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...

Product Spotlight: Pomegranate Body Oil
In my last blog, I wrote about the benefits of Rosemary Hair Oil and how it pampers your hair. But nourishing natural oils aren’t just good for your hair—they’re also beneficial for your skin! Especially now, with the November air growing colder, our skin needs extra nourishment to make it through the winter healthy and beautiful, despite heated office buildings and harsh winter winds. Weleda’s Pomegranate Regenerating Body Oil nurtures and smoothes our skin, while protecting it from skin-damaging free radicals. Its mix of organic jojoba, sesame and sunflower oils, combined with powerful organic pomegranate seed oil, makes it...

Product Spotlight: Rosemary Hair Oil
In all the years I’ve been using Weleda products, the small, green bottle containing Rosemary Hair Oil never found its way into my shopping bag—until recently. Once I discovered it, I fell in love with yet another Weleda product! Here’s how it happened: when I came to New York two months ago, I felt that my hair wasn’t looking its best—it had lost its luster, and didn’t make me happy at all. A colleague at Weleda suggested I try Rosemary Hair Oil. Only days after first using the oil (I applied a couple of drops to my hair and scalp before bed and washed it out the next morning), my hair felt softer and looked...

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...

When Facial Time Becomes Family Time
I recently gave my husband, Dan, a mini Weleda facial for his 40th birthday, using the skin tips that I’ve learned at Weleda.  It turned into a fun family affair when our 6-year-old, Ben, decided he wanted to help. Before we started, Dan shaved with our Men’s Shaving Cream, and I washed his face with the Almond Cleansing Lotion—it’s perfect for sensitive skin like his. Next I gently massaged on our soothing Almond Moisture Cream, and then he laid down for a few minutes with a hot towel on his face, listening to music. While he was relaxing, Ben and I prepared a facial mask.  We mixed clay earth with a few drops of...
