An interesting visit today

Today is beautiful and sunny. I have stocked up on groceries and bought wrapping paper so tomorrow will be gift wrapping day. This afternoon I have been invited to a blogger's event at a great natural pharmaceutical and beauty product company where i will enjoy a warm natural drink, a hand massage and also get a free goodie bag. I am having to check if I can write company names as I don't want to break rules but I have been to a few events run by the company and in summer we get to enjoy a tour of the organic garden where a lot of the plants used in their products are grown. It is fascinating and I have learned so much on these visits. I am very excited to see what I get in my goodie bag and also to see what they have for their Christmas gift range. The company was founded by Rudolph Steiner early last century and he was certainly a man before his time as he had amazingly revolutionary ideas about medicine and education as well.
Hah! When I started reading this, I guessed that the name 'Steiner' would appear. The home of the company is 10 km away from where I live. Several years ago I took part in a guided tour, too. I don't remember if we got goody bags. I can't help you with company names or not as I've never posted a product review here. You can ask the member @owlwings

I used to have a couple of 'mad old friends' who were devotees of Steiner so I learned about his ideas from them. Then a friend had a child who was doing badly at school so they switched to a Steiner school and she thrived, so much so that my friend then re-trained as a Steiner teacher. Do you get invited to these events because of your blogs?

Yes I do as I blog about natural beauty products and that is something Weleda specialise in. Re Steiner schools ... they often work for children who cannot cope with conventional schools as the work on a very different discipline technique and work ethic.
