Weleda – Healthy Products for Baby and Mommy

October 25, 2012 | | Comments 0

Weleda recently sent me a beautiful gift basket that was filled with their baby and mommy products for a baby shower that I hosted, along with their Calendula Baby Starter Kits for shower attendees that have babies and Body Oil Starter Kits for all other shower attendees. Weleda also very generously sent along environmentally friendly (reusable) Weleda gift bags for their Starter Kits to be given out in. All of the baby shower attendees were so excited to each take home one of these lovely treats from Weleda, and the new mommy was beyond thrilled with the beautiful gift basket that Weleda sent for her and her new baby. Everyone loves a surprise gift! Having seen so many smiles as all of the women at the baby shower left with their own goodies, I highly recommend the Calendula Baby Starter Kit and Body Oil Starter Kit for perfect baby shower party favors.  

I am amazed by the amount of wonderful baby and mommy products that Weleda has. The focus of Weleda’s Baby Care line is that all of the baby products contain Calendula. Weleda explains on their site that they love using Calendula in their products because it’s gentle, nourishing, healing and it has anti-inflammatory properties. Calendula has even more to boast about than that.


Calendula has been used to soothe the skin for centuries. Along with anti-inflammatory properties, Calendula extracts also have anti-viral properties as well. The list of the benefits of Calendula is long, so I’ll just list a few of them for you. Calendula can be used topically for acne, it can aid in controlling bleeding and soothing irritated tissue. There is even some evidence that Calendula cream is effective in treating radiation dermatitis (burns). Traditionally, Calendula has even been used for abdominal cramps and constipation. The many benefits of Calendula certainly explain why Weleda has included Calendula in their products.

Weleda Baby Care products include: Diaper Care, Bath & Wash, Body Creams, Face Creams, and even Oral Care. The great thing about the Calendula Baby Starter Kit is that it includes: Calendula Shampoo and Body Wash, Calendula Diaper Care, Calendula Baby Cream, Calendula Lotion and Calendula Face Cream. I think it’s a great way to introduce yourself to some of these wonderful products, and for $13 it’s certainly a very affordable gift for a new mom. Although, let’s be honest, the gift of full size products is always the best way to go. Plus, introducing a new mom to a line of products that her baby will benefit from is a huge bonus. When buying skin care products for your baby or for a loved one’s baby, the most important thing to consider are the ingredients in all of the products. We spend so much time thinking about our expensive eye creams and anti-aging serums, but the delicate and vulnerable skin of a newborn baby is a much greater priority, in my opinion. I do want to add that I haven’t seen a Weleda product yet that I didn’t think was very reasonably priced. Huge bonus!

From the Weleda website:

- We believe nature offers everything we need to create effective beauty and wellness products. Look through our list of ingredients and you won’t find one unpronounceable synthetic compound or one toxic chemical. You will find flowers and herbs. Fruit  extracts. Clays. Roots. Minerals. Each one carefully selected to heal, protect and beautify, to work with your body’s own healing systems, and do it all gently and effectively. It’s all about nature supporting people supporting nature.

Isn’t that exactly what you want for your baby care products?

For mom’s: Weleda has a Stretch Mark Massage Oil (I can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t want that in their body care collection), Nursing Tea (which supports healthy lactation) and Baby Tummy Oil (which helps to relax your baby’s upset tummy).

Happy baby, happy mommy, happy life!

A very special thanks to my friends at Weleda for sending along such wonderful products and gifts!
