My trip to Weleda

For those of you that know me know I live on a farm and live a holistic lifestyle – I love yoga, meditation and working with angels, I’m also vegetarian and almost vegan although I do eat eggs from my own chickens. So it is my preference to use natural and organic products on myself and my clients.

So I was very excited to be invited up to Weleda and look around their farm where they source their products and their factory where they make all their homeopathic medicines. The company motto “in harmony with nature and the human being” says it all. They have been around over 90 years and commit to using raw organic substances and act as sustainable as possible on all levels.

I was very excited to be told when I was shown around their fields that they practise biodynamic farming.

Biodynamic farming is a method of organic farming only even better, it is a spiritual, ethical and ecological approach based on the findings of Dr Rudolf Steiner a highly trained scientist and respected philsopher. Biodynamic farmers plant and harvest around the moon cycle that generate balanced, healthy plants that enhance the nutrition and quality of the plant – I was absolutely fascinated!

The fields at Weleda are just what you expect colourful and beautiful and it made me realise even more how important that it is that we understand where our all products are coming from.

This is the calendula plant that they use in their baby products – how pretty is it?

No chemicals are used anywhere on the fields.

Their fields are beautiful aren’t they?
And even more bigger news is that they are bringing out a hair range – I have some really exciting news to announce about that soon! The press launch is September 12 and the products will then be available nationwide so look out for them!

See you Soon!

About Me

Hi, I’m Natalie Shirlaw, a professional hair stylist on a personal wellness journey.

My aim is to help women live a more natural life that will leave them looking and feeling amazing. Ever since I was 10 I’ve been fascinated with the hairdressing business and officially started working when I was 14. I’ve worked in some of the top UK salons and for some of the best hairdressers in the world, and I now have my own salon in Kent.

 As a hairdresser I’ve always wanted to give my clients the latest and best products and even ended up being a technical consultant for L’Oreal, but one thing was common throughout my career - 

I am passionate about finding natural and organic products that work just as well as the big brand alternatives, and that are ultimately better for you too. For over 10 years I’ve been actively researching, and testing as many products that I can. Everything from skincare, to makeup, to food and even home wear. I’ve been incorporating these products and tactics into my daily life since and I’ve never felt better. Outside of my regular work I’ve studied martial arts and other Eastern practices like Reiki, meditation, Feng Shui, EFT and NLP.

 So as you can see I’m a big advocate for all around healthy and natural living. I’ll be sharing my best tips, tactics and products here, that you can implement easily to live a more natural life, where you can feel and look amazing. I’m really excited to have you with me on this journey and can’t wait to see what we can accomplish together!
