Simple Herbal Eyewash
How many of you used to go outside and make potions with grass & flowers? 🖐🏼I did!
As a *still learning* herbalist, it feels so natural to feel like that small kid again making potions and knowing how to use it.
Today is a simple eyewash with Chamomile and Plantain leaf.
I have these dry, itchy red eyes and I searched through my books for some relief.
Plants that have cooling and moisturizing properties to counteract the symptoms.
(Chamomile is also anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial 🙌🏼)
I found this simple eyewash and It's great support for types of conjunctivitis or allergy symptoms.
Grab a tablespoon of chamomile or a tablespoon of a chamomile & plantain blend (mine is 50/50)
Add a cup of just boiled water and let it steep for 30min.
Strain liquid and pour into a small dish.
Use a clean washcloth to soak up tea and place on eyes for 5min. (Make sure tea is cooled down to tolerate being on skin! No hot tea!)
This is also a great wash for itchy skin just up your mix to 1/2 a cup and a quart of water and use a wash cloth or mix into a bath.
