hay bath facing the nature The Alpe di Siusi is the widest mountain pasture of Europe. Its hay contains special properties, discovered since the 19th century by local farmer : exhausted by the labour in the fields, they slept in the mountain pastures and woke up the next morning, well-rested with greater energy. The secret spead quickly and the hay bath became sacred.

Researchers and scientists found that the hay contained exceptional medicinal and cosmetic properties. A Michelin starred restaurant in Merano went much further by creating a surprising and flavourful hay sorbet, for curious foodies.

It is in the same creative location, laid on mountain sides and surrounded by a wild grass park, that the fresh herb massage is provided. Plants are harvested in the morning and the ointment is prepared at the time of the application. A well kept secret for a development of the composition which took two years.
