Directions for Use: 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.

Very uplifting and energizing, spruce has been considered opening and elevating. It is very helpful for low energy, chest congestion and cold hands and feet. Take a Spruce soak when you feel congested and lethargic or need to warm the body thoroughly. Spruce can also be helpful when you have aches and pains in joints.
Sebastian Kneipp was born in 1821 in the Bavarian region of Germany. His ambition in life was to be a priest, but his plans were waylaid when he fell ill to pulmonary tuberculosis--at that time a fatal disease--during his theological study. As fate would have it, he stumbled upon a book on hydrotherapy. After taking multiple short immersions in the cold waters of the Danube River, he soon found that it caused the illness to go into remission, allowing him to complete his studies.
After his experience, Kneipp wrote a book called 'My Water Cure,' (1886) which took Germany by storm and quickly became a best-seller. Kneipp believed that the physical and mental stresses of everyday life often lead to physical or spiritual overloading, which can be effectively countered by a changeover to a natural lifestyle. He continued his studies into alternative approaches to health and eventually developed an entire system and philosophy of natural healing and wellness. The products bearing his name reflect this philosophy.
