Good Morning All!
*Yawn* Sorry about that! After a week and a half away from the computer screen due to my recent move, I find myself in front of it for far too many hours trying to catch up with too many things. I’m finding that this new routine is taking a real toll on my eyes.
For those of you who spend countless hours in front of a screen whether it be computer or T.V. (you know who you are) 🙂
All of that screen time can be harsh on your poor widdle eyes. In the Summer, for you avid swimmers, the chlorine in the water can also be harsh on your eyes.
Here are a few super simple recipes to clear, relieve and brighten your tired eyes.
NOTE: Make certain to apply all of these treatments to clean (no make-up) eyes.
Simple General Relief For Tired Eyes:
- 1 cup distilled water
- 1 tablespoon chamomile flowers
Bring the water to a boil and remove from the heat. Add the dried flowers and cover and steep for about 30 minutes. Strain the brew through a coffee filter. Pour into a sterilized storage container with an air tight lid. You may refrigerate this brew for up to 7 days.
Application: Lightly mist open eyes, add this brew to a clean/sterilized bottle with dropper lid or an eye cup is also good to use.
Recipes For Specific Eye Irritant Causes:
Tip 1 Relief For Allergy Eyes: Chrysanthemum tea. Soak eyes with this tea while reclined for about 15 minutes or as long as needed. If the tea is not bagged but is loose tea leaves, cover eyes with a facial tissue and cover the affected area with the cool tea leaves after boiling.
Tip 2 For Over-Stressed Eyes: After drinking your cup of Bilberry tea, apply the cooled tea bags to your eyes. This will help to alleviate tired, puffy eyes and help to improve vision clarity due to eye irritation.
Tip 3 Relief For Hormonal Eye Irritations: Green tea works very well, as does a tea made of nettles. Soak eyes with boiled, cooled tea bags while reclined for 15 minutes or as long as needed.
Tip 4 Super Soothing Eye Relief: This recipe is a good overall soothing formula for any red, tired or puffy eye issue.
- Bring 2 cups of water to a boil
- Add 4 tablespoons Calendula flower
- 2 tablespoons lavender buds/flowers
- Steep and let cool completely.
Soak cotton balls in the tea, gently squeeze excess liquid from cotton balls and apply gently to under eye area while reclined.
Refrigerate and save the unused portion in a clean and air tight container for the next time you need fast relief from tired, red and puffy eyes.
*yawn* OK now I’m tired all over again 🙂 I’m going to try one of these recipes now. Hope you do too! If you do please let me know by leaving a comment on this article. Thanks!
Oh and thanks for reading and as always…
All The Best To You!!!
