I've never tried it but I don't see the harm, as long as you aren't allergic to the various ingredients. It doesn't look like an expensive product:

I suffer from allergic rhinitis but have never used it for that. I'm not sure it would work. However, I always use it when I have a cold and it does clear the nasal passages. You can apply the oil around the nose area, put a bit on your pillow at night (so you breathe it in while sleeping) or even add some to your bath water.

Storm - is it a bit like Vick's Vaporub and the Vick's Inhaler - only with more ingredients? (Do they have Vick's in the UK - http://www.vicks.com/vaporub.php ?)

It does sound more like it is promoted for colds, and not allergic rhinitis, from what the Olbas website says.

Hi Karen,

Yes we do have Vicks in the UK. Olbas oil is better because it's all natural (a special mixture of pure plant oils, with ingredients including clove oil, eucalyptus, juniper berry and cajuput). Vicks Vaporub is a thick ointment whereas Olbas is an oil that is easy to apply.
