Blink of an Eye Wash - Caffeine free This tea is for both external and internal use. Eyebright has long been known as the herb of choice for various diseases of the eyes. It is used with excellent results for problems relating to mucous membranes. It is most helpful in acute or chronic inflammations of the eye including, over-sensitivity to light and with stinging and weeping conditions, as well. Eyebright works as a vaso-constrictor and astringent to the nasal and conjunctiva mucous. It brings relief from frequent sneezing bouts and is rejuvenating to eyes that feel exhausted. It also helps with eyes that are cloudy and irritated with lacrymation (excessive tears) of watery or stringy mucus. It is known to be a stimulant to the liver and to clean the blood. Red Raspberry has soothing and anti-viral properties. Golden Seal is an herb used specifically for the mucous membranes. It has also been applied in conditions affecting eye inflammation (it is very gritty so ALWAYS strain it through a fine weave cheese cloth or fine coffee filter or tea bag before using it in the eye). Chamomile has anti-inflammatory properties. Bayberry Bark inhibits bacteria and therefore is a useful agent in fighting infection.
