Star of Bethlehem Flower Essence


30 ml (1 fl.oz)

A flower essence crafted during a waxing spring moon with fresh Star of Bethlehem flowers (Ornithogalum umbellatum). The flowers were ritually harvested from our poison garden and mindfully prayed over. A flower essence, made from a significantly diluted solar infusion of water and fresh flowers, is a safe and gentle way to work with poisonous plant medicine. All parts of the Star of Bethlehem are poisonous as it contains some of the same toxic cardiac glycocides as lily of the valley.

Star of Bethlehem is one of the original 38 Bach flower remedies and is known as “the comfort flower”. This essence can be called upon to help people recover from emotional shock and trauma, whether old or recent, and to help with recovery and rebirth. In folk magic, this plant spirit can be asked to protect and cleanse yourself of toxicity from others or from yourself. Believed to have sprung up from the shattered pieces of the Star of Bethlehem after it fell to earth, the flowers are associated with purity, hope, forgiveness, and reparations.

Flower Essence Info:

Flower essences embody a living tradition of magical herbalism. In use since the early 1900s, flower essences are not tinctures but diluted cold water infusions of the fresh flowers which are harvested in a mindful ceremony and prayed over. Developed by Doctor Edward Bach in the1930s, they are meant to be ingested in homeopathic amounts to help with emotional pain such as fear, uncertainty, loneliness, oversensitivity, burnout, sadness, and trauma. Flower essences made from poisonous plants are safe to ingest and can be used for spiritual cleansing, magical rituals, anointing, and plant spirit communion.

We sell flower essences as 30 ml stock bottles. A stock bottle is simply 50% best brandy and 50% water. Three drops of a flower’s mother essence are put into this stock bottle and we ship it to you ready for use. The mother essence is the pure cold water infusion of the fresh flowers which are harvested ritually, prayed over, and infused in the morning sun for a couple hours before straining and using to make stock bottles. The finished flower essence you receive is a diluted version of this mother essence preserved with the alcohol. There are only three drops of a mother essence in each bottle of our flower essences.


To work with Star of Bethlehem flower essence, take three drops under your tongue 1-3 times a day for a period of 3, 6, or 9 days, weeks, or months depending on your situation.

To use this flower essence for magic and ritual, take three drops before performing ceremonies of working with ancestors, soul flight, plant spirits, animal spirits, or deities. Add the flower essence to ritual baths or holy water. Use it anoint candles, talismans, herbal sachets, etc. Ask the plant spirit for aid and guidance through rough times. Don’t forget to leave an offering to the plant after it has helped you and the circle of giving is complete. Fitting offerings include incense, honey, wine, flowers, or tobacco leaf, or planting it in your garden.
