Weleda teamed up with the Biodynamic Association earlier this year to offer travel sizes of five of Weleda’s Mighty Essentials in a kit for a donation. The proceeds go to help awaken and enliven co-creative relationships between humans and the earth. Helping to transform the practice and culture of agriculture to renew the vitality of the earth, the integrity of our food, and the health and wholeness of our communities.
The Mighty Essentials travel kit is valued at $25 and includes travel sizes of Skin Food, Almond Soothing Facial Lotion, Sea Buckthorn Creamy Body Wash, Salt Toothpaste, and Arnica Massage Oil.
Weleda Sea Buckthorn Creamy Body Wash – Mighty Essentials Kit
A creamy orange scented body wash, Weleda Sea Buckthorn is orange based scented. This fresh scented body wash lathers well and rinses clean for a residue-free finish. It is not as thick as some body washes so works best with a sponge or pouffe. It doesn’t dry the skin out at all and is chemical free for a healthier shower.
Weleda Almond Soothing Facial Lotion – Mighty Essentials Kit
The Almond Soothing Facial Lotion from Weleda is a hypoallergenic and fragrance free lotion. That being said, it does have that fragrance free smell of many lotions tinged with almond scent. It is just the right consistency, not too runny or thick and a medium amount of moisturizing power. Good for everyday use but if you have dry skin, you may need something with a little more power. The tube in the Weleda Mighty Essentials Kit is perfect for keeping in your purse.
Weleda Arnica Massage Oil – Mighty Essentials Kit
You can ease muscle aches with warming Weleda Arnica Massage Oil. It has quite a strong scent in the bottle but settles quickly once rubbed on the skin. Wild-crafted arnica flower extract, proven to soothe sore muscles, helps ease pain and boasts a warming effect. A base of sunflower seed and olive oils nourish and hydrate skin as birch extract delivers detoxifying effects. While your skin soaks in the muscle-soothing properties, a pure, natural essential oil fragrance of lavender and rosemary helps you relax.
Weleda Salt Toothpaste – Mighty Essentials Kit
A mix of baking soda, salt and peppermint oil make Weleda Salt Toothpaste effective at cleaning teeth and giving you fresher breath. There is no fluorides or detergents in this paste. It does have quite the gritty texture that takes a bit of getting used to. As does the salty taste but the peppermint oil does help with that. Not sure it is something I would buy again but we finished the tube.
Weleda Skin Food – Mighty Essentials Kit
Skin Food by Weleda is a thick lotion perfect for dry and rough skin. If you don’t need something as strong as Skin Food, it can be a bit greasy for everyday use. But for really dry skin, Skin Food is amazing. I used it on my hands which tend to be dry and you can see a big difference in one use. It has a medium-strong herbal scent. Definitely worth picking up if you have dry skin and the trial size like the one in the Mighty Essentials Kit is perfect as a little goes a long way.
The kit, if you happen to find a Weleda Mighty Essentials Kit, it is well worth picking up. Skin Food, Almond Lotion and the Arnica Massage Oil are worth buying to try. Weleda is sold online through well.ca or at health food and green type stores.
