Pinkeye Tea Recipe


Method

Fill a tea ball with equal parts camomile (antiseptic), borage (alleviated inflammation and redness), eyebright (excellent for conjunctivitis any other eye complaints) and elderflowers (beneficial for tired eyes).


Pour on 2 ½ cups boiling hot (fresh from the kettle) water allow to steep until cooled. Add 5 drops witch-hazel extract (coolant and antiseptic) and stir.


Wash eye (outside) gently with infusion and put one drop of infusion in eye as needed or desired. Also can be used by soaking a cloth in the infusion and putting over the eye until your eye feels better. 

If you’re using this for a child leave out the witch-hazel. This is good for anything where your eyes are painful inflamed and red.
