Herbal Kneipp Textiles

In the 19th century, German monk Sebastian Kneipp invented a holistic approach to health based on therapeutic plants such as peppermint, lemon balm and pine. To help us reconnect with nature in an increasingly urban environment, Alexandra Stück created a modern ritual that allows you to infuse textiles with these herbal essences. Just dissolve her aromatic powders in water and add a textile of choice, or her own specially designed linen. Moving or touching the textiles when dry releases the scents into the air. There is also a linen sports patch: body heat during exercise brings out the potent infusions inside.
