Eyebright eye wash

Eyebright herb relieves inflammation caused by colds, sinus infections, and allergies. A simple infusion in water of 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.

Cautions: Use a sterile cup to avoid infecting the eyes. Strain infusion thoroughly. Works as well as a compress on closed eyes
