= Helo-s.-ähnlich;


Allerlei: Pima tribe believes that Larrea was 1st plant placed on the Earth by the creator, shortly after Earth was created. Recently, it has been verified that Larrea is indeed among the oldest living plants in the world.  Some currently living Larrea plants actually started growing nearly 12.000 years ago, shortly after the glaciers retreated during the last ice age.

special antioxidant lignans and flavonoids with antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial qualities.

However, the raw unprocessed Larrea has turpine compounds in it that can irritate the body's tissues (liver) with regular use. There are cheaper Larrea products offered that are simply ground Larrea leaves. These are much less effective and may cause problems if overused.


 “The most important botanical drugs are discovered and validated by linking folk medicine and modern medicine.”

Each plant has the potential to live at least 12.000 years because it can grow in groups of long-living clones. Any plant that can live up to 12,000 years in a harsh environment and dominate/without sickness/it thrives in desert regions

 “As if being oppressed + not allowed to grow + everything appearing narrow”.

Flower essence for alcohol cravings and for drug detoxification.  


Theme: Water. Dryness (mucous membranes)/excess salivation/THIRST + not > drinking. /swelling.  This was often described “As if full”.  Many of the provers exhibited symptoms of internal swelling (upper respiratory tract). Feeling of tension and release. > pressure.

Discharge (respiratory tract). Often nasal obstruction + nose that would “run non-stop”. The mucous sticky and very hard to cough up. A recurring theme in the dreams was a lack of blood. The plant is covered in a complex waxy resinous substance that prevents the loss or leakage of any fluid from the plant. Another form of discharge was a yeast infection. Setting boundaries/ending situations in which one feels energetically drained/can’t take it anylonger + end it.

Its usage for codependency, coupled with its usage in the treatment of cancer and diabetes recall the remedy Carcinosin and may place the remedy into the Cancer Miasm.  It may be that the plant is so focused on survival that there is little energy left over for concern about others (codependency)/care for own space

Wirkung:                    l. or r./moving l. to r.


Allerlei: As the creosote bush grows older, its oldest branches eventually die and its crown splits into separate crowns. This normally happens when the plant is 30 to 90 years old. Eventually,

the old crown dies and the new one becomes a clonal colony from the previous plant, composed of many separate stem crowns all from the same seed.[
