Throughout the year I tend to favour showers over baths until the temperature drops, and for me it becomes all about the baths. There’s nothing better than a long, hot soak in the bath with a decadent bath oil after a long day and getting into cosy pyjamas and fluffy socks. If you love bath oils, you need to try the Olverum Bath Oil especially as it was named the Best Bath Oil in the Tatler Magazine Beauty Awards 2018 and it’s said to be beloved by the British Family.
The story behind the Olverum brand is really interesting and has a time-honoured formulation which has remained largely unchanged for 83 years, and until now has only been known by a cult following in the UK. The Olverum Bath Oil has recently been repackaged but it still retains the same formulation loved for eight decades by its’ passionate devotees. After reading that The Sunday Times Style Magazine described the bath oil as being a ‘bath nirvana’, I knew it would make a perfect inclusion within my Christmas gift guide series, as who wouldn’t want to receive a decadent, luxurious, award winning bath oil as a gift?!
“A unique and luxurious aromatic blend of essential oils which combine to ease stress and relax tension in both mind and body, bringing you back to your complete and natural self.
Olverum Bath Oil is highly concentrated and only half a capful (5ml) is needed per bath. Accordingly, virtually all the oil is absorbed by the skin leaving no greasy residue in the bath after use. Add half a capful to a run warm bath. Disperse the oil with your hand. Relax, restore, renew.”
Olverum Bath Oil Key Benefits
- Deep Relaxation and Stress Relief – Inhaling the aromatic vapours released by a warm Olverum bath helps relieve tension and aids relaxation. Used at the end of a stressful day, Olverum can help you achieve a deep and untroubled night’s sleep.
- Soothes Aches and Pains – Olverum stimulates the circulation and helps bring relief to aching muscles and joints.
- Beautifully Soft Skin – The light non-greasy oil is easily absorbed by the skin, leaving it feeling beautifully soft and pampered.
Olverum have three different products; the Bath Oil, the Dry Body Oil and The Body Oil. I really like that Olverum offer three different sizes of their bath oil, and they offer free gift wrapping at checkout, and free shipping which couldn’t be more perfect for Christmas gifting. The Olverum Bath Oil is available in a 125ml size for £35 which is the size that I have, a 250ml size for £62 and also a lovely travel set with three x 15ml bottles that are enough for nine baths for £24.
The packaging is so simple, but so luxurious with a beautiful clear glass bottle and pale green coloured oil. Even the box is beautiful, with a lovely textured finish. The 125ml size of the oil contains enough for 25 baths, which works out at £1.40 per bath which I feel is a lot more reasonable when it’s broken down as you only need a half a capful per bath so it goes a long way.
Olverum Bath Oil is an highly concentrated and unique blend of 10 essential oils; Eucalyptus, Lavender, Juniper, Lavandin, Lemon Peel, Siberian Fir Needle, Exotic Verbena, Lime, Geranium and Rosemary. As soon as you unwrap the box, you can smell the incredible scent of the oil and it’s absolutely one of the nicest smelling bath oils I’ve ever smelt.
If you’ve ever tried the Aromatherapy Associates Bath Oils, they’re very lovely but the Olverum Bath Oil is honestly on another level but the price difference is insane. The Olverum Bath Oil is 125ml for £35, whereas the Aromatherapy Associates Bath Oils contain 55ml for £49. So you get over double the amount of oil for £14 less which blows my mind in all honesty. It would be such a gorgeous gift, but also for a treat for yourself if want something that you can enjoy whenever you’re feeling stressed, anxious or need help drifting off and after using it, it makes your house smell incredible for hours so it’s as if it almost works as an home fragrance products as a bonus too.
You can purchase the Olverum Bath Oil on their website.
