Anyone of a certain age will remember the absolute thrill of a bath cube – when those little fragrant bricks hit your bathwater they transformed it into something entirely more exciting. Bath cubes used to come in sets, very often, so you could swamp yourself with a cloud of the matching talc afterward if you wanted to! If you do remember those cubes, you’ll also remember being a bit gritty to the rear as well – they never did quite dissolve fully!
The Kneipp spin on a bath cube is a bath tablet – a large disc full of fizz that focusses more on wellbeing than glamour. These could not have arrived in a more timely way – there was no blog on Sunday because I was pole-axed by a horrible virus; went to bed on Friday afternoon and didn’t get up til Sunday having coughed my way through a temperature, aching limbs and finally pulling a stomach muscle so I could barely move. I know! Rubbish! But, I did manage to ease myself into a hot bath using the Kneipp Cold Season Bath Tablet that gave off a nice waft of eucalyptus and definitely eased aches. I found it soothing, if not medicinal, and felt I was being a bit more pro-active in helping myself feel better, if not actually really feeling better!
The Kneipp Sparkling Bath Tablets aren’t new, but there are a couple of recent additions to the range in the shape of Lavender for balancing and Red Poppy for relaxation. I think it’s nice to have them for those ‘moments’ when you want to upgrade a bath into something a little bit more caring. But you’ll still get a bit of a gritty seat – even after all these years, that’s something that hasn’t been solved! They’re £1.95 each.
