Live from our garden – our bees are being treated against the Varroa mite. Formic acid is poured into bottles, which are then placed upside down onto a folded paper towel. The acid removes the mites without harming or interfering with the bees. A tablet is placed underneath the hive to count the mites and gauge how severe the infestation of the colony is.
Live from the “Calendar of the Soul” – our version of a “Monday Quote”, written by Dr. Rudolf Steiner for this very week, one hundred years ago. He inspired the life and the work of Dr. Rudolf Hauschka, but also the ideas of Demeter organic farming and Waldorf education. Even today, here at Dr. Hauschka many of us are still inspired by his words. Have a wonderful week, going your own way with verse no.19: ‘Geheimnisvoll das Neu-Empfang'ne Mit der Erinnerung zu umschliessen, Sei meines Strebens weitrer Sinn: Er soll erstarkend Eigenkräfte In meinem Innern wecken Und werdend mich mir selber geben.’
Live from our medicinal herb garden – with a post from one of our green co-workers. We are awfully sorry but there is no other post today as it is Sunday and nobody is working at the Dr. Hauschka head office... except for the plants, of course. In fact, they work hard here every single day, whatever the weather. Have a beautiful and sunny Sunday, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing – or not doing.
Live from Eckwälden – with the weekend coming, it's time for Dr. Hauschka's Friday beauty treat. Summer is definitely here and our bodies are feeling it with these high temperatures. One of the best ways to find relief on a hot summer day is with a cooling foot bath. Take a bowl, add few drops of Dr. Hauschka Lemon Lemongrass Vitalising Bath Essence, then soak your feet for as long as you wish. The fresh scent of sun-ripened lemons combined with exotic lemongrass creates a feeling of lightness and joie de vivre. Happy weekend.
Live from our farm – we were out in our Calendula field at 5:45 a.m. today, harvesting the aromatic marigold flowers by hand. These flowers will be used in a variety of our revitalising Dr. Hauschka Skin Care products, such as: Cleansing Cream, Clarifying Toner, Daily Hydrating Eye Cream, Eye Balm, Lip Balm, Sage Mouthwash, and Light Reflecting Concealer 00.
Live from the Cosmetics Development – did you know that our Dr. Hauschka Volume Mascara contains cane sugar? While candied lashes may sound strange, sugar is great for coating and shaping fine eyelashes and therefore enabling the Dr. Hauschka Volume Mascara to create real volume. If any form of sugar is used for this purpose, it is usually beet sugar. But we consciously chose cane sugar – and are possibly the only ones to do so. This ingredient is obtained from the energy-packed, green leaves and stalks of the sugar cane. Unlike the sugar beet, sugar cane grows above ground, in the light, and is therefore far better suited for the eyes.
