Black Tea for Pink-Eye (conjunctivitis)

IMG_0850

 

This is home remedy my Polish grandmother used on me as a kid for pink-eye. Whenever I got swollen, pink, crusty eyes from conjunctivitis, she would boil me a cup of black tea and apply the tea bags to my eyes while the bags were still warm. This works like magic at reducing the swelling. Black tea has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Try it and see how fast it works next time you have pink-eye. (Can also be used for swollen eyes in general, like after a night of crying after seeing that tear-jerking movie, etc.)
