Action & Uses: A refreshing tonic
for the eyes. Mildly soothing, cleansing and astringent. Indicated in
tired eyes, and in burning, inflamed eyes and conjunctiva:
allergies, conjunctivitis (“pink-eye”),
sty and “bloodshot eyes.”
Although not a specific for problems like failing vision,
cataracts, glaucoma, or retinal displacement, this compound may nonetheless
be indicated as adjunct therapy for enhancing general ocular health.
Dose: Never place undiluted drops directly
in the eyes! Place 3 to 15 drops* in an eyecup filled with
sterilized water or saline solution and stir well with the extract’s
glass dropper. Do a one-minute eyewash with this mixture 1 to 3 times
per day. While doing the wash make sure to keep the eye widely opened
and rotate the eye in all directions.
* The number of drops that can be tolerated will vary with the individual
and their condition. If the wash seems too strong, lower the number
of drops until it feels comfortable.
* If eye is very irritated, inflamed, or infected, start with 3 to 5
drops and add more drops only if they can be well tolerated.
Note: Take extreme care not to contaminate the dropper
or the mouth of the bottle. Sterilize the eyecup before each use (boil
for 5 minutes).
Cautions: Discontinue use of this compound if it creates
redness or irritation.
If symptoms of eye irritation, infection or injury are severe or persist
for more than a few days, and especially if there is fever, promptly
seek qualified healthcare.
