Star of Bethlehem - Ornithogalum umbellatum

This blossom remedy is the remedy for all situations, which somehow have not been handled well, think of:
Grief, psychological shock, disappointments, the loss of a loved one and the consequences of a past shock, e.g. in childhood or at birth.

Star of Bethlehem
Birth is the first physical shock experience a child undergoes. One moment the child is still floating delightfully in the warm amniotic fluid, the next the child is being pushed through the birth canal. The child may experience this as a shock. A crying baby can be a result of this.
A simple solution to this is 6 drops of Star of Bethlehem in the bath water to neutralise the shock in this way.
In Switzerland, many hospitals and birthing clinics give Star of Bethlehem to the newborn in advance after birth.
If children or adults are later found to have a sensitive navel, it still indicates birth trauma.

Frequent headaches between the eyebrows, complaints a hand width below the collarbone or complaints from the 8th thoracic vertebra to the 1st lumbar vertebra also point to this.
In later life, you see that Star of Bethlehem people have become vulnerable. Every new shock or hurt seems to reopen the old wound. Seemingly small events can already throw them completely off balance.

Star of Bethlehem is related to the heart meridian. The saying: my heart is breaking really applies here.
This flower remedy thus helps dissolve the emotional blockages of old wounds.
Blossom remedies may be taken with all medicines, phytotherapeutic and homeopathic remedies.

I would like to tell you about the blossom remedy Houttuynnia Cordata in the next blog.

Use of Blossom Remedies

The most important thing with blossom remedies is the frequency of intake. Blossom remedies are best taken as often as possible in a day with the golden guideline being; 4 to 6 times a day, with 4 drops at a time from the dispensing bottle. To use blossom remedies and a user bottle, here are the simple steps; take a clean and unused 30ml pipette bottle. First, fill the pipette bottle with spring water. After this, add one teaspoon of brandy as a preservative, then add the blossom remedies.

Take the stock bottle or stock bottles of the chosen blossom remedies and put 3 drops of each into the 30ml. pipette bottle. A second golden guideline is; 1 drop from the stock bottle(s) to 10ml of spring water. There is no need to shake the bottle before use as it only contains the vibrations of the plants and has no actual material content.

Then take 4 drops from the user bottle and drip it under the tongue. If you touch the dropper with the tongue, mould may develop in the bottle. Repeat taking the blossom remedies at least 4 to 6 times a day.

Flower remedies are not a substitute for medication and do not replace doctors or medical specialists. Please note that in case of doubt you should always consult a doctor.
