Herbal Remedy for Pink Eye

The herb Eyebright has astringent and antibacterial properties to drawl out infections such as pink eye and soothe eyes.

Make an infusion:

Pour 1 cup boiling water over 1 teaspoon of dried eyebright herb.
Steep for 10 minutes; Strain and allow to cool.

Now you can use this infusion in a few different ways:
You can use as an eyewash 3-4 times a day.
You can also use as a warm compress:
Take a soft cloth and dip into infusion while still warm, gently ring out cloth and apply to eyes. Repeat as cloth cools. You may need to reheat your infusion. Leave the compress on the eyes for at least 10 minutes.

You can also purchase eyebright tincture already made from a herbal shop. Put three drops of eyebright tincture in a tablespoon of boiled water. When cool, use as an eyewash.

Wash your hand REALLY good after handling your eyes to stop the spread of pink eye. Use a herbal hand sanitizer for your hands afterward.
