Weleda = smells like heaven
I was gingerly walking the exhibit hall at BlogHer12 in New York City last month, talking to exhibitors about their latest products, playing with their games, drinking their coffees, when I stopped dead on my tracks: the sweetest smell engulfed me and would not let go.
Within seconds I was transported to my favorite spa. My best friend Pam takes me, on my birthday, to the Burke Williams spa. It’s a special treat, of course made even more special by the person who accompanies me. As soon as the doors to the spa open, the sweetest, calming, nurturing, soothing smell welcomes you into the oasis.
What I was smelling in the middle of the busy aisles of the conference was the same thing! The magnificent smell overpowered everything else (in a good way)… the subtle, humid sweat of the 5000 bloggers in attendance, the smells of different foods and beverages being prepared and/or served… even the chatter somewhat seemed to decrease down to a murmur. I’m not exaggerating! In fact, here, I tweeted about it right there and then, see for yourself.

Of course, I immediately proceeded to introduce myself to the lovely ladies manning the Weleda booth from where the heavenly scent was emanating, and, of course,
pestered asked them for samples. I was not disappointed AT ALL. Not only did it smell fantastic on me, their body lotion was in fact chalk-full of awesome ingredients that made for a supple, smoother skin. You see, Weleda pioneered the use of biodynamic and organic ingredients in skin care, because they believe that beauty isn’t engineered in a lab — it’s something that should be cultivated right from the earth without pesticides or chemicals. How about that?
The best part? The generous folks at Weleda sent me three full-size (6.8 fl oz) body lotion bottles in different scents. I kept the Citrus Hydrating Body Lotion for myself (the little Miss Em has been sneaking some for herself) but I’m giving away the other two, the Sea Buckthorn Replenishing Body Lotion and the Pomegranate Regenerating Body Lotion to one lucky reader (retail value $33). Enter quickly before I change my mind and decide to keep them all
weleda, in harmony with nature & the human being
The Weleda company doesn’t just make body lotions. They also offer an array of other body, face, baby, oral and hair care products with the same pedigree and quality. But what makes them really unique are their sustainable ingredients, small carbon footprint, and fair trade partnership with small farmers. The more I read about them, the more I fell in love. Beauty inside and out!
You can follow Weleda on Facebook and Twitter, where they announce their latest news. Of course, the Weleda website is where you should go to find all of their latest offers and freebies, as well as locations of the select stores in the US and Canada that carry their products.
