Star of Bethlehem


Ornitholagum umbellatum


One of Bach's second 19 remedies.
Prepared by the boiling method.




For those in great distress under conditions which for a time produce great unhappiness.


Twelve Healers 1936




…to remain in such a state of peace that the trials and disturbances of the world leave us unruffled, is a great attainment indeed and brings us that Peace which passeth understanding; and though at first it may seem to be beyond our dreams, it is in reality, with patience and perseverance, within the reach of us all.


Collected Writings p153


Habitat notes




Star of Bethlehem grows in open grassland on drier soils.




Star of Bethlehem is not uncommon but is most likely to be found in the south and east of England. Old flower books speak of it as being an introduced species to be found in cottage gardens, though if it is not a native species it has generally naturalised.


Emotional state


For shock, grief, distress, for those who need consolation and comfort, for bad news, an accident, a fright, a narrow escape, for delayed shock, to neutralize effects of any shock past or present, even the shock of birth.


Barnard, Guide to Bach Flower Remedies
