natural remedy for irritated eyes

Are you looking for natural remedies for irritated eyes? If then, don’t look too far. Here in this post, I will share a great recipe I’ve  found at TheNerdyFarmWife, that might help you ease uncomfortable feeling of having irritated eyes.

Jan, the author of the blog, reveals that calendula is an effective natural way to soothe irritated eyes. It has anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties. She had made a calendula tea, cooled it a bit and applied compresses of it to her eyes. She started feeling better after the first application on the day, and before night, there’s no more trace of scratchy redness.

According to Jan, this calendula eyewash is a great natural remedy for irritated eyes caused by: allergies, pool water, dryness, dust, wind, eye strain and even pink eye. But if there’s severe eye pain, and you are diabetic or have other chronic conditions that affect your eyes, it’s better to consult a medical professional to be safe.

How to Make Calendula Eye Wash

To make this recipe, you need to prepare dried or fresh calendula flowers and water.


Before beginning, make sure your hands and work area are scrupulously clean. Add a large pinch (tablespoon or two) of dried calendula flowers in a heat proof cup. Pour boiling water over the flowers, cover the cup with a saucer and let steep for 15 to 20 minutes. Strain through a coffee filter to ensure you remove any small particles that could lead to further eye irritation.
