Eye Compress for Allergies

Posted on by Elizabeth / Posted in News | Leave a comment

Allergies can be rough, especially for kids. Sara, my youngest daughter, has struggled with a pollen allergy for the last couple of years. She refuses to go see an allergist, and prefers to take a homeopothic remedy. When we saw her eye doctor this week, he suggested OTC eye drops, and Sara said she hates eye drops and asked if I could make something for her instead. I went to my herbal apothocary and chose Eyebright and Chrysanthemum for a natural herbal eye compress. Eyebright (Euphrasia officinalis) is well known as a remedy for the eyes, and Chrysanthemum (Chrysanthemum sp.) will cool, and calm eye irritations.

To make this remedy, place 1 teaspoon of Eyebright and 1 teaspoon of Chrysanthemum into 1 pint of boiling water. Let rest for 10 minutes. Strain, let cool, and dip a clean, cotton washcloth into the herbal infusion. Wring out, and place compress on eyes for 15 minutes.

Time to say arrivederci!

One of our first products, the Botanical Moisturizing Salve is a gentle and effective salve that is free from harsh chemicals, artificial fragrances, colors and alcohol, and, you’ve trusted it for a long time to soothe dry skin. As part of my advanced graduate coursework in aromatherapy, I made a new salve that my human testers loved even more than this, and so as hard as it is, it’s time to phase this product out of stock. We will continue to offer the salve at a discount until all of our labels have been used.
