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. Each of these tinctures are easy to make individually.
This mix is specifically formulated for sinus and chest congestion. It breaks up mucus that blocks the airways and eases breathing.
