ACTIVE HERB: Juniper
Muscle Soother - Natural pain relief helps improve circulation and relieves muscle tension.
This concentrated bath treatment is soothing for tired and sore muscles. This herb formed the legendary "magic wreath" which Romans used to ward off evil spirits. Juniper, an evergreen shrub, helps rid the body of toxins and stimulates circulation. It also relieves tension and stress. Juniper is known to have an anti-inflammatory effect. Use Juniper after sports or any strenuous activity where you are anticipating sore muscles or tiredness due to over-exertion.
Usage: Use one capful of Kneipp Herbal Bath Oil for each bath. For best results, bathing time should never exceed 15 to 20 minutes. Most Kneipp bath therapy starts with water that is body temperature or slightly warmer (98.6°-104°F). Sleep inducing, relaxing baths should be a little cooler, (97°-98°F) and it is advisable to take a warmer bath (102°-104°F) with the onset of a cold or when suffering from rheumatism. Never bathe if you have a fever, and baths that are too hot put a strain on the circulatory system. A foot bath or partial bath is recommended when suffering from cardiac conditions or cold and flu. After a bath, replenish skin by massaging the body with Kneipp Body Lotion or Body Oil. This helps the skin to regain its natural pH balance and form a protective layer.
