Tip of the day (Olbas Oil)

A favourite with Cyclo Cross and Track riders. They use Olbas Oil as a decongestant to clear their nasal passages.
One other great use for it is on strained muscles. Just rub it in and massage the area.
Funny it's one of the best products you can use , but if you have a look at their website they don't even mention it. Maybe I need to have a word with their marketing team, they're missing a trick here. If you read the label on the bottle it does tell you in the small print on the back. Nearly every pro rider and masseur carries a bottle.
As a decongesteant you can put some drops on a rolled up tissue paper and stick them up yout nose to breath through or do what the cross and track riders do just put a few drops on your tongue.
