Beyond the Brand - Olbas

Our Story

OlbasIt was here in Switzerland, over 100 years ago, that these herbalists and botanists developed a blend of pure essentials oils that came to be known as Olbas Oil. The name OLBAS is an acronym for Oleum Basileum, "Oil from Basle". Basle is nestled on the border of Switzerland, Germany and France in the very heart of Europe, and to this day is a center of pharmaceutical research in Switzerland. Over the years, Olbas has found its way into the far reaches of the earth. From England to Australia, from South Africa to Sweden, Olbas is truly a favorite international remedy.

In the United States, Olbas has been available since the 1940's. Initially, it was imported into the USA by Mrs. Heidi Ritter, a kindly woman of German decent, who lived in Oak Creek, Wisconsin. She provided Olbas Remedies to many in the Midwest and throughout the United States.

The essential oils in Olbas have a rich history of aromatherapy usage dating back to the ancient Egyptians and Chinese. That's why they provide POWER to Breathe, Naturally!

Essential oils are one of nature's ways of helping the body maintain wellness. The natural essential oils in the Olbas formulas are extracted from medicinal herbs, the basis of healing in cultures around the world for centuries. Years of research, study and testing of these traditional plants by Swiss botanists is what makes the Olbas formula truly unique. When inhaled, these essential oils pass into the bloodstream almost immediately via the lungs. When applied externally, they are absorbed into the body via the capillaries of the skin.

The Benefits

Olbas readily diffuses into the air, providing extraordinary benefits to nasal and bronchial areas. Olbas is also readily absorbed into the skin, producing a deep feeling of comfortable warmth. When used in massage, Olbas Oil has the remarkable ability to stimulate circulation at the surface of the skin by opening up the skin pores, bringing a soothing warm feeling to tired muscles and joints.

These unique properties of Olbas Oil are incorporated into each of the remedies in the Olbas line.
