I used it with O when he was little and it seemed to work, though I combined it with a Vicks humidifier which made the room nice and steamy too.

I prefer Karvol to Olbas, i think i just prefer the smell is though. I used to put some drops on L's favourite dolly or blanket that she would always have with her during the day and then on a muslin cloth dangled in her cot at night to help her.

I used the battery operated olbas fan. You get pads soaked in olbas oil, and the fan circulates it. Worked really well for J.
