Eyebright is effective, side effect free and cheaper than your co-pay at the doctors office! Not to mention that you'll have enough in the bottle for the next time your little one comes home with pink eye.
Eyebright is specifically recommended for congestion in the sinuses as it goes to work on the mucous membranes clearing what's called nasal catarrh (old school term for mucus). Any condition involving the mucous membranes will be improved with Eyebright as it is astringent, anti-inflammatory and anti-catarrhal.
If you don't care for tinctures the whole herb can be purchased at Mountain Rose Herbs website. Here's the link for that. The whole herb can be made as a tea and sipped throughout the day for pinkeye. It can also be used to make a compress for the eyes and this is very effective and soothing to individuals with conjunctivitis (aka pinkeye).
