Eyebright (Euphrasia officinalis)
How does the old nursery rhyme go? ‘Eyebright, eyebright, first herb I see tonight…’ Is that it, or are our eyes deceiving us? Well, if we know one thing, it’s that even the rosiest-colored glasses can’t do for worldview and perspective shifting what a cup of tea can, and especially when that tea involves eyebright. Need a change of lens or a new prescription altogether? Eyebright might be just the paradigm puncher that you were always looking for and haven’t seen until just now.
As for the dirt on why, how, and when to use this herb, it’s up to you to hit the books / browsers and do a little sleuthing of your own. We’ll be here for you if you need a hand – or an herb – to hold.
