Bellis Perennis

Bellis perennis is the English daisy and a member of the Compositae family, from which most of our first aid remedies come from. I always felt that this remedy ought to exist in cream and ointment form, but none of the suppliers I knew carried it until Washington Homeopathic Products made if for me in 2005. This remedy has many properties in common with other first aid remedies, and has a very broad range of uses.


For some reason Bellis perennis never gained the popularity of Arnica, Calendula and many of our other first aid remedies. Most people only prescribe it for soft tissue injuries, but I discovered so many other wonderful uses for it when I researched this remedy. It appears to have properties similar to quite a number of the other first aid remedies, and I have yet to discover why it is not more widely used. If it does all the things that it is listed for it is truly a great remedy of many uses. Here is a list of some of the situations where this cream and remedy can come in handy


1)         Injuries to soft tissue: Think of Bellis perennis for injuries to soft tissue, such as the breast and abdomen. For blows and injuries to muscle tissue, bone or blood vessels think of Arnica. Please read the Arnica chapter to compare the two remedies. If a hard ball hit me in the breast, I would not hesitate to rub this cream on my breast. I gave this remedy internally to a woman who had liposuction to help heal the soft abdominal tissue, and it helped her a great deal.


2)         Sprains and bruises: This remedy duplicates many of the properties of Arnica, and is also good for sprains and bruises. It is good for the near and remote effects of blows, falls and accidents (like Arnica).


3)         Injuries to deeper tissues from surgery.


4)         Injuries to the coccyx like Hypericum.


5)         Injuries to the ligaments like Ruta.


6)      For deep trauma and septic wounds like Calendula.


7)      It is good for boils.


8)         Consider Bellis perennis if Arnica does not help sufficiently with swelling after surgery.


9)      For internal bruising during pregnancy from the movements of the fetus, and for soreness of the abdominal walls, like Arnica.


10)    Varicose veins with bruised sore feeling.


11)    Bellis perennis is known to help women who develop breast cancer after an injury to the breast.  This is the number one remedy for that.


12)    It relieves many troubles of pregnancy, such as the inability to walk and varicose veins.


13)    It helps with breast engorgement.


14)    In my research on this remedy, I also discovered that it is good for the giddiness of elderly people, and for the effects of cold or iced drinks when overheated.


Even though Bellis perrenis has such a wide range of action, for some reason it has not really come into the popularity of the other first aid remedies with which it shares many properties. I hope that once the excellent therapeutic range of this remedy is more widely known that it will be utilized more frequently.

    Dear Alisha,
    I am sorry for my delay in responding to your comment. Bellis perennis is not listed for the symptoms that you mentioned: right chocolate cyst, acne or hypothyroidism. There are ten remedies that are listed for this combination of symptoms. My suggestion is that you work with a homeopath who can take your case and guide you in the selection, administration and management of your case. Some of the remedies are: Iodiim, Caalcarea carbonica, Agaricus, Mercurius, Thyroidinum, Phosphorus and Kali-carb.

    I wish you success in finding a homeopath to work with who can assist you with your case.

    In love and service,

    Dear Julie,
    I am sorry for my delay in responding to your e-mail. Bellis perennis sounds like a good place to start for your girlfriend. I would recommend giving her a single dose of the 30C or 200C of this remedy. She may also benefit from a dose of Calendula officinalis 30C or 200C after the Bellis perennis. This remedy helps with suppuration following surgery, with preventing infection and with wound healing.

    Please read the article on this website about How To take Homeopathic Remedies to learn how to do this safely.

    I wish you and your friend all the best.

    In love and service,

    Dear Emma,
    Thank you for writing with your question about whether Bellis perennis would help with an ovarian cyst. Bellis perennis is not listed for ovarian cysts, so it is unlikely to help with this issue.

    There are 117 remedies listed for ovarian cysts. My recommendation would be to work with a homeopath who can take your complete case and select a good remedy for you, and help manage your treatment.

    If you are interested in working with me, please complete the adult questionnaire that you can find on this website, and e-mail it to me. That way I will know you are ready to proceed.

    I wish you all the best.

    In love and service,

    Dear Carl,
    The remedy that has the highest reputation for tennis elbow is Ruta graveolens. I would use this remedy in the 30C strength first, and if it doesn’t help go to the Bellis perennis. Here is a link to the article I wrote on How to Take Homeopathic Remedies. I hope the article will be helpful:

    I hope you recover very quickly.

    In love and service,

    Hi Deborah, l have tennis elbow which is very painful.
    I believe Bellis Perennis would help. In what form would l be best to take this?

  11. Deborah Olenev

    Dear Asim,
    Please do not repeat the Bellis perennis 200C. It has only been 13 days and you are experiencing improvement. A 200C dose can hold for many months and even years. What I recommend doing is evaluating yourself at seven weeks from when you took the remedy. If the symptoms that had gotten better at that point return for a while, and you are sure you are in a relapse, then you can repeat safely. Please see the article on my website on How to Take Homeopathic Remedies.

    I am happy to hear you are feeling better.

    In love and service,


  12. Asim Gangopadhyaya

    Ten days ago I had given a dose of 200C after breast surgery. Pain went down significantly. However, some pain still remains. Should I repeat the dose?

  13. Deborah Olenev

    Dear Thomas,
    Thank you for writing with your question. There are a lot of remedies in homeopathy for wound healing. Of the creams that I sell on the firstaidcreams.com website, Calendula officinalis cream would be the best one. This cream and remedy is the best remedy in homeopathy for wound healing.

    That said, in your particular situation, the wound heals slowly and breaks open. You may want to consider taking a dose of Silica 30C for that, as it is listed very highly for wounds that break open. Please read the article on the website on

    If you would like additional help with this, please send an e-mail to Olenev@att.net.

    I hope you recover very quickly.

    In love and service,

    Dear Lucy,
    Thank you for your work and dedication in helping people understand the risks of vaccines and hopefully finding solutions to help people who have already suffered negative effects from vaccination. I will refer people to you who can benefit from your work.

    I wish you all the best.

    In love and service,

    While I consider myself to be an educated health advocate and coach, in my quest to make vaccine insanity cease immediately if not sooner – I became certified to administer homeoprophylaxis under Dr. Isaac Golden & Cilla Whatcott. Kate Birch spent many unpaid hours with me and even sent me her books gratis because she sees my passion to empower people to truly care about their health and find authentic health resources. I deeply appreciate healers like yourself who seek to use their knowledge to help the very next person seeking their expertise without taking advantage of them financially. sharing your hard earned knowledge to help people become DIYers is the mark of a healer who desired to emulate the ONE TRUE FAITHFUL & COMPASSIONATE HEALER.
