The story of Olverum is as rich and rare as the oil itself, involving a family secret carried for decades, with several lifetimes of passion and specialist knowledge. But this is a story in itself and one we urge you to visit www.olverum.com to read, because this is my story – of the difference Olverum Bath Oil and Body Oil has made to my skin and that of an elderly relative.
Olverum is vegan and cruelty free, free from artificial preservatives, fragrance and colourants, silicone, mineral oils, petrolatum, sulphates, phthalates, parabens, triclosan and any animal derived ingredients. I was also advised that this is a rich, nourishing therapeutic oil which absorbs quickly yet provides moisturisation. Perfect to try on the legs and arms of an elderly relative who suffered from thin, very dry, crepe skin which was prone to bruising and excessive itching.
For one whole week I added a few drops of the bath oil to her bath and massaged the body oil daily into her skin and the very first comment she made was, “This feels like silk, it’s lovely.” Ok, good start, on top of which the aroma of the natural essential oils was simply delicious; it smells full of goodness and seemed to be feeding my hands and nails too.
After only 2 days of application, the difference in the skins texture, especially on her arms and legs was obvious and the itching had completely disappeared! My hands also looked different, younger, healthier and my nails had obvious growth. After the full week I needed a manicure and the manicurist asked what I had been using as my nails had never looked so good!
To be honest, in the week of reviewing these products, I also started to use the bath oil and body oil daily myself and have never been so delighted with the results of skin products. This had been a unique and extremely rewarding experiment for me. We receive so many products to review but the fact that Olverum Bath Oil and Olverum Body Oil had such a positive impact on aged, problem skin as well as the benefits I experienced with my own skin and nails, coupled with the beautiful fragrance, makes these products stand out as a ‘hero products’ and ones which I shall never be without.
Olverum Body Oil is a sublimely aromatic formulation, expertly crafted with over 30 essential and cold press botanical oils, including antioxidant rich raspberry seed oil and Alaria esculenta extract, which is known to boost the synthesis of collagen, preserving skins elasticity.
Olverum Bath Oil is 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 natural self.
Although the striking packaging – intended to reflect the quality and impeccable attention to detail which defines the products – is new, the oil remains true to its original formula. While the recipe has stood the test of time for over eight decades, be assured that Olverum is a new word in aromatherapeutic luxury!
