Back in the 19th century, Sebastian Kneipp (1821-1897), a naturopath and priest managed to cure himself of a life threatening case of tuberculosis using the very nature around him, combining with cold and hot water therapies (hydrotherapy).

 

  At the time, the disease was often fatal, but Sebastian Kneipp came across an eighteenth-century book about hydrotherapy that inspired him to immerse himself several times a week in the icy Danube River.

 

These brief exposures to cold water seemed to strengthen his immune system, sending his disease into remission.

Miraculously cured, he began his quest to provide all people a simple plan to improve and maintain good health with the healing powers of water combined with plants and herbs. Sebastian was famously known as a healer. Thousands of people visited him in the foot hills of the German Alps to learn his naturopathic methods and to be "cured".

Sebastian Kneipp became friends and close partners with a Würzburg pharmacist who shared his conviction using naturopathic medicine and healing remedies.

 

Using only natural plant essences and pure ingredients as a base, they created the formulas that still live on today in an extensive range of bath and body treatments, now with an international cult following.

 

 

Kneipp®- is made in Germany, with caring and holistic methods.
