The “Emser Pastille” – a story of success beyond compare. For more than 150 years the pastilles have been on everyone’s lips and they are the proper medicine when it comes to the well-being of the throat and the voice. Vocalists, announcers and voice therapists favour it, too.
In the 19th century a gentleman from Paris suggested to the duke’s officials that they should use the thermal water to make pastilles out of it. But he was laughed at. But his landlord a doctor and a chemist took up this proposal and set to work. In spring 1858 the first “Emser Pastille” was pressed. Even then experts attributed the pastilles a wide effect against many respiratory diseases, that met with the approval of the duke. 55,000 boxes of pastilles were sold until 1865. But the producers had to fight many adversities: The targeted perfection in producing the pastilles could not be reached easily and the success caused a number of copyists. Constant modifications in the process of vaporization and newest technical progress finally lead to the product rich in tradition – the Emser Pastille.
The “Emser Pastille” was followed by numerous products containing “Natural Emser Salt”, e.g. the Emser nasal spray and the Emser nose salve. The “Natural Emser Salt” contains more than 20 different mineral salts, trace elements and anti-inflammatory ions, which support the important endogenous immune system and thus may prevent diseases of the respiratory tracts. Meanwhile the “Natural Emser Salt” is a reliable medicine in case of sore throat, cough, hoarseness and all kinds of respiratory diseases.
“Emser Salt” is fundamentally different to conventional salt. To obtain 1 gram of “Natural Emser Salt” 350 millilitres spring water have to be evaporated - an expenditure which is worthwhile. Contrary to common salt or sea salt the “Natural Emser Salt” contains more than 20 different mineral salts, trace elements and above all anti-inflammatory ions, which support the important endogenous immune system and thus prevent diseases of the respiratory tracts.
