Anthroposophic and Homoeopathic Medicines. Natural cruelty-free body care. Weleda medicines were developed by doctors practising anthroposophic medicine to provide a further extension to the conventional medicines available to them. The anthroposophic approach to medical care is an holistic one, which aims to treat the whole person and not just the illness or symptoms. The main aim of anthroposophic medicine is to stimulate the natural healing forces within the human being. It has developed from the initial work of Rudolf Steiner and Dr Ita Wegman, which explored how manís soul and spiritual nature relates to the health and function of the physical body. Weleda have been manufacturing medicines for well over 70 years. A wide range of cruelty free skincare and bodycare products has also developed during this time. As with Weleda medicines, their individual ingredients are the best and are selected for their natural therapeutic properties. Pure essential oils in the body care range act not only as natural fragrances, but also as natural preservatives.
