My oldest son is constantly having allergy issues…we have to be careful and watch what he eats or touches while we are out and about. The crazy thing is that it is not always consistent. It seems that some foods or air irritants bother him sometimes and not others. I try to pay close attention to these things, but it seems that whenever I think I have it figured out, something changes! So here is one of our natural remedies for when his allergies act up; it is also great for pink eye!
This was him on a particularly bad day…poor guy!
Honey Eye Wash~
2 cups water
1/2 cup honey
Bring the water and honey mixture to a rolling boil, stirring constantly. After it boils, let cool completely.
When cooled, fill a bottle with a small tip opening (I used a saline bottle I had washed out). Hold your head over the sink or tub and with your eye slightly open, gradually pour the Honey Eye Wash over your eye. Repeat for the other eye if needed. The unused portion can be saved for up to a week. Just be sure to shake well before each use.
My son’s eye usually clears up in a day or two when we use this remedy. Simple and inexpensive, no eye drops required!
