Weleda also manufactures Homeopathic remedies. Developed by Dr Samuel Hahnemann in the 18th century, homeopathy also follows a holistic approach to good health stimulating the body’s natural ability to cure itself. Its guiding principle is to choose a remedy that would produce similar symptoms to those you wish to treat, i.e. ‘like cures like’. Each remedy is created by a series of dilution and shaking processes to produce a minimum ‘potentised’ dose.
