen absorption, and relaxing the respiratory muscles. The herb tea made from Eucalyptus Leaves is also a traditional remedy for soothing a scratchy throat. The brisk, energizing scent of Eucalyptus clears the mind, enhances focus, and increases mental alertness. The stately Eucalyptus tree has found various uses over the centuries. Historically, the Australian Aborigines relied on Eucalyptus to relieve minor joint discomforts and sore muscles. That traditional application continues today.
  • Cajeput Oil is distilled from the fresh leaves and twigs of the Cajeput tree. It has a slightly medicinal aroma that is reminiscent of camphor and eucalyptus oils. In Southeast Asia, the Cajeput tree grows abundantly. The people of Vietnam and surrounding countries highly regard Cajeput as a traditional remedy. It is known in their healing culture primarily for its use for muscular and joint discomforts. It is also used for promoting healthy skin, as well as for its benefits to the throat, sinus, and respiratory tract, being very soothing to bronchial and sinus passages. As an aromatherapy agent, Cajeput oil stimulates the mind and promotes clear thinking. When I have a difficult article to write or am preparing for several back-to-back radio interviews, I always rely on this oil, which is one of the ingredients in Olbas Oil.
  • Juniper Berry Oil has a long history of use in massage therapy to soothe back, joint and muscle discomforts. On tired, achy feet, a sore lower back, or after a arduous workout, this oil works wonders and soothes the body from head to toe. My grandmother used to put this oil in my bath to help assuage my tired body after working for hours in her herb garden. Just the fragrance of it brings a smile to my face and heart. The penetrating essence enhances the breathing passages and supports healthy respiratory function. It also stimulates metabolism and supports the immune system. Aromatherapists suggest using Juniper’s uplifting scent to ease tension and stress, as well as to clear the thoughts. At one time, the twigs of Juniper were burned in French hospitals to help purify the air.
  • Wintergreen Oil - Wintergreen is a North American evergreen shrub bearing bright red berry-like fruits. Historically, Wintergreen was highly regarded as a remedy by Native Americans, who considered Wintergreen to be a popular beverage tea, and also employed its use for minor aches, and to promote breathing. The essential oil distilled from the crushed leaves has a characteristic refreshing, sweet, mint-like aroma. It is readily absorbed by the skin, and is very warm and soothing. The primary constituent of Wintergreen is Methyl Salicylate, the active ingredient in numerous over-the-counter liniments and ointments targeting relief of pain due to arthritis, backache, overworked muscles, and sore joints. Wintergreen essential oil imparts a refreshing, uplifting scent that revitalizes the senses. NOTE: Wintergreen is a potent essential oil that should be diluted before use, used with great care, and kept out of the reach of children. The Olbas Oil formula contains only a very small amount of Wintergreen oil (less than 4%).
  • Clove Oil is steam distilled from the bud of the plant. The highly prized essential oil from the spicy Clove buds has the well-earned reputation for soothing minor joint discomforts and promoting respiratory, digestive, and dental health. In fact, my dental hygienist wears gloves that have a faint fragrance of clove and they are really quite wonderful when she is cleaning my teeth. They make me want to breathe deeply, which helps keep me calm during the cleaning process. This strong, stimulating aromatic oil has a familiar warm, sweet spicy aroma and is a comforting aromatherapy fragrance.

The synergistic combination of these six essential oils provides amazing sensations to your body at multiple levels. Olbas Oil has long been a household name that families reach for when suffering from seasonal distress and related discomforts. As an aromatic inhalant, this completely natural essential oil formula delivers invigorating and soothing sensations to the nasal and bronchial areas. Olbas Oil can be dropped onto a handkerchief or into warm water for inhalation during the day. At night, a drop on a tissue tucked inside a pillowcase can help stimulate and enhance your breathing passages so that you get a good night's sleep. Also well known for its use in massage, Olbas Oil tends to stimulate circulation at the surface of the skin. It opens up the pores and provides a comfortable warm and cool feeling in the muscles and joints. And if you want to light his or her fire, boost passion, and bolster libido, try using this oil on your partner and get ready for an unforgettable experience. Additionally, runners, cyclists, and other sports enthusiasts praise the value of Olbas Oil. Massaging with Olbas Oil helps loosen muscles and make them supple, while inhaling Olbas vapors may help support endurance and performance.

There is an Olbas Oil for children, too, as you see here. to the right.
