Give Seasonal Allergies the Sneeze...Naturally!
Finally, spring is here! Daffodils and crocuses are showing off their colors, and everyone is glad that winter is behind us. Well, almost everyone. Those with seasonal allergies are perhaps not so excited. Inquiries about seasonal allergy relief have started coming in, and I am reminded that in the South, pollen season is well under way. For the most part, the beautiful spring flowers are not the culprits when it comes to causing misery—the pollen from these plants is relatively large and they depend on insects, like bees, for pollination. But trees, like birch (pictured right), maple and alder, have tiny pollen that’s so small they do not...

Product Spotlight: Pomegranate Facial Care
Pomegranates are all over the place! The round red fruits have made quite a name for themselves recently as a must-have superfruit. Their precious, juicy red seeds are wonderful in yogurt, atop salads or added to guacamole. And now you can also find them in Weleda’s new Pomegranate Firming Facial Care! Maybe you noticed the new products in the red packaging on the shelves at your local Whole Foods or your favorite natural health food store? You might have wondered what this new line is all about.

Product Spotlight: Our New Cleansing Line
Honestly speaking, cleansing and toning have never played a big role in my daily facial care. For a long time, I thought a good facial cream (and my beloved Almond Soothing Facial Oil to remove eye makeup) were enough to keep my face looking its best.
