OLVERUM, the Ultimate Bath Oil
Once a well-guarded secret passed around a privileged circle including Europe’s royalty, Olverum Bath Oil has recently become more widely available which is excellent news for those of us who need to de-stress, relax our aching muscles and get a good night’s sleep.
Developed in Germany in 1929 by Franz Otto Klein, an affluent wine merchant in the Mosel valley, its combination of ten aromatic essences work on a number of levels. After pouring a capful into my bath, the invigorating oils of eucalyptus, rosemary and pine immediately fill the air and my breathing becomes slower and more even. Wallowing for a while, I can feel the tension in my muscles dissipating and I become aware of the aromas of lemon and lavender. Juniper and verbena are also part of the mix. So far, it’s proved very effective!
The history of Olverum shows its benefits to be numerous`: it can clear congested sinuses and improve breathing; it soothes aching muscles and rheumatic pain; relieves tension and stress; it encourages deep sleep and restores dry skin to a more soft and supple condition. It can be particularly helpful in recovering from colds and flu.
Olverum is also recommended for use after strenuous physical activities such as gardening or any sport. Undiluted it may be used as a massage oil and applied directly on the skin to soothe sore muscles.
The final test came at bedtime and was passed effortlessly as I slipped easily into sleep. I didn’t wake until the following morning.
