In the past few months, I’ve gotten the pleasure of getting to know this wonderful company called Kneipp. I love the story of who they are and why they are and I adore their products. What they offer is natural products based on the holistic philosophy of Sebastian Kneipp.
Sebastian Kneipp was a naturopath and priest and when he was younger he had an extreme case of tuberculosis. Happening to stumble across a hydrotherapy book, he decided to immerse himself every so often into the freezing waters of the Danube river. With those sudden shocks to his system, he actually strengthened it and even put his tuberculosis into remission! Because of this, Sebastian decided to dedicate his life to utilizing the healing properties of water.
As Sebastian got older, he made friends with a pharmacist who also believed in naturopathy and they created products from natural plant extractions and created products that Kneipp to-this-day uses as a basis in their products. Kneipp has been manufacturing health and wellness products since 1891! Their main site is actually in Germany but they’ve got employees world-wide.
Here are some of their products: Enjoy Life Bath with May Chang & Lemon – Said that it is mood-improving, refreshing and uplifting 🙂 This has Sunflower seed oil, Lemon peel, May Chang and Citronella oil. May Chang is a citrus-y smelling evergreen that is mostly found in China and Indonesia. Sources say it is antibiotic, anti-infectious, and anti-inflammatory. This fragrance will lift your spirits. I find that citrus smells are invigorating and help you feel at ease. If you know how much I love cleaning, you know I love the smell of clean. lol . This makes your skin feel soft, too. 🙂
Soft Skin Bath with Almond Blossom – This is for both dry and sensitive skin. I’ve got both, unfortunately. The fortunate news is that this contains:
- Almond Oil – Rich in A, B, and E vitamins and is great for your skin! It’s super moisturizing and anti-inflammatory.
- Guaiacwood Oil – Used as a fragrance and has notes that are honey, floral, and woody. Used as aromatherapy it is anti-inflammatory, stress-relieving, and a lymphatic decongestant.
- Orange Flower Extract – Smells amazing and is soothing.
Stress-Free Bath with Mandarin & Orange – Contains Mandarin Orange Peel and Orange Peel. I think it smells really nice. I love how this foams in the bathtub. (Not to say this is a bubble bath. It’s not.) It also dilutes in the bathtub. There are directions on the bottle but you can pour in what you’d like. The only thing I’d be careful of is that it does have dye in it and will semi-dye your hands if it gets straight on them haha. Other than that, very relaxing and smells wonderful. Not too strong of a fragrance.
Anti-Callus Salve with Calendula and Rosemary – Contains Jojoba oil, Beeswax, Rosemary, Orange Oil, and Carnauba Wax. I really wanted to try this on my husband and see what his results are. He walks all day long with a 60 lb camera in his hands so this would be perfect for him. But, I tried it on myself and it was extremely moisturizing. I didn’t love the smell, but hey, if it works , it works! 🙂 I’ll have to experiment on my husband soon lol.
Jojoba Massage Oil – Contains Jojoba, Primrose, Avocado, Cymbopogon Martini , and Cinnamomum Cassia(Cinnamon) Leaf Oils. Loved this oil. It’s very moisturizing, it smells nice (not too overwhelming) and it’s very relaxing. Smells sort of Christmas spice-y but not super strong. My husband and I used to go to a massage school and get massages but since we moved, we haven’t had the chance to get a massage. We’ve taken turns using this and it’s super relaxing. 🙂 I would totally recommend buying this for yourself but also for a relaxing go-to for your spouse or loved-one. Trust me, they’ll love you.
So far, I’m totally impressed with Kneipp. They have great products for all different circumstances and their products are of great quality.
