100% origin and manufacture in the Pfitschtal, Burgum 2.000 meters

The SilberQuarzit® Mountain Hay Home Ritual offers the ideal relaxation after a strenuous day. Traditionally, the tart, spicy and flowery smelling hay has a purifying, detoxifying effect on your body. A little of it in the bathtub or even as a footbath allows the hay flowers to unfold an incomparable fragrance and an unbeatable effect. It also gently cleanses the skin and gives a soothing and regenerating feeling.

The daily touch with the elemental forces of nature succeeds most easily with these products. The secret of the founder is to select only raw materials of incomparably high quality.


Erwin Tötsch, agronomist and convinced organic hay producer:

” Located in the rugged mountain slopes of the main South Tyrolean Alpine ridge, the Burgumer Alm is situated at an altitude of over 2000 m above sea level. Our high-quality mountain hay grows here on mineral-rich soil, which contains 129 proven species of grasses, flowers and herbs. It is unique in its richness of species. The mountain meadow is carefully managed according to ecological, natural principles, and the hay is gently mown and dried in the traditional way. This allows medicinal herbs such as yarrow, lady’s mantle, mountain valerian, quender and arnica to develop their effects particularly well.

High-quality mountain hay has proven itself over centuries as a natural remedy. The aromatic scent has a beneficial effect on body and mind and supports relaxation and regeneration. The vital substances of mountain hay are especially effective in a hay bath.”


The SilberQuarzit® mountain hay bath consists of:

→ 500 grams of naturally pure and hand-harvested mountain hay from Burgum from over 2,000 metres above sea level.

→ 129 different herbs, grasses and flowers, many of which are traditionally and historically considered medicinal herbs such as Alpine goldenrod, true arnica, horsetail, cranberry, masterwort, mountain carnationwort, kidney vetch, yarrow, lady’s mantle, horned clover and St. John’s wort,


Ingredients (INCI)


The ingredients of SilberQuarzit Bergheus vary, because during the hay harvest of course no individual grasses are sorted, but the hay is harvested as a whole. All in all, it is a small, high-alpine meadow of splendour with countless different herbs, flowers and grasses, which, taken as a whole, has an above-average botanical occurrence. The natural harvest can vary in quality and quantity from year to year, as it happens in nature. In the high mountains, controlled organic cultivation makes no sense because the plants, grasses and flowers that naturally seek their own place of growth are inherently more resistant than controlled organic cultivation.


Growing wild at 2,000 metres above sea level is therefore the highest quality characteristic, in addition to the number of flowers, herbs and grasses.
