Why the new Star of Bethlehem?

The answer to the question of why, when Star of Bethlehem already exists, I had to make this remedy too, became clear to me only several years after I had made this remedy.

Star of Bethlehem represents old and new traumas, hurts.

In the training I teach, there is a nurse who loses her baby daughter after being pregnant for 8 ½ months.Star of Bethlehem
After taking "my" Star of Bethlehem, it turns out, ( she felt that she had given a place to this huge trauma and terrible loss of approx. 5 years ago), that she had dreamt at night of her baby and of the first child who had died in hospital during her shift. In the morning, she woke up feeling like: how could I have dreamt about this, it was so long ago. It turns out that it is now really out of her system and really "done" with it. She underwent this with joy. The nurse has now become a dear dear friend. The old blockade was gone. The remedy really helps dissolve these blockages of old wounds. And gives joy.

My husband, Rob, was visiting a client of his. The man looked like hell. Overtired. Their second child had been born and she was crying all night. The baby was one month old. And because the husband had a pretty tough job, where a lot was demanded of him, he slept at his parents' house four nights a week to cope with his work.
Rob came home with this story and of course I said: immediately bring a bottle of Star of Bethlehem to them. Tell them to just put the bottle in the baby's cot. No sooner said than done. After two days, the client called Rob saying that the baby had not cried at night since that bottle was in the cot. The parents, he told them, woke up the first morning with great panic. They had not heard their baby crying and thought she was cot-dead. Luckily...the baby was sleeping soundly in her cot.

These special stories will always stay with me.

But still I didn't know WHY I also so needed to make this remedy.

A few years later, Micha and I visited Tony and Carol Pinkus, the creators of the Ainsworths Bach remedies. And really, they are wonderful Bach remedies. At one point I asked them, gently, that it did seem that "my" Star of Bethlehem worked better than the ones they made.
I was asked HOW I had made the remedy. Well, I said, "just" using the sun method.
What I was told: according to Br. Bach, Star of Bethlehem is made using the boiling method and not the solar method.
They tested my remedy and found it very powerful.

I don't think one flower wants to be cooked. I think that is far too violent an intervention for the flowers in question.
Thus, no single remedy is made with us according to the cooking method.

How to use:

You can put 3 drops from the "stockbottle" into a 30 ml. pipette bottle, fill it with water and possibly add a teaspoon of brandy ( to prevent mould, if you accidentally touched the pipette ) and add three drops of the Star of Bethlehem and take 4 to 6 drops from this bottle under the tongue 4 times a day
you put 2 drops in a glass of water and drink it during the day in small sips ( the stockbottle will run out faster )
you put 6 drops in the bath water
you can also apply the remedy (diluted!!!) to the nipple in case of breastfeeding.

You can also make a cream out of it. What kind of cream doesn't matter, but you put 1 drop from the stockbottle to 10 grams of cream.
This is for when you get hurt, bruised, sunburned or bruised.

Should you have a very sensitive navel you can ( again diluted!!! ) put a few drops in the navel.

According to naturopathy, the law is: the years you suffer from something, the months it takes for it to be over.
So don't think: I just take a few drops and the problem is solved. It's not like that.

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.
