Clematis vitalba


One of Bach's original twelve healers.
Prepared by the sun method.




Those who are dreamy, drowsy, not fully awake, no great interest in life. Quiet people, not really happy in their present circumstances, living more in the future than in the present; living in hopes of happier times, when their ideals may come true. In illness some make little or no effort to get well, and in certain cases may even look forward to death, in the hope of better times; or maybe, meeting again some beloved one whom they have lost.


Twelve Healers 1936




The remedy brings stability: and places the patient on a more practical plane; brings them “down to earth”; and so enables them to fulfil their work in this world.


Collected Writings p166


Habitat notes




Clematis grows in woods, on woodland margins and in hedgerows mainly on lime-rich soils.




Clematis is found throughout southern Britain, though it becomes scarce in the north. It especially adorns our hedges in many parts of the country where there is chalk.


State of being


To combat all sleepy, drowsy, listless states. When the patient loses interest. Makes no effort to get well. Seems indifferent as to what happens: has no enthusiasm about anything. Only half hear what is said to them. These people are often dreamy, far-away, apathetic, live in their thoughts; maybe thinking too much of someone they have lost, or dream of ambitions they do not strive to realise. They seem contented, being not fully awake, and happy in their dreams of ideals. They are generally quiet and gentle, but they do not find enough joy in life itself; do not live enough in the present. Ordinary fainting may be of this type and in unconscious cases it is sufficient to moisten the lips with the remedy.
