“Nature has provided us generously with everything we need to remain in good health”
– Sebastian Kneipp
Back in the 19th century, Kneipp founder Sebastian Kneipp managed to cure himself of a severe case of tuberculosis, which was usually fatal back then, by submerging himself in icy cold water. He started experimenting with preventative and curative concepts and began using natural plant essences and pure ingredients as a base for his healing products. Each product has been created using the finest ingredients nature has to offer. From the purest natural herbs to the exfoliating and toning Thermal Spring Bath Salts, sourced from Europe’s last remaining salt works ‘Saline Luisenhall’ in Germany. All products are made in Germany with care and holistic methods – no paraffin, silicones or mineral oils are added.
Hydrotherapy (water cures) is the application of warm but primarily cold water. It is perhaps one of the oldest forms of treatment. Even in ancient Rome, it was used with success. However, hydrotherapy was forgotten for a long time. Sebastian Kneipp was the man who first rediscovered the beneficial effects of water applications and added his own findings. And still, to this day, hydrotherapy is used to prevent and treat acute and chronic conditions.
The benefits of using Kneipp products in the bath include a sense of well-being, muscle relaxation, stimulation of metabolism, steadying of body warmth, regulation of blood pressure, activation of the immune system and improved circulation of the skin!

I took a bath in the Lavender herbal bath oil which I wallowed in for around 30 minutes. Even with only a small amount of oil, the fragrance diffused throughout my entire bathroom and changed the water to an amazing blue colour. It was perfectly relaxing! I loved the scent, which was extremely soothing. The water did not feel greasy, just soft. Another bonus was that the water drained perfectly, leaving no oily ring or mess like you may experience with bath bombs or other bubble baths. My skin felt amazingly baby smooth afterwards.

I used the Red Poppy & Hemp Pure Bliss Salts which have a sweet yet herbal, soothing aroma. When I added the salts into the water a pleasant aroma filled the room, helping me to switch off & relax. Overall, you get a sense of serenity and peace. If that is not enough, Kneipp Pure Bliss Bath Salts also feature Hemp which gently softens and hydrates the skin whilst you soak. This makes it perfect for targeting muscle ache, de-stressing after a busy day and generally preparing you for a lovely nights sleep.
