As we all know, one of the hottest trends at the moment is Hygge (pronounced hue-guh not hoo-gah), which is a Danish word used when acknowledging a feeling or moment, whether alone or with friends, at home or out, ordinary or extraordinary as cosy, charming or special.


I was recently sent some bath oils called Olverum which have been described as ‘Hygge’ in a bottle, it can help aid stress, anxiety and many other things – which I have a lot of! Apparently you just put a splash of this bath oil in your bath and you’re meant to be transported to a land of rest and relaxation – sounds great right? As a bath lover and an owner of a variety of bubble baths and bath bombs I was excited to try something a little different, so I put anyway the other bath essentials and pulled out a small bottle of Olverum.


Smelling of pine and lavender, Olverum is 48% pure essential oils and blends Siberian Fir Needle, Exotic Verbena, Rosemary, Juniper, Lemon Peel, Lavender, Lavandin, Lime, Lime, Eucalyptus and Geranium. I can honestly say it was a wonderful experience, the essential oil moisturise and leave skin soft but are also perfect for easing sore muscles.


I would definitely recommend this product, you only need to put a dash in, no more than a capful and I can’t wait to try the oils again!
