Olbas, The Marvelous Swiss Oil
Switzerland has many natural resources, among them the rich variety of flora that grows in the lush valleys, by the crystal clear lakes and in the pristine mountains. Given such an abundance of medicinal plants, it is not surprising that Swiss herbalists and botanists are renowned throughout the world for their skill in using natural herbal oils and essences to promote healing. Olbas is a remedy that has been carefully developed from this wealth of experience and knowledge.
It 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 has truly become an internationally favorite remedy.
