Star of Bethlehem is for the after-effects of trauma, mental or physical as a result of accidents, bad news, bereavement, sudden disappointments, frights, etc.
Although ideally taken immediately after the event, it is also excellent for delayed effects which may manifest years after the event in the form of physical symptoms. People may be numbed and withdrawn with a sense of loss or grief.
Star of Bethlehem is an important ingredient of the Rescue Remedy. It is useful for both mother and child immediately after birth.
The positive potential of Star of Bethlehem is to neutralize the effects of the trauma, whether immediate or delayed, thus helping the sufferer to recuperate.
Dr. Bach described this essence as 'the comforter and soother of pains and sorrows'.
