Stimulate your natural healing ability
At the very core of Weleda’s mission is the desire to heal, to restore the body’s own natural balance and to help promote healthy living. Weleda has produced natural medicines since 1921 in Europe, and in New Zealand since 1955, based on the principles of anthroposophy, which views healing as a process that brings a human being’s body, soul and spirit back into balance with itself and its environment.
Our vision is all about creating a world in which the health and beauty of human beings and nature continually unfold. And our promise to you, is we harness only the power of nature’s wisdom so you look and feel your best.

Our New Zealand gardens provide many of the key ingredients for some of our natural remedies. To ensure the best quality ingredients we grow our own plants in herb gardens to certified biodynamic standards. Biodymanic farming is a sustainable, closed circle (nothing from the outside), regenerative form of farming - it isn’t just about how the plants are grown it’s also about where and when we grow them. Farming in this way isn’t easy but it is well worth the extra effort we go to as our plants make potent tinctures from which we make our medicines.
No pesticides or artificial fertilisers are ever used here, the land is managed sensitively and we’ve developed different habitats such as a pond, native woodland, meadows, hedgerows etc. which help to sustain biodiversity with a rich and diverse population of insects, birds and animals.
Our gardeners are special folk. Their job is to nurture, ensuring the plant itself and its environment is healthy. We use our own seed bank as we believe this makes for plants most suited to our environment here in the Hawke’s Bay. We use traditional farming methods as it makes sense to rotate our growing beds annually and we combine wisdom from our many seasons of gardening, creating active composts to feed the soil from our own plant materials; we make our own biodynamic garden preparations from our natural materials which we spray in the Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. Our aim is to grow the healthiest of plants, always.
Our New Zealand production facility is just a few metres away from the medicinal plant garden. Short distances from the plant bed to the plant extracting facility are important in order to maintain the high quality of the raw materials from biodynamic cultivation.
Weleda New Zealand complies with Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) Pharmaceutical standards and is licensed and audited regularly by the Ministry of Health (Medsafe) under 21st century regulations.We are proud to work to very strict quality standards, which is how we can offer trustworthy natural healthcare products.
