Eyebright (Euphrasia officinalis)
This is a powerful astringent, anti-catarrhal and anti-inflammatory herb. It’s particularly useful for helping to relieve any congestion in the head, such as hayfever. Only the aerial parts of this herb are used. When made into a tea, strained and allowed to cool, it makes an excellent soothing eye wash. Caution: Avoid use in pregnant and lactating animals.
Dose: 20-30g dried herb daily.
