Get Rid Of Floaters, Allergies Or Eye Infections With Herbs

NOTE: This blog is for my own healing, if you read and try something I do... you will be trying it at your own risk.  I do some pretty crazy things to heal, some work, some don't.  So please, check with your doctor before you do anything I do.

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!!
Eyebright
This works for numerous eye problems
redness
itchiness
allergies
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.

Rosewater
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

Barberry Root
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
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
Steep overnight
Another thing you can do is use the tea bags as a compress to treat eye puffiness.

Chamomile
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

    I like that they have something good to say... but hate they try to sneak their advertisement in on me.


    Eye floaters are those tiny spots, specks, flecks and "cobwebs" that drift aimlessly around in your field of vision. While annoying, ordinary eye floaters and spots are very common and usually aren't cause for alarm. Based from the study of Arizona eye care, herbal remedies(like camomile) are really great for this kinds of problems. Floaters and spots typically appear when tiny pieces of the eye's gel-like vitreous break loose within the inner back portion of the eye.
