Ahhh, the stress of wedding planning. It comes in many forms affecting your mental health and often times can manifest itself into physical discomfort. Although stress in inevitable, especially during wedding planning, it doesn’t have to prevent you from living your day-to-day life.
We were recently offered samples of Olbas Herbal Remedies and I jumped at the opportunity to try them. My anxiety tends to run high normally, but with the addition of wedding planning, it’s heading through the roof. Olbas generously sent samples of Olbas Oil, Olbas Inhaler and Olbas Herbal Bath – three oil-based herbal remedies developed from cajeput, cloves, eucalyptus, juniper, peppermint, and wintergreen.
I started with the Olbas Herbal Bath, adding it to the running water to create a relaxing bubble bath. The peppermint scent hit my nose and began to relax me immediately. I forgot about all the thoughts running around in my head, and sunk into the bath, also feeling relieved of minor lower back pain due to a day of cleaning house. Olbas Herbal Bath allowed me to dedicate some much-needed time to my mental and physical health, and reinvigorated me for the week ahead.
Camping was planned for the weekend and I knew it would be a great opportunity to pack my Olbas Inhaler. Between the, dry dirt, lack of showers and strenuous hikes, I knew I would need relief from my dry nose, and a little help with my breathing while hiking. After setting up camp and a bit of exploring, my nose was feeling irritated so I tried one inhalation in each nostril. My next hike was a breeze as I was able to breath deeply with no issues, and my nose felt clean and was no longer irritated. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I can’t wait until spring so I can control my allergies with my Olbas Inhaler.
Lastly, after a weekend spent hiking, I knew I needed some serious relief for my feet. I grabbed my Olbas Oil and massaged it directly on my tired feet. My aches were soothed, and I felt relaxed overall as the herbal scent also opened up by nasal and bronchial areas for easy, deep breathing. Olbas Oil can also help with allergies and nasal congestion through inhalation, loosen muscles through massage, and assist with a good night’s sleep by sprinkling a few drops on a tissue tucked inside your pillow case.
In addition to the Herbal Bath, Inahler and Oil, Olbas has Pastilles, Cough Syrup, Analgesic Salve, Herbal Tea and Lozenges. Weather you’re feeling achy, stressed out or suffering from nasal congestion, Olbas Herbal Remedies are a great way to help alleviate these issues naturally.
