Eyebright is a short, flowering annual plant that is found in many alpine meadows. Its small, white or purplish flowers appear from July to mid-September.
Eyebright was used by herbalists towards the end of the Middle Ages and through the Renaissance as remedy for all kinds of eye ailments, including conjunctivitis, ophthalmia and blepharitis. Eyebright's anti-inflammatory, anti-septic and anti-bacterial properties certainly helped, and it's also rich in Vitamins A and E. It's these same properties that make it a valuable addition to skin care products.
