Pulsatilla Homeopathic Remedy: Chronic & Acute Uses

Known as the pasque flower, the Pulsatilla homeopathic remedy is made from a beautiful purple flower that grows in North America, Europe, and Asia.

Although it may look innocent, the flower is actually acrid and poisonous, if eaten in it’s original, non-homeopathic form. Nicknamed the “flower of sickness,” the Romans hung these flowers on their doorposts believing that it warded off fevers.

The flower has no scent and grows in sandy areas. It is also pollinated by the wind, hence another nickname: the windflower.

In homeopathic form the flower is used as a tincture.

Here’s a great video of homeopath Misha Norland, who presents a very accurate remedy picture of the typical Pulsatilla patient:
