I have had floaters in my eyes for many years. I also have allergies that cause strings that I can just pull out of my eyes. Lately, and I don't know if it is because the pollen is high or what, but my eyes have been very itchy and full of strings.
I decided to give the herbal eyewash a try. I used the camomile because I usually have a cup of camomile tea every night when I take my relaxing bath. Camomile is great for helping you to relax.
I cooled the camomile and put it into an eye cup and blinked while I slowly repeated the alphabet.
My eyes felt so refreshed after and I could wear my contacts without rubbing my eyes all day long.
Herbs you can use for eyewashes
Do not use these with out exploring their safety first. This is just what I do for myself, if you choose to try it.... Check it out first!!
This works for numerous eye problems
Floaters. Make this simple eyewash by boiling a cup of distilled water with a teaspoon of eyebright for ten to fifteen minutes, then thoroughly strain the liquid through clean pantyhose or a coffee filter and allow it to cool.
This will kind of burn but that is normal. It might also make your eyes bloodshot for about an hour.
To freshen your eyes, you can also try using rosewater as an eyewash.
1/2 Cup rose petals rinsed well
1 cup water
Boil for 15 minutes
Steep over night and strain before using
When I have a film or itchiness in my eyes, I use barberry root. This will treat mild infection.
Boil a barberry root in a cup and a half of water for about fifteen minutes.
Let steep over night and strain or if you are in a hurry just let it cool.
Green tea is another herbal remedy that is effective in treating irritation of the eyes.
Brew a cup of pure green tea and mix it with half a cup of water
Another thing you can do is use the tea bags as a compress to treat eye puffiness.
Chamomile can be used to treat infection and irritation in the eye.
2 teaspoons of dried chamomile
2 cups of water
Boil and let steep overnight.
I drink Chamomile to help me relax and fall asleep easier
