The flower has was often turned into wine that was recommended to be consumed every morning and later as an ale. In Scotland, Highlanders infuse the flower blooms in milk and apply it with the tips of a feather to soothe eye strain. What a lovely application considering the fatigue our eyes go through staring at computer and phone screen throughout the day. As a British Herbal Tobacco, Eyebright was smoked to clear the lungs of congestion in cases of chronic bronchial conditions. Of course, you should always talk with your doctor before administering any of these forms of Eyebright and they are not replace any medication that your doctor has prescribed. It should also be noted that consuming Eyebright as a tea or tincture can affect insulin levels in diabetics.
Eyebright is an elegant little plant that only grows to about 2 to 8" inches high in Europe, Asia and North America that blooms July-September.
