Salix vitellina


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




For those who have suffered adversity or misfortune and find these difficult to accept, without complaint or resentment, as they judge life much by the success it brings.


Twelve Healers 1936




We are not all asked to be saints or martyrs or men of renown; to most of us less conspicuous offices are allotted. But we are all expected to understand the joy and adventure of life and to fulfil with cheerfulness the particular piece of work which has been ordained for us by our Divinity.


Collected Writings p153


Habitat notes




Willows like damp, low-lying land, often lining the banks of rivers and streams. It is a common tree, which is often pollarded.




White Willow trees grow throughout Britain, and the sub-species S. vitellina is found generally.


Emotional state


For those who suffer any small adversity with bitterness and resentment, they blame others and feel hard done by, they are self-centred, self-pitying, self-justifying, feel wronged, sulk and bear grudges, will feel slighted and constantly dissatisfied, lack humour. Symptoms may include constant frowning, grumbling, spread a gloom and negative feeling, a difficult patient since nothing pleases, reluctant to admit improvement.
