To our founder, Sebastian Kneipp (pronounced Kuh-nipe, like “type”), water was everything. In fact, he was known as the “Water Doctor” in Europe, pioneering hydrotherapy and holistic healing 130 years ago. People came from far and wide seeking his healing expertise and that tradition continues today. Only now, you can experience it in the soothing comfort of your very own bathtub.
Sebastian often said, “Nature has provided us generously with everything we need to remain in good health,” so, he embarked on a mission to find the most restorative plants, like Arnica, Valerian and Lavender, and pure, mineral-rich salts. He found the salts in Göttingen, Germany at the historic Saline Luisenhall. You’ll find them in all Kneipp Bath Salts to this very day, in your very own soothing bath.
Sebastian Kneipp's insights into the healing power of nature and the interplay of the five pillars, water, plants, exercise, nutrition and balance, are still the foundation of the Kneipp® brand today. We see it as our task to preserve Kneipp's legacy and to transport it into today.
We are convinced that his philosophy is more relevant than ever.
