Eyebright herb has been used since medieval times as an eye lotion, a specific remedy for tired, inflamed, watering eyes. The name Euphrasia is of Greek origin, derived from Euphrosyne, Gladness, one of the three graces who was distinguished for her joy and mirth and gaiety. The gladness evidently results from the relief from the sufferer who has his sight restored and his sore eyes healed. Most herbalists today, while recognizing its use in eye pain and troubles, indicate that Eyebright is best used in cases of catarrh, especially if the discharges are acrid and irritating. It is most dramatically effective when the cold is acute, with abundant, watery secretion of mucus, attended with heat, pain, burning and sneezing (Fel E:369). It is often recommended for infant sniffles, where the baby seems to have a continual running nose, which often irritates the outer nose and runs down into the throat, causing soreness. If the cold goes into the ears, causing earaches, fullness of the ears, and temporary deafness, this remedy can relieve these distressing symptoms. Eyebright is useful both to prevent and to relieve, in the early stages, frontal sinusitis (Fel E:369). It controls the catarrh and eye pain during measles. The herb can be used in epidemic influenza, especially where there is a great deal of mucus discharge (Ell:252). Because of its ability to check such secretions and relieve inflammations, eyebright is used with some success in hay fever. It especially reduces the swelling and inflammation of the eyes sometimes severe in this aggravating condition. 100% vegetarian capsules.
