Weleda – the European tradition of body care is completely in alliance with OrganiclIfeNow.com. We are happy to sell their products in our organic and all natural online shop. Gabriele, the founder of OrganiclifeNow is from Europe and has visited the main center of Weleda in Switzerland near the Swiss city Basel. Weleda goes hand in hand with the Swiss wonderful habit of maintaining as much culture and tradition as possible. What has been proven in the past, will also be good in the future. Why changing it?
It all goes back to 1921 and something called anthroposophy. This movement, stemming from the teachings of philosopher Dr. Rudolf Steiner, encourages the individual to see his or her body, mind and spirit as intrinsically linked to our world; all part of one holistic system.
And so Steiner, along with Dr. Ita Wegman, got together with a team of dedicated scientists and doctors to determine just how they might use this philosophy to take care of their patients’ needs. They understood that a human body has a remarkable ability to heal itself, but sometimes it needs a little help. So they developed a personal approach to health care using natural ingredients that can holistically work with and support our own body’s healing tendencies.
They started by creating one of the world’s first Biodynamic® gardens to grow what they needed. Sound new agey? It’s actually old agey—what cultures around the world have done successfully for generations.
It was successful for our founders too.
Patients were healed, wellness and balance were restored to them, and never once was a synthetic chemical or lab-made preservative used in the process.
The company’s new name couldn’t have been more appropriate: Weleda, after the Celtic goddess of wisdom and healing.
Soon, word got around about the innovative, effective work Weleda was doing and the company spread from Switzerland, to Germany and into North America and the world. Today we’re proud to have offices and partnerships in more than 50 countries.
And yet despite our success, not a whole lot has changed. We still cultivate our own Biodynamic® gardens. We still believe natural ingredients truly provide what a body needs to be vibrant, beautiful and well. We still put the health and well-being of you above all else.
And we continue to grow, spreading our passion for beauty, wellness and environmental respect around the world.
