A. Vogel Eyebright
Eye Health Supplement
Extract of fresh Euphrasia officinalis
This pretty little plant takes its name from one of the three graces, Euphrosyne, although it was not until the Middle Ages that its beneficial effects were noted, coming to be known as Eyebright. Alfred Vogel knew it as a wild plant which enjoys living in grassland, drawing nutrients from its companion plants. Collected in late summer, the aerial parts are used to create this remedy.
Benefits and features of A.Vogel Eyebright tincture:
Helps maintain healthy eyes
Contains extract of Euphrasia (Eyebright) tincture for internal use
It is a plant native to Britain and Europe, which grows to a height of 30cm and bears pale lilac flowers. It has been used as far back as the 17th Century in healthcare and was decribed by Milton in 'Paradise Lost' to clear Adam's sight:
'...but to nobler sights
Michael from Adams eyes the Filme remov'd
Which that false Fruit that promis'd clearer sight
Had bred; then purg'd with Euphrasie and Rue
The visual Nerve, for he had much to see;
And from the Well of Life three drops instill'd.'
