I love these products!!!but this mixes so nicely.
The little baths give you 2-3 baths if you use a little. The smells are amazing I love it! Another nice bonus is that they're not foody or flowery (not most of them, anyway), so my husband enjoys using them as much as I do---his favorites are pine and eucalyptus (both guaranteed to knock your socks off with a *strong* scent).
These are expensive (4-7 dollars each) but hey, SO WORTH IT!

I mis-bought these really, because I expected something more oily and definitely something more natural.
I purchased the little set of 6 20ml bottles of different 'herbal bath treatments', from a website that purports to specialise in 'natural' products.
Well.... these bath liquids contain SOOOO much artificial colourings - FD&C Yellow, Blue etc.. that I was actually gobsmacked by just setting eyes on the bottles! I've never seen a toiletries/body product so deeply and concentratedly coloured in my life, EVER!
I'm telling you, they look very pretty because of the colours but they are basically like bottles of ink or food colouring. If you're after 'low-chemical' products, these are NOT for you.
Also a bit confused by the 'no artificial fragrance' tag on the website but noticably not on the actual product or packaging - 'parfum (fragrance)' is listed on those, with no explanation of what that actually is. (?)
Apparently they have 'approx 30%' natural essential oils - great. All I know is that my hands started itching in the bath (2 little capfuls used in full bath, 1 each of the poppy/hemp one and the stress one) and I could literally HEAR how drying to the skin this stuff is, in the thin layer of foam on the water around me.
The bottles say each one does 1 or 2 baths. What??!! I intend to get maybe 15 out of each of these if I continue using them, due partly to the high concentration of the colours and because of how drying the stuff is.
The smell is strong enough to do that anyway.
Sitting here now, after my bath and applying handcream, the ends of my fingers feel so DRY!
The products actually carry instructions about how hot the water can be and how long you should stay in it. You are advised to 'rinse with warm water to remove residue' - I'm not sure if this means the bath (which 'may be slippery' - really? these aren't oily!) or the body. With all these frankly scary instructions, I made sure to rinse myself off with clean water afterwards!
So - any positives?
They smell strong, and hopefully that's from the essential oils.
They were relatively cheap - just under £9 for the set of 6.
They ARE very pretty to look at - all those lovely deep colours!
The little bottles are good quality glass ones with screw tops and that's why I've said I would buy these again - I intend to use them to make my own natural bath oil mixtures once they're empty - for myself and for presents. I'm not sure if I'll end up using the products they presently contain or if I'll just tip them out and rinse the bottles to make my own.
Incidentally, the 'Lavender' Kneipp bath for instance - it's got approx. 30% lavender oil in it? Well, a 10ml bottle of pure essential lavender oil is cheap - 6 drops in the bath and you'll get the same effect and it's all natural! Substance over marketing.... ;)
It probably costs not much less than what I paid to buy these kinds of glass bottles on their own, so I haven't really lost out monetarily.
I see that Kneipp is highly thought of and lots of good reviews, this is just all my own experience and opinion for what it's worth!
Happy bathing whatever you use! :)

Don't flinch at the cost- these are the best bath oils on the market.
I've tried to get away with less expensive bath products, but always come back to Kneipp. The scents are potent, and hyper-real. I especially like Rosemary, and find that while it's touted as being invigorating, works wonderfully at night.

I used to work at a beauty supply store and employees got a lot of free samples. These were always pure awesomeness. They smell wonderful and are relaxing. They are harder to find these days and kind of expensive. I think these would also make wonderful gifts.

Aaahhhh...Dreamy dreamy dreamy!!! I've used Melissa and Orange Linden Blossom for over 10 years when my body gets tight and a 30 minute bath with one of these wonderful aromas is like a massage in a bottle!!! (Well, maybe not quite, but...!) Amazingly effective - turn on the hot water, open the bottle, take several DEEEEEP inhales, pour in a capful, and voila! Lie back and fade away into dreamyland (no sleeping please!). I give my head, face, and neck a massage while deep breathing, and then off to bed for a great night's sleep. I cannot recommend these enough! Aroma is quite potent, but natural and made in Germany. They also have lotions, shower gels, etc. Do yourself a relaxing favor and try it!

My favorite is spruce. It is so rejuvenating and makes my bathroom smell wonderful. I pour a dollop into a hot bath and all my muscle aches seem to fade slowly away and I feel more relaxed. It is a green fluid which colors your bath water the same but it doesn't stain my tub. I do use a lot so a bottle does get used up quickly for me. I tried the tabs but will stick to the bottle versions. Lavender is my second favorite followed by Rosemary.

All the bath oils are amazing and highly potent -- A simple capful in the tub will scent the entire room for the ultimate spa fragrance- The bath itself will be healing and wonderful for a variety of conditions, especially if you follow the directions to stay in the water for 20 minutes. I am not a big fan of the bath salts becuase after experiencing the bath oils, nothing seems to compare...in the same line or in any other product line.

I love these. They smell so natural and earthy, like you're actually outdoors. They also make my skin soft. The juniper and eucalyptus are both great for sore muscles. The lavender is amazing. I love them all though and I think you can't go wrong with any of them.

The eucalyptus bath salts made a heap of chest congestion disappear! Like magic! So I splurged on the set of ten little bottles and so far have bathed in the Sensual Bliss one which smelled great in the bottle but had no smell at all in the tub.
Apparently one scent can be great and others not so much.
Those eucalpytus bath salts are the BOMB for making the entire bathroom smell like an expensive spa for at least an hour, LOVE it.
The other scents I'm not too sure about. I prefer the salt versions of these over the oil ones. Those have so much coloring in them.
The salts are white and clear in the water.
The Arnica and the Valerian and Hops ones stink to me but I will try them anyway. In fact out of the ten bottles four of them stink.
Many of them smell identical to the eucalyptus. The juniper one smells great. I might get a jar of the orange bath salts since I love the scent of oranges.
These are expensive but impressive. Not all smell good though so it takes some investigating.

I have Herbal Bath in Rosemary and it is the best. I love this stuff. Really good and strong scent product.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium, Cool Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
These are probably my HG bath products of all time! My favorites are the hops, lavender, and rosemary. I sleep like a baby after using the hops. The lavender is immensely relaxing, and the rosemary is refreshing and invigorating, great to use for a morning bath. These little gems are hard to find though. I have not been able to find them anywhere in Nashville and have to order them online. If you are a bath addict like me, you have to try these and you'll be hooked.

These are DREAMY. The scents are so true they are almost hyper-real. You only need to use a small amount to have the scent alllllll over the bathroom and you once you get in and relax. These are such high quality it is amazing. One of the best hostess gifts ever, and a nice thing to have in the guest bath for guests staying over to indulge with!

I have been using Kneipps since 1995,,,and have never found anything better! It totally changes my mood after a bath...lavender for calming, hops for sleep, rosemary for a quick pick me up:) Here in the States, it is hard to find and expensive. In Germany it is only $6.00 a bottle...lucky for me I have friends who travel there a couple times a year and pick up several bottles for me!

I really enjoy the lavender bath. It as a strong, brisk scent. It does not dry my skin, but is not moisturising, either.

I love these! I've bought three boxes of them, and that's unusual for me, especially for a bath product. The smell is very strong and convincingly purely herbal, and I never worry that they're bad for my skin. I usually use them when I'm feeling weary or headachy or sick with a cold or my muscles ache. I love the little bottles. I also consider it very cool that the company and their products go back to the nineteenth century and were/are considered a legitimate cure (which is actually how I use them, come to think of it.) I took an adult religious education class on the nineteenth century roots of today's liberal religion and spirituality, and Kniepp was in there... there was a practice called "Kneipping" in which people would go out on the lawn with bare feet and walk in the dew for health. And of course, I raised my hand and said I use his bath products.

Oh my goodness, I love Kneipp! My sister lives in Germany and I got hooked on these when she first made me the perfect bath after crazy travel. I've kinda been loving the Eucalyptus Cold & Flu Herbal Bath liquid, but not only in winter when I have a cold but also in summer or whenever regardless of how good/bad I feel physically, surprisingly! It makes a cool green/blue bath water, cooling but warming sensory experience. So nice. I've also bought the Spruce Energizing Herbal Bath one over and over, there's something about the green ones! :) Not a fan of Lavender so can't say much else. These are such a treat for a truly pampering bathing experience.

I haven't used or thought about these for a long time, but the winter cold had me longing for them again! When I was a teenager I saved my money for them at a little bath shop in the mall and I loved them. They were worth every penny to me, especially the spruce and the orange linden blossom. The scents are subtle; but that doesn't mean you can't smell them. They smell natural and beautiful, and the colors of the liquids are wonderful for relaxing you, too. I haven't found these in a long time, but they are great for winter.

I would say this product is just alright. To me, the scents weren't strong enough for me to feel relaxed, but the treatment is great for your skin. Some scents are better than others, so choose wisely.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Combination Hair: Silver Eyes: Brown
My favourite herbal bath I have used them all for many years, whenever I travel to Germany I buy there they have a few more scents available.
Also the lavender is great for kids so they become sleepy just use less then normal quantity like half or even a third amount.Contains essential oils makes for lovely herbal scented soothing relaxing baths.

I took a bath in the lavender herbal bath about 30 minutes ago. I showered first as I was instructed to by the saleswoman. I used about half of the little bottle, even though my bath tub is huge and seats three people. Even with only half the small bottle I got enough oil to really fragrance my entire bathroom and change my water into this amazing blue color. It was a perfect bath!
I loved the scent, so relaxing and soothing. The water did not feel greasy, just soft. My tub drained perfectly, no oily ring... looks shiny and new without rinsing.
I am dressed now and running my hands over my legs all I can say is WOW! I have never had skin this soft without using any lotion! Its perfect!
