reflects the quality of their finished products. Weleda is a leader in

As the sun starts to rise the Earth breathes out. When evening approaches the earth breathes back in and the plants vital essence gravitate back down. For Weleda this daily rhythm means that healing plants are harvested in the morning, the time when the plants are awakened by the forces of the sun. Weleda views the earth as a living organism. Plants, animals, and people, everything that lives on the earth, stands in a particular relationship to this organism and its surrounding - the cosmos.
