When it’s raining outside, my thoughts quickly turn to hot baths, red wine and a good book. As much as I have loved the beautiful sunshine and heat we’ve had in the UK over the past few weeks, for me nothing beats autumn. Although I’m not quite ready for the cold and the wind to come back and am waiting for the return of the sun, in the last few days we had rain. It was a lovely excuse to retire to the bathroom with some of my favourite things. I first mentioned Olverum Bath Oil as one of my Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas For Her. In fact, it was number one on my list of gift ideas. I want to explain just why I love it in more detail.
Olverum Bath Oil
Olverum is an extremely concentrated therapeutic bath oil. You need only the tiniest drop in your bath water to feel its effects. It contains ten pure essential oils, carefully blended to work synergistically. They have a variety of uses, so you can use Olverum to help meet a range of needs. For example, lemon and lavender oils help to soothe the mind and soak away stress. Pine and eucalyptus open the sinuses to help when you have a cold. Juniper and rosemary soothe aching muscles, great after a workout or strenuous activity. As a bonus, the oil moisturises your skin really well.
The scent is unisex so the whole family will be happy to use it.
How To Use It
Olverum is so concentrated that you only need a teaspoon of it for your bath. Add it to warm water and disperse with your hand. It will fill your bathroom with its wonderfully aromatic scent, and instantly relax you. The fragrance lingers for several hours afterwards, meaning you experience its full effects as you get ready for bed after your bath.
For me, this is a little bottle of pure luxury. From the classic packaging and the glass bottle to the silkiness of the oil in the bath, it is the perfect luxury bath product.
The Story Of Olverum
For many years Olverum survived by word of mouth – a cult product known in the UK to only a small number of passionate devotees. Olverum was originally created in 1931 by a wine merchant who became interested in aromatherapy. It has recently relaunched under new British ownership and is available to everyone to buy.
The Sunday Times Style Magazine described Olverum as ‘bath nirvana’, and it has just won the Tatler Beauty Awards 2018 ‘Best Bath Oil’ category.
I’ve been enjoying taking a bath over the last few days with Olverum, after feeling a bit frazzled and run down. A glass of red, a great book and candlelight have been restoring my energy. This bath caddy, by the way, is one of the best purchases I’ve made for my bathroom. It holds a book or tablet, glass of wine, your phone, a candle and your bath products.
Where To Buy It
Olverum’s main stockists are Liberty, Conran, Harvey Nichols and Fenwick.
The 125ml bottle is £32.00 and will be enough for 25 baths, and the 250ml bottle is £58 and enough for 50 baths. The travel set is £22 and enough for 9 baths.
Olverum truly is a beautiful product. If you want your bathroom to smell like a real spa, then this is the product for you.
