At the very core of our existence is the desire to heal and to promote healthy living. We believe that leading a balanced lifestyle can help you stay well. However, if you are ill, a holistic approach to healthcare can help stimulate your body’s own natural healing capacity.
90 years ago in Switzerland, Dr. Rudolf Steiner, a renowned philosopher, founded Weleda in partnership with Dr. Ita Wegman, a medical doctor. They developed a personal approach to healthcare which takes into consideration the individual as well as the illness, and uses natural ingredients that work holistically to support the body’s own healing capacity. Today, we still believe natural ingredients truly provide what the body needs to be vibrant and well. And, we put your health and wellbeing above all else.
Our natural medicines are subject to the same stringent quality standards that apply to all licensed pharmaceutical manufacturers and because we are so passionate about what we do and how we do it, we take quality a few steps further…
Natural Medicines Grown by Hand
At Weleda, we understand how a medicine is made directly affects its quality. We potentise by hand, often for hours, adding the human element into the medicine making process which is a vital part of our philosophy.
We ensure the eco-system is balanced, planting in line with the Biodynamic calendar; odd at first until you realise that the moon, sun and planets all affect the way a plant grows. Farming in this way isn’t easy but it is well worth the extra effort we go to as our plants make potent tinctures from which we make your medicines.
We hand pick our gardeners too:
Our gardeners are special folk. Their job is to nurture, ensuring the plant itself and its environment is healthy. We use traditional farming methods as it makes sense to rotate our growing beds annually and we combine wisdom from our many seasons of gardening, creating active composts to feed the soil from our own plant materials; we make our own biodynamic garden preparations from our natural materials which we spray in the spring, summer, autumn and winter. Our aim is to grow the healthiest of plants, always.
