Tea-riffic Pink Eye Remedy

by Julana

June 2008

Pink eye is pretty scary to a lot of people. It jumps from one person to the next very quickly. It's actually just a cold in the eye.

A GREAT way to get rid of this is by using chamomile tea bags. Soak and place on eye for a few minutes. If you have small children who won't sit still, just soak a tea bag and use a wet cotton ball every 10-15 min. to wipe the infected eye. Usually clears up within 24 hours.

I received my shipment in the mail yesterday. The book Practical Herbalism is everything your site says it is and more, and I am enjoying Mama's Red Raspberry Brew! I am very impressed with your amazingly fast processing and shipping. Keep up the good work. I've already been telling all my friends about your store, and I am looking forward to placing another order soon.


Did You Know?

Daily sprinkling a little Cayenne powder on the toothpaste on your toothbrush can work miracles in fighting and preventing gum disease. That's right! It will also help deal with other oral ailments that plague many folks these days. After reading about this, we just had to try it. There is a warm sensation in your mouth as you brush your teeth, but it soon disappears after rinsing. As always, whenever using Cayenne powder, you should start with very small amounts to allow the body some time to build up a tolerance. The first few times we used it, we sprinkled so little of the powder on the toothpaste that we didn't feel anything. As the days progressed, we increased the amounts slightly until we felt it was warm enough. After using it for a little while, the nice feeling in your mouth is very satisfying. Be warned, however, that you do not want to overdo this one, so start small.
