Many thanks to everyone who has joined us on Facebook and Twitter! We appreciate your support and all of your comments. Keep 'em coming! Here are some of our favorites Tweets and wall posts from March. Is yours here?   @turkeyvelez Skin dreams are made of Weleda products. Just ordered a bulk of it on sale, enough to last me and my honey for about a year. @peas4luck Have to tell you again how in love I am w/ Skin Food! Absolutely totally addicted. Amazing stuff! Love, love, love! @MamaAsh77 Your Calendula line for baby is wonderful for cradle cap. I got rid of Charlie’s by using the oil then combing it through the hair.   @ricebeanvintage...

Signs of Spring in our Gardens
Old man winter just won’t give up here! Just when we thought he was gone for good, he returned again. For nearly a week, we had sun and our ducks were running all over the garden, having fun and looking for something to eat. Then it snowed and we had to put them back in the greenhouse—at least for now, until it warms up again. In the Customer Center at Weleda Naturals, in Wetzgau, Germany, the telephone is ringing off the hook—a sure sign that spring is on the way. We are now booking sightseeing appointments for a special “Well-Being Tour” that we are offering in April, for groups of about 12 people each. Our guides take each group on a tour of our...

Retailer Spotlight - The Big Carrot in Toronto
With 50 owners and 200 employees, The Big Carrot in Toronto is one of the largest worker-owned co-ops in all of Canada. It’s grown quite a lot since it was founded in 1983, with just 12 members. Today, one of the store's greatest strengths is the accumulated knowledge and experience of its members and staff. The store maintains exacting standards, which have evolved through its 25 years of searching for nature’s finest—in both food and personal care. The Big Carrot stocks almost all of Weleda's skin and body care products, and they sell more of our products than any other store in all of Canada! The employees are well-versed in Weleda and can...

Best of Social Media: February
A big thanks to the many thousands of you who are now connecting with us on Facebook and on Twitter! I’m sure that, back in 1921, our company founders, Dr. Rudolf Steiner and Dr. Ita Wegman, could have never envisioned a day when we would engage with our fans in a digital world. But they believed in a personal approach to health care and wellness, so I think they would be happy knowing we are connecting with you and sharing our passion for beauty and wellness throughout the world, even if it's a virtual one. Weleda is about cultivating beauty with ingredients straight from the earth, and we're always trying to think up fresh ways we can...

Retailer Spotlight: Organica Natural Foods
The organic lifestyle is nothing new to John Marrone. In the late '70s, when he was just 25, he took a trip to California, where he was amazed by how many people shared his desire to live a natural, healthy life. He came back to New Jersey with a dream to open a store that would sell natural, nutritious foods for the whole body. He quickly turned that dream into a reality. In 1978, he opened Organica Natural Foods in Northvale, NJ, about 15 miles north of New York City. His brother Mark became his business partner one year later. Initially, Organica was a tiny store front, but it has since expanded three different times. It's now well-merchandised,...

An American in Germany
It’s hard to believe that it’s been just three weeks since I left Weleda North America to begin a six month stint working at Weleda AG in Germany. So far, the biggest difference I’ve noticed between Weleda AG and Weleda North America is the size of the offices. There are more than 1,000 employees working at our headquarters in Schwäbisch Gmünd, and only 30 in our office in Palisades, NY! Weleda is the top-selling natural skin care brand in Germany, but despite its large size, Weleda AG does not feel like a corporate giant. You get a feeling of life, of a living organism, when you are here. There are Koi ponds with turtles and plants everywhere, and...
