Eyebright herb relieves inflammation caused by colds, sinus infections, congestion, and allergies.
A simple infusion in water with 1 oz of the herb to a pint of boiling water should be used and the eyes bathed three or four times a day. When there is much pain, use a warm infusion rather more frequently for inflamed eyes till the pain is removed. In ordinary cases the cold application is found sufficient. I prefer the warm method for these conditions as it relaxes the facial muscles and loosens mucous.
Cautions:Use a sterile cup/cloth to avoid infecting the eyes. Strain infusion thoroughly. Works as well as a compress on closed eyes. Use a sterile cloth soaked in infusion and gently lay over closed eyes. Use that time to visualise the changes your want in your life.
