Information about bathing water among the Red Dao people

I don’t know when and where it started, but generations of Red Dao people here have passed on a wonderful traditional herbal bath that makes anyone who has ever experienced it fascinated and excited.

It can be said that bathing with medicinal leaves is one of the specialties of Sapa. This remedy to mix in the bath water originates from the Red Dao people, so people still call it Sapa red-knife bathing. This is an esoteric male remedy of the Dao people that only you can experience when you come to Sapa.

How is red knife bath water used?

This bath remedy must use many herbs. Usually, a small bath must have more than 10 types and more than 120 herbs. Depending on the type of herb, the processing method will be different; some are dried or roasted, while others must be left fresh.

Depending on the amount of bath water, local people will take more or less medicine. The medicine is boiled continuously for 3–4 hours, giving off a reddish-brown juice with a sweet aroma. Bath water must be kept at a temperature of 30 to 37 degrees Celsius to be effective.

After thorough cooking, the medicinal water is poured into a wooden tub. Guests just need to soak in the tub, relax their bodies, and enjoy the aroma of herbs.

Taking a bath with Sapa herbs helps you to relax your muscles and bones, circulate blood, detoxify the body, dispel fatigue, relieve joint pain, lower high blood pressure, and especially help with sedation and peace of mind.
