I have been patiently bidding my time for the children to go to sleep tonight so I can enjoy a bit of 'me' time. A combination of pains as I get used to running, walking to work and standing up for a several hours at a time during exams has left my body very sore. There's only one thing I can focus on at the moment and that is getting into a hot bath for a soak. I'm taking this little bundle up with me.
The Pure Bliss range is designed to create a sense of well-being and relaxation using essential oils. My first experience of the Kneipp Pure Bliss Mineral Bath Salts was after my inaugural Couch to 5K run. I knew my knees and hips would hurt afterwards and the salt bath really helped the aches as well as helping me relax. I also feel that it prevented me from feeling as stiff the next day and I'm hoping it will do the same for me this evening.
There is an extra special bonus about the bath salts that I discovered the first time I used them. The salts turn the water poppy red. I realise I sound like a five year old now but jumping into bright red bath water is a lot of fun!
Back to the serious stuff. Kneipp bath products contain no parabens, paraffin, silicone or mineral oils. Not that I have one but the bath salts are also Whirlpool friendly. You will need to give the bath a quick rinse out after using the bath salts but I found the residual salts did rinse away very easily.
As well as the Mineral Bath Salts, I have been using the Pure Bliss shower gel for several weeks now. I really enjoy the scent: it's feminine without being overpowering and doesn't clash with other products that I use. It has a gentle lather and I find it leaves my skin clean without striping.
Right, I am off to run my bath and marvel at the red water whilst soaking my weary bones. I might even take a medicinal glass of wine with me! Kneipp products are available from www.victoriahealth.com, www.beautynaturals.com and other independent chemists. The Pure Bliss shower gel costs £4.45 and the Mineral Bath Salt costs £1.95 for a 60g sachet or £7.95 for a 500g jar.
