Frequently Asked Questions
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 rheumatic pain.
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.
