I was strolling through our natural foods store when a delightful scent caught my nose. I had to ask the surprised mommy near me what she used on her child and the baby smelled divine! She told me the Weleda Calendula line. I decided then and there that I had to check it out. Weleda is known for their natural and effective skincare, bodycare and even healthcare. The company was started in 1921 by Dr. Rudolf Steiner and Dr. Ita Wegman who decided that individuals and their bodies, minds and spirits are linked to the world as one large system. They cultivated one of the world’s first Biodynamic gardens and immediately saw how effective their products were. They did not need to use synthetic chemicals or man-made preservatives. Weleda is after the Celtic goddess of wisdom and healing. Today Weleda still cultivates its own Biodynamic gardens.
The Baby skincare line uses organic calendula extract in each of the products. The products smell heavenly and are super-effective. They are very gentle and the shampoos and body washes are tear-free from the Baby skincare line. I love how relaxing the scent is, and we see how calming they are on our daughter. Calendula is one of nature’s natural healers. It is so gentle that adults with sensitive skin are also known to snap up this line whenever they can. Weleda was generous enough to offer a Baby Starter Kit for one lucky Product Mommy reader.
