Olbas for Children relieves congestion

Olbas for Children relieves congestion   

Let's face it...stuffy little noses can mean a sleepless night for the whole family.


Olbas for Children is a gentle decongestant formulation to relieve congestion in even the smallest noses of the family – from as young as 3 months.

With a few drops of Olbas for Children on a hanky in the bedroom, easy breathing and a restful night can be restored to your household.

Olbas for Children is a gentle blend of pure plant oils, with ingredients including clove oil, eucalyptus, juniper berry and cajuput. It's the combination of these natural ingredients which releases those famously soothing and relieving natural vapours and can result in peaceful nights and sweet dreams all round.

How to use

For babies from 3 months to 2 years
Add 4 drops of Olbas for Children to a tissue or hanky and hold it close to, but not touching, the congested little nose so the vapours can start to take effect. At night time simply sprinkle 4 drops of Olbas for Children onto a tissue or hanky and place out of reach in their bedroom.   

For children aged 2 and over   
Add 8 to 12 drops onto a tissue or hanky and hold close to, but not touching, the child's nose to allow the child to breathe in the vapours. At night, add 8-12 drops into a bowl of hot water and allow your child to inhale the vapours through the steam – we don't like children to be left alone with hot water so please ensure your child is supervised at all times.

Top tips to help your congested little one    

When little ones are feeling under the weather and congested, here are a few of our top tips to make them feel more comfortable:

• Keep your child's bedroom warm, but well ventilated – perhaps open a window nearby to get some fresh air into their room

• Make sure they drink plenty of fluids, water is best, but we also like to put a little squash in there to make it more interesting for them!

• Make sure they're getting some healthy / good food– fruit and vegetables are the obvious choice. This could be in the form of soup or a fun fruit cocktail if your little ones are particularly fussy!

• From 2 years of age, teach little ones to blow their nose. A good way to do this is to explain that "it's like sniffing, but backwards" – good luck!
