When I was a child and I had a blocked up nose my mum always used to put Olbas Oil on a handkerchief for me. It always helped me breath more easily and putting the handkerchief under my pillow helped me get a good nights sleep. It is hard to describe the vapour, it is a menthol eucalyptus type of smell which is very pleasant. What I was not aware of was that Olbas Oil can also be used as a rub on aching muscles to provide relief. I also didn’t know that Olbas create a bubble bath called Olbas Bath.
Olbas bath combines the soothing vapours of Olbas Oil with a bubble bath. I always find a nice warm bath makes me feel loads better when I am feeling ill and bubble bath is always relaxing. I gave this a try, I poured some under the tap as it was running and a big pile of bubbles appeared. You could smell the Olbas Oil aroma and it definitely made me breath more easily. It was definitely as soothing pampering bath. I had a sore calf muscle before I got in the bath, caused by running and I found after the bath that the muscle was not aching as much.
The good thing about Olbas Oil is it can be used with children and if you have a poorly child an Olbas Oil bath might be just the thing to help them get a good nights sleep. Olbas Bath is RRP £3.99 for 250 ml.

Disclosure: I was sent some Olbas Bath to try in order to do an honest review. I was not told what to write and my opinions are my own.
