Weleda for Sports

2 Jun

by Paige Donner

Summer is here and with it all the outdoor sports we love to indulge in – tennis, jogging, tai chi, surfing… To take care of yourself while you’re taking care of yourself, have a go at the line of Weleda products designed for athletes.  The line is all natural and good for professional athletes as well as those of us who simply get outdoors to get in our workouts.

Creme Sani-Pieds – This foot cream is made from organic myrrh and calendula extracts with lavendar and orange essential oils added. It’s non-greasy and leaves your feet feeling soft and refreshed, while aiding with perspiration.

Silver Birch Juice – To be mixed with water and drunk after your workout or throughout the day, this concentrate of silver birch leaf juice aids in elimination of toxins. The organic juice contains different substances whose “flavonoids” aid in elimination.

Copper Sulfate Tonic Gel for Legs – Runners and speedwalkers know the sensation of “heavy legs.” It comes from miles of pounding the pavement. This refreshing and tonifying gel, greaseless, is made from extracts of copper sulfate, lemon, arnica and essential oils. Keep it in the refrigerator for a particularly intensive after-workout therapy for your legs.

Weleda is a  Swiss company that has been devoted to organic well-being products for 90 years. It is the official partner of  INSEP (Institut National du Sport, de l’Expertise et de la Performance) and has been chosen by the French medical commission for the National Olympic Committee of Sports for the London 2012 games.

Next time you are in Paris, book yourself and your sweetheart for a couples massage and, time permitting, a massage workshop. The Espace Weleda just off the Champs Élysées is a naturally inviting space that is used as a spa and also, primarily, as a place to educate clients about the Natrue certified Weleda products and how to use them effectively. Workshops are held several times a week and the couples massage workshop is very popular especially around Valentine’s Day.
