Product Spotlight: Cold Cream
Imagine a cream that could protect your face from icy winter air and keep your skin smooth, moisturized and beautiful. Sounds like a dream? It isn’t! Formerly known as Everon® Face Balm, our re-launched Cold Cream—coming to a retailer near you this month—is the one thing you should definitely not be without this winter. I recently stumbled upon Cold Cream when I first started my internship here at Weleda North America, and I was amazed by its creamy, rich texture and how smooth it felt on my skin. I tested it right away by taking a long walk through the park on a cold winter’s day, and I was amazed afterward to find my...

Stay Well Tips From Our Compounding Pharmacy
Fall arrived in earnest here in the Northeast. Most of the trees have already dropped their leaves, and nature seems to be winding down for a period of rest. This is very much in contrast with all the activity in our compounding pharmacy, which is located in the very same building as our North American headquarters in Palisades, NY. During late fall and winter, we receive many prescriptions for our homeopathic cold and flu remedies. A product that is frequently ordered  is our Eucalyptus/Archangelica comp ointment. This homeopathic ointment is suitable for both children and adults. Applied to the chest and back, it helps with chest congestion and...

Guest Post from Natural Makeup Artist Jessa Blades
We've been a fan of organic beauty consultant and makeup artist Jessa Blades for a long time. She's committed to making women look their best, without sacrificing personal well-being. She uses only the best natural and organic products available (like Weleda!) to help her clients steer clear of dangerous chemicals and toxins. She wrote a guest post for us about her recent trip to Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture. This summer I had the opportunity to visit Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture up the Hudson in Pocantico Hills, NY, to talk to the staff there about my work as an organic beauty consultant...

Ingredient Spotlight: Organic Sweet Almond Oil
The taste of sweet almond stirs up all kinds of memories; it makes me think of fall, of long walks in the park, colored leaves, a cup of tea, of a cozy fireplace and the taste of homemade cookies. Definitely, the almond is fall’s child. Weleda’s organic sweet almond is grown in the hills of a Valencian community close to Alicante, Spain. In this warm climate, the almond trees are pampered by sunshine all year long. In spring, the sweet almond trees blossom, in shades of white and pink, and by fall, when it’s starting to get colder outside, the sweet almond nuts are shaken from the trees and left on the ground to dry. Before winter...

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...

The Value of Weeds
In the spring and summer, when the plants in our Biodynamic® gardens are flourishing, so are the weeds! Weeding is very important for us this time of year. Left unchecked, the weeds will compete with our cultivated plants for water, nutrition and light. They can also introduce and spread plant diseases. But even though they do battle with our plants, we don’t like to call them “weeds,” because that is such a negative word. In fact, while we may not harvest them, many of the weeds that pop up in our fields also have positive characteristics and effects, including well-known medicinal capabilities. The chemical herbicides that are so often used in...
