Calendula Eye Wash

April 14, 2013

Calandula Eye Wash ~ It’s a great natural remedy for irritated eyes caused by: allergies, pool water, dryness, dust, wind, eye strain and even pink eye, but be sure to read the caveats and precautions at the end. Home remedies are great for minor ailments, but if you have: severe eye pain, discharge that is green or yellow, or are diabetic or have other chronic conditions that affect your eyes, it’s always best to seek the advice of a medical professional to be safe.

Calendula Eyewash
Dried (or fresh) Calendula Flowers
Water

Before beginning, make sure your hands and work area are very clean. Put 2 tablespoons of dried calendula flowers in a heat proof cup. Pour boiling water over the flowers, cover the cup with a saucer and let steep for 15 to 20 minutes. Strain through a coffee filter to ensure you remove any small particles that could lead to further eye irritation.

You can use the tea in a few ways:
1.Fill the palm of your hand (or an eyecup) with the liquid, hold it tightly over your eye and let the liquid swish directly over your eyeball.
or
2.Dip small, clean cloths into the liquid and use those as compresses on your eye. Squeeze a bit of the tea into your eye if you can tolerate it. It will help heal things up faster.
