Did you know that Chamomile tea can cure pink eyes or also known as conjunctivitis?
Chamomile is one of the most well-known herbs.
It is largely available in tea forms.
Ways to Use Chamomile
- As an herbal tea before bedtime to help improve relaxation and sleep
- As a tincture (internally or externally) for muscle pain or for teething children (on the gums)
- As a tincture for children who have trouble sleeping or who are emotionally upset
- As a strong brewed tea in the hair to naturally lighten blonde tones
- To help relax during emotional or physical distress (I use the tincture internally during labor to help ease contractions and help me relax)
- Internally and externally for headache relief
- As a tincture to help calm hyper children
- For pink eye: Pour a small amount of boiling water over a chamomile tea bag and soak on the eye for about 15 minutes a few times a day (wait until its cool) OR make a strong tea with it and use a soaked cotton ball to wipe the eye every hour throughout the day and infection should be gone within 24-36 hours. Can also sleep with a cotton ball “patch” on the eye to help remove the infection.
