Leinau bath salts
A specialty of the Cistercian monks of St. Severin, besides soap boiling, is the production of these extraordinary bath salts. They contain only natural ingredients: Their basis is evaporated salt, and an addition of powdered oatmeal gives the bath water a milky consistency. For use, add about two tablespoons to the bath water.
The monks of St. Severin
Since spring 2010, the three religious of Abtei St. Severin have been living, praying and working in the former Bundeswehr radar school on the fresh, sunny (sometimes foggy) plateau above Kaufbeuren in the Bavarian Allgäu. They had to give up their former home in Leinau, which they had only rented, after a change of ownership. The monks belong to the ecumenical Cistercian order of Port Royal. In the 17th century, the name stood for a pious movement around Jansenism. This little spiritual ship never completely sank, even though it swayed vigorously back and forth between idea and deed and denominations, until it resumed monastic sailing in 1946. And why should it not be understood symbolically that the monks have now found their harbor under a sea mark of aviation? They earn their living by offering spiritual courses and, above all, by making soaps, other body care products and spice mixtures. It's work that fits well with the monastic seclusion, requiring not so much large machinery and equipment as concentration and attention to detail.
