It's raining golden flower petals

What a lovely surprise!

Coming back home from our trip to the west, a large package filled with wonderful Calendula children's skin care products from Weleda was waiting for us.

More than 3,000 fans interested in natural,
anthroposophical skin care had signed up for this event - i got lucky and became one of Weleda's Calendula ambassadors.

Of course, that must be celebrated!  

Six curious, excited moms and kids are about to discover Calendula's secrets and look forward to a pampering afternoon.

First and foremost we want to touch, feel, smell and embrace this sunny miracle of a plant.

"Ahhh - smells healthy," says eight-year old Nele.

The Calendula is a traditional medicinal plant. She has the ability to form healing powers from sunlight.

We marvel at the last fresh marigolds - the english name of Calendula - from our late summer garden...

...and the dried flowers provide us with a cheerful exuberant, gorgeous shower of flower petals. 

A glorious experience for all senses!

The treasure chest is now lifted and examined.

Already so much adventure - with cupcakes, Calendula yogurt cake, tea and a great DVD Weleda had put together for us, we settle down for a moment to listen to a lot interesting and valuable information about the company and the Calendula plant.

Hmmm - Lilith Schwertler kindly and compassionately introduces us via video to a guided hand massage. That's just the right thing to do for us now. 

And the miracle happens!

Six chattering school girls experience a solid transformation
to six very relaxed, quietly enjoying little souls after only a very few minutes of devoted hand massage with the wonderfully soft-sunny-summery citrus fragrant Sea Buckthorn oil.

It's that easy!

A gentle facial massage with Calendula Face Cream and two cucumber slices is the perfect ending to our GREAT Weleda Wellness afternoon.

Very big thank you to Weleda for this beautiful, informative campaign.

We all had so much fun and enjoyment with your pampering package! 


Pure Nature - Perfect Balance

01 07 2011 Happy World

Oh, look at this! Probably not easy to digest when taken orally - just coming back to my last post - but irresistibly wonderful on your skin!

It's one of the very few 100% natural eau de perfumes available on the market these days.

Called "Lebensfreude" which means "Joy of Life" in english and made by german Company 'Primavera', who celebrates it's 25th anniversary this year with a limited edition of some beautiful, bountiful and blissful smelling products.

Primavera is the Italian word for spring. And just like spring greets the world with its exuberant and vibrant renewal, Primavera's philosophy honors nature and its abundance in a very conscious way.

"Our holistic products are made of pure, natural, organic ingredients of highest quality. Combined with loving care and responsibility for humans and nature together with fair relationships at all levels of production and distribution, our products draw their strengths from the immense wealth of the natural flora to bestow inner and outer balance."

I immediately liked the summery colored package design with the pink " Tree of life" and of course the wonderful citrus aromas of the natural essences mixture. Once it's on your skin you can close your eyes and find yourself back in a blossoming orange orchard in Spain.....Hhhmmm...-

To make life just perfect, there is also a shower gel, a massage oil and a little gift set available.

So, treat yourself to some wearable "joy of life" and have fun!
