Olbas Oil is an inhalant decongestant containing plant oils that can help relieve cold symptoms such as nasal and bronchial (lung) congestion.

What is Olbas Oil?

Olbas oil is an inhalant decongestant containing plant-derived oils and other active ingredients that can help relieve cold, flu, and hay fever symptoms such as nasal, bronchial, and sinus congestion, as well as catarrh (the build-up of mucus in the airways) and muscular pain.

How does Olbas Oil work?

Olbas oil works in two ways - by relieving nasal passages and sinuses upon inhalation, and by helping to relieve muscular pain and stiffness when applied topically onto the skin.

The oils in Olbas Oil, as well as the various menthol-based compounds in the product, combine to give off vapours and aromas that can help unlock nasal passages and sinuses.

Moreover, rubbing Olbas Oil onto the skin can help relieve muscular pain and stiffness because of the analgesic (pain-relieving) and anti-inflammatory properties of the oils in this product, including eucalyptus, peppermint, cajuput, and peppermint oil, among others.

How often can Olbas Oil be used in a day?

For adults and children 12 years and over, if using Olbas Oil as an inhalant, use two to three drops in the daytime and nighttime. To use Olbas Oil for muscular pain, gently apply to and massage the painful area three times daily.

How should Olbas Oil be stored?

Olbas oil should be stored below 25°C and out of the reach of children.

How to use Olbas Oil for sinus issues

For nasal congestion and sinus inflammation, add a few drops of Olbas Oil to a tissue, the inside of a pillowcase, or hot water (such as in a bath), and simply inhale the vapours.

The natural decongestive properties of the essential oils in Olbas Oil will facilitate breathing by helping to clear the nasal passages and eliminating congestion.

Does Olbas Oil unblock the nose?

Olbas Oil can help unblock the nose as it contains active oils that act as natural decongestants, emitting vapours that help reduce nasal congestion.

How to use Olbas Oil for a cough

When a cough is present, the NHS recommends adding 1-2 drops of Olbas Oil in a bowl of water and inhaling the steam every morning and night.

The vapours from the oils and active ingredients in Olbas Oil, particularly Eucalyptus oil (which has anti-inflammatory and decongestant properties) and methyl salicylate (a compound that has pain-relieving properties), can help soothe a sore throat and relieve cough symptoms.

Does Olbas Oil help your lungs?

Olbas oil can help reduce lung congestion caused by conditions such as cold and flu due to the action of the various active oils and ingredients in the product.

Does Olbas Oil help phlegm?

Olbas Oil can help reduce the build-up of phlegm by loosening mucus in the lungs and airways, making it easier to cough out.

How to use Olbas Oil for muscle aches

For muscle aches, rub and massage Olbas oil directly into the skin three times a day. The peppermint oil in the product will cause a warming sensation and is thought to contribute to improved blood circulation, while the juniper berry and clove oils can help reduce inflammation and swelling in the muscles.

Moreover, the eucalyptus, peppermint, and cajuput oils in Olbas Oil can help relieve muscle stiffening and disrupt pain signals in the brain, relieving discomfort from muscle aches.

Can Olbas Oil be used when pregnant and when breastfeeding?

Although the oils in Olbas Oil contain no toxins, pregnant and breastfeeding women should consult a GP or pharmacist before using this product.

Possible side effects

  • Skin rashes among those who are hypersensitive to the oils in Olbas Oil
  • A mild stinging sensation that typically subsides within a short period of time
