Getting to the Bottom of Cellulite
Summertime is officially here! Time for barbecues, beaches and … bathing suits. Instead of celebrating, many of us bemoan the return of bathing suit season because we worry about every little flaw, like those last few pounds or about the appearance of our cellulite. In fact, more than 90 percent of all women, encompassing all skin types, are reported to have cellulite. The good news is that it's not a medical concern but rather a question of aesthetics. It’s a prevalent skin condition that arises naturally, but we can also lessen its appearance naturally through a whole-body approach. By living a balanced lifestyle and following a comprehensive skin...

Arnica to the Rescue
It seems to be the same every year: Spring arrives, the days get longer, and I just can’t wait to get outside. For me, spring means the start of bicycling and rollerblading season. Even though hot yoga keeps me in shape during the winter months, the first bike ride of the season invariably brings with it some sore muscles. Fortunately, I have a well-stocked medicine cabinet (more on that in a future blog), so relief is not far away. For muscle pain, my preferred treatment is the Weleda homeopathic Arnica Ointment . It’s also very useful for sprains and bruises. Of course, I always make a resolution to stretch more, but I’ve definitely got room for...

Product Spotlight: Sea Buckthorn Hand Cream
Sea Buckthorn Hand Cream was one of the first Weleda products I ever tried, long before I even started working here. It’s still one of my favorites. I have a tube sitting right by my desk, and every time I put it on (like 10 times a day), it makes me smile. My colleagues are probably always wondering what’s so funny. The Sea Buckthorn Hand Cream has a light, uplifting citrus-y scent, courtesy of sun-drenched essential oils of orange, mandarin and grapefruit. It smells like a big bowl of tropical fruit salad. Even better than the way it smells, though, is the good it’s doing for my (and your!) hands. Biodynamic® sea buckthorn oil is chock-full of...

Natural Relief from Seasonal Allergies
It is beautiful outside! Almost everything is now in bloom, and the trees are showing off their brand-new, delicate leaves. It's the season of renewal, and most of us breathe in deeply, relieved that winter is behind us. However, not everyone shares this enthusiasm. Spring can also mean the beginning of allergy season. It is estimated that up to 20 percent of the adult population suffers from seasonal allergies, and the incidence in children is rising. With warm weather expected, the pollen forecast for Palisades, NY, where our office is located, is predicted to be very high. Already we've had a large number of inquiries about homeopathic treatments...

Best of Social Media: April
This month we had a contest on Facebook where we asked you—our fans and community—to tell us how you planned to nurture the earth in celebration of Earth Day. Here are some of our favorite posts! Julie Kenny  For birthdays, I`m going to give my family and friends the gift of saving the earth...a donation to their favorite environmental group, foundation, or organization. Jennifer McBride  From now on when I walk the neighborhood with my son, we are going to pick up trash along the way. I am also going to try my best to not use non-biodegradable disposable items and make an effort to use more reusable items. Nicky Russell  I’m going to A) Recycle as...

Spring Clean Your Beauty Routine
It’s the time of year to draw back your curtains, throw open the windows, let the fresh air in, and … get out the mop for the annual spring clean we all know so well. Although at Weleda, we don’t care so much about whether your baseboards are sparkling or your pillows are fluffed. What matters to us is whether your beauty cabinet is clean and healthy for you—meaning free of conventional personal care products that contain potentially toxic chemical ingredients. Mounting evidence shows that many of these substances, including triclosan, phthalates and parabens, can alter our bodies’ healthy functioning and seep into the environment. It’s the potential...
