One of these natural recipes is the herbal compress. The same is made from the use of elderflower, euphrasia and marigold. All of these medicinal plants are known for the potential of their calming properties.
In addition, they also have anti-inflammatory and astringent properties, which are responsible for reducing the secretions produced by the eyes when they are irritated, which also ends up relieving symptomatic occurrences such as redness, burning and, of course, itching.
- 1 teaspoon of dried elderflower
- 1 teaspoon of dry euphrasia
- 1 teaspoon of dried marigold
- 250 ml of water
Add all the ingredients in a pan with 250 ml of water and bring to the fire. Then let the mixture stand for 15 minutes. Afterwards, use a filter to strain the infusion. Afterwards, soak pieces of cotton in the mixture and apply them to eyes that are affected by the irritation. It is important to emphasize that the application of the compress should only be done for, at most, three times a day and with a maximum duration of 10 minutes.
