Eyestrain Ease Tincture Blend

Eyestrain Ease Tincture Blend

This recipe was formulated specifically for eyestrain I experience while working on the computer. I had a job that required hours of continuous data processing while I stared at a screen. This blend is what I thank for the fact that my eyes didn’t burn by the end of the day. Ideally, this formula would be accompanied by daily eye exercises. These are common herbal tinctures available at most health food stores or on the internet. Each of these tinctures are also easy to make individually.

Ingredients

Equipment

  • measuring cups
  • a spatula
  • a funnel
  • a label
  • a large dark bottle with lid

I suggest making a minimum batch size of 4 ounces.  It is easier to fill a small 1 ounce bottle with a dropper, also labelled, as a usage bottle then refill it with the larger bottle to reserve for bulk storage.

Procedure

  1. Gather the ingredients along with the equipment in a clean, well lit, work space.
  2. Pour the individual ingredients, one at a time, into a clear measuring cup.
  3. Mix the ingredients carefully.
  4. Using a funnel, pour the mixture into a darkly-colored glass bottle and cap it securely.
  5. Label the bottle with the name of the tincture blend and add the date.

Storage and Use

Store your tincture bottle in a cool dark place. Tinctures have a shelf life of 5 to 7 years depending on the quality of your storage conditions.

Recommended dosage for adults: 20 drops, 2 times daily with meals.
