As the dark cold Winter nights draw in, my appetite for long, relaxing, hot baths is increasing and the beautifully packaged Olverum Bath Oil is my current go-to bath time pamper.
A capful added to running water disperses evenly in the bath (there are no oily lumps) filling your bathroom with the heady smell of ten essential oils – Eucalyptus, Lavender, Juniper, Lavandin, Lemon Peel, Siberian Fir Needle, Exotic Verbena, Lime, Geranium, and Rosemary. The quality is totally befitting of the Olverum name, the literal meaning of which is ‘true oil’.
The vapours from the oils open up your airways and clear your mind, brushing aside the stresses of the day. Your body is left delicately moisturised and smelling gorgeous. The perfect antidote for a long tiring day and chilly winter nights. I described it as a warm wet hug in a bottle was how I described it to my OH.
It’s not surprising to find out it has a cult following spanning 8 decades! Created by Franz Ottto Klein (a wine merchant in Germany) the product is now under British ownership having been relaunched in 2015.
I loved the Olverum bath oil.
It’s perfect for my much needed wind-down, self-indulgent bath. Each small capful of oil creates a bath you want to stay in, so make sure you have plenty of hot water to top the bath up when it starts to cool down. And the aromatic smells lingers on your skin for the most relaxing sleep.
This bath oil deserves time, candles and a big fluffy bathrobe!
