Volatile Oils in Combination
By Frederick Damrau, MD.
"The use of seven essential
oils together, instead of a single oil, provides an
example of combination therapy. Synergism is utilized
to secure the summation of the desirable effects of
several drugs, while the side actions are not increased
in proportion, or may even be neutralized."
"Clinical studies in
Switzerland indicate that the combination of seven
essential oils in one medication produces a synergistic
potentation of therapeutic action; a reduction of
undesirable irritating effects; and an overlapping
of results in different time periods, with both prompt
and prolonged response."

"Olbas causes a lasting
change in metabolism which results in a general stimulation
of the healing process of the organism."
"An important part
among the components of Olbas is played by the terpenes,
which are also primarily responsible for the relief
the medicament brings in affections of the respiratory
organs. Olbas is a most effective expectorant which
helps to loosen tough, clinging secretions in cases
of catarrhal affections, bronchitis.."
Dr. H. Keller,
Cademario, Switzerland - "I have
been using Olbas for some six years and my patients
are full of praise for the magnificent results."
Hanover - "...Thus Olbas can be used
in any complaint, effecting, in some cases by itself,
a rapid recovery, or it can be used in conjunction
with other healing methods and especially herbs, as
it is capable of very quickly soothing aches and pains.
It is, therefore, an ideal household remedy, which
should be found in every family."
