Mimulus guttatus


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




Fear of worldly things, illness, pain, accidents, poverty, of dark, of being alone, of misfortune. The fears of everyday life. These people quietly and secretly bear their dread, they do not speak freely of it to others.


Twelve Healers 1936




Fear in reality holds no place in the natural human kingdom, since the Divinity within us, which is ourself, is unconquerable and immortal, and if we could but realise it we, as Children of God, have nothing of which to be afraid.


Collected Writings p149


Habitat notes




Mimulus grows on wet ground. Found naturally in the west of North America in damp places from sea level to over 3000m in the Rockies and other mountains. It is very variable.




Mimulus is now naturalised and grows on watercourses throughout Britain. But it is becoming more local as it will not tolerate the chemical pollution that washes into most streams and rivers from farmland. Where Bach found Mimulus 'growing to perfection' along the River Usk it is now little in evidence. He spoke of 'crystal streams where the water is clear'- they are now a rarity in lowland Britain.


State of being


To combat all fear. Fear of disease, of accidents, of unknown things. Fear of people, of relatives, of strangers, of crowds, of noise, of talking or of being questioned, of being alone. Fear of damp, of cold, of heat, of the dark. Fear of complications in illness, or of being incurable.


Edward Bach
