EyeEase formula helps reduce symptoms such as itching and redness.
Recommended dosage is 1/2 dropperful 3 times a day taken internally for treatment when irritation is present. Best taken on empty stomach.
Note: These drops are not eyedrops, and should be taken internally only, unless used with a compress. If used as a compress, here are the preparation instructions:
Boil 8 ounces of water. Add 1 dropper of EyeEase. Let the water cool down (this will evaporate the alcohol). Then dip a clean washcloth or compress into the solution and place over your closed eye(s) for 5 minutes, 2-3 times per day. If the condition persists, contact your eye doctor.
Herbs include Burdock, Forsythia, Golden Seal, Echinacea Angustifolia, Honeysuckle, Chrysanthemum Flower, Eyebright, Chamomile, Red Raspberry Leaf and Marigold.
Burdock root (Arctium lappa) is a liver tonic and lymphatic cleanser. Herbalists have traditionally used burdock for skin conditions, such as boils, sties, and carbuncles.
Forsythia (Forsythia suspensa), Traditional Chinese Medicine recognizes as a 'cooling' herb, has been shown to inhibit viral and bacterial infections, including staphylococcus, streptococcus and salmonella.
Goldenseal (Hydrastis canadensis) is gaining popularity for its natural yet potent antibiotic and antiseptic qualities. American herbalists have prescribed it for more than 100 years to treat inflammation of the eyes.
Echinacea (Echinacea Angustifolia) is one of the most popular immune boosters. It not only supports the body's ability to fight its own battles by enhancing our immune response, but it also has its own antibacterial and antiseptic qualities.
Honeysuckle (Lonicerae japonicae), like forsythia, clears the 'heat' of infection and inflammation and alleviates the swelling of sties. A natural antibiotic, it has been shown to inhibit viral and bacterial infections, including staphylococcus, streptococcus and salmonella.
Chrysanthemum Flower (Chrysanthemum marifoli) is used in the treatment of many eye conditions for its antibiotic effect. It is useful in relieving heat in the eyes, such as in the conditions of sties and conjunctivitis.
Eyebright (Euphrasia officinalis) has been shown since the Middle Ages as a universal eye remedy for both internal and external inflammatory conditions.
Chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla) is a very effective herb when used externally as a compress to help with inflammatory conditions of the eye.
Red Raspberry Leaf (Rubus idaeus) is an astringent herb that helps to break up excess mucous in the eyes.
Marigold, also referred to as Calendula (Calendula officinalis), is a very effective herb in the treatment of inflammatory conditions when used externally (taken internally it aids digestion).
