The amazing product from Kneipp that is helping with my Chronic Pain




I know the title of this post sounds a bit ominous, but im sure at some point in our lives we have all been through periods of muscle and joint aches and pains.




Kneipp Sparkling Bath Tablet Arnica


With me, due to suffering many illnesses, some which i'm happy to talk about now and others which I may do at some point, and being the kind of person that seems to stress about EVERTHING, lack of sleep and pain seem to go hand in hand. With regards to products I have just discovered to help aid with my insomnia, I will add the Link to the post HERE.

I have M.E ( Myalgic Encephalomyelitis), Fibromyalgia, Arthritis and some other illnesses, all of which are very debilitating. Now many people would not look at me and think I have any of those, I am one of those that can " Suffer in Silence". I have also come out the other side with a lot of it. I have been in wheelchairs,  had walking sticks, hospital, bed for months at a time and now, due to a collection of medication, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, stubbornness, positivity and inspiring my children, I can live a very different life. That's not to say it hasn't been hard, and everyone and every case is completely individual and different.  I know I have glossed over it, but its something I have dealt with for 15 years. However, I know I have alluded to another illness which i am not ready to talk about, but that diagnosis 4 years ago seemed to take over everything else and it was a life or death situation and you just find an inner strength you never knew you had.




Anyway, I have completely digressed and will probably delete all of the above, but basically I am someone that deals with pain. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. I know there are thousands of people out there that suffer everyday and it can be so hard to control and to some point, you get used to being in agony.




 A couple of weeks ago, I knew it was to much, I was tired, emotional, in pain, grumpy and needed to find something I could use at home. I love acupuncture and reflexology, but,  to be fair, it can be both expensive and time consuming. I think I have discovered something wonderful  and boy oh boy am I happy! My pain is everywhere but usually more so in my head, neck and shoulders, lumber region and legs. I had luckily been sent some samples to try of various things a while back  and lo and behold stumbled across a little gem.
Kneipp Sparkling Bath Tablet Arnica


Kneipp Joint & Muscle Sparkling Arnica Bath Tablet - I have a lot of love for Arnica based products especially the Intensive warming arnica gel from SBC, but sometimes it is so nice to just lie in a warm bath and wash away those stubborn aches and pains. This gorgeously, bright yellow effervescent bath tablet from Kneipp absolutely did that for me! Wow!  This was exactly what I needed. I am obviously not making any medical claims here whatsoever, everyone's level of pain is completely different from aching legs after a long walk to aching muscles due to illness, but for me this was perfect. This huge 80g bath tablet is designed to relive aching muscles and is also a natural anti-inflammatory.

This bath tablet feels and smells absolutely amazing. So easy to use, literally drop the tablet into a warm bath ( mine are always too hot! I know! I know!). and watch as it fizzes around and unveils a beautiful selection of colours and smells as the essential oils are released. Then lie back for at least 20 minutes and enjoy. Im not going to lie, it is quite a funny experience as the colours go through various shades of - wee'ing in the bath colour haha! The reason I mention this is I popped my tablet in the bath before I got in and my son and I were watching it and he said to me - "Euuurggghh it looks like you have wee'ed in the bath"  ( Which led on to a whole other conversation But that's 8 year olds for you!). Anyway, the end result is a beautiful bright, sunny, happy, yellow bath that you cannot help but feel calm and relaxed in. I love how the colour changes as the tablet melts. The scent is amazing, quite citrusy with a hint of herb in the background. It was beautiful. When I got out of the bath I was so surprised at how wonderfully soft my skin felt! I wasn't really expecting that as I was focussing so much on pain, but my skin felt so soft and conditioned. The next morning when I woke up I certainly felt in less pain, less achy and so much happier. I was absolutely thrilled by the results! Now as I have said I cannot make any medical claims or say the same will happen for you, but it really gave me some amazing pain relief. My eldest son who is an athlete loves these after training as they help ease his muscles. The only problem is I DONT HAVE ANYMORE!!! aarrrrgggggghhhhhh! You can purchase these Kneipp Sparkling Bath Tablets and more from the range  HERE and at £1.95 per tablet I am definitely stocking up.

  1. I will have to try these to see if they will help with my chronic pain, they sound fantastic. Arnica doesn't usually do anything for me (except the SBC Arnica & Black Pepper) but I love a bath so will have to try xx

  2. This looks really interesting and will have to give it a try. I am on daily morphine and still in pain so this may help - even if it takes the edge off the pain thanks Sharon. Sarah Hills

    I agree with "Bagpuss". I knew you had a few "issues" but never realised what you actually suffer from. You are one amazing lady to do all you do (and to look so glam whilst suffering). My hat is definitely off to you. As far as the product is concerned I am so glad it helped you and will recommend to other friends who have severe aches and pains. X

  5. Oh Sharon, you are doing fabulous! I hope 1 day soon I'll be able to cope with things the way that you seem to. Like you I have many conditions and some of them are similar to what you have mentioned, Pernicious Anaemia, CFS and Inflammatory Arthritis (linked to something else). I'm addicted to arnica too. Do you think this would be too strong to put in a foot bath? x
