My trip to Weleda

This post may contain affiliate links.

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

Welcome to Does It Work, my blog dedicated to sharing my quest to live a healthier, less toxic and more natural way of life. If you want to look good and feel great, are eager to avoid chemical-overload in your life - and find effective alternatives to every day products, you've come to the right place! I'm passionate about finding organic and natural alternatives to mainstream products. Why? Because I really believe they are better for us - and for our environment. We use so many chemical-laden products in our homes, and on our skin and hair, that it's vital to be mindful of what we’re using, not just for our own health, but for our children, pets and the planet. My passion for natural, safer alternatives has also been fuelled by the fact that my mum died of cancer when she was very young, something that could well be attributed to the prevalence of potentially harmful ingredients commonly used in hair products and skincare, food additives and chemicals found in the environment. I've always shared my recommendations and experiences of products, treatments and therapies that I've tried and tested with my clients (I'm a professional hairdresser), and through my blog, I can reach a new and wider audience. As well as my expertise in hair, I have considerable knowledge and experience of alternative therapies and techniques, including Reiki, meditation, Feng Shui, EFT, NLP and martial arts. I’ve been actively researching, and testing as many products that I can over the last 10 years. From skincare and make-up, to food and even homeware, I’ve been incorporating the best of what I find into my daily life - and I’ve never felt better. And now I'm sharing it with you, so you can read about things that I've road-tested – and take your pick of the products that I've tried. I'm glad to have you on board and look forward to hearing about your experiences too. Enjoy! Natalie X
