Did you know that flowers aren’t just beautiful to look at? They are actually good for the health of your eyes as well! Chrysanthemum flower, Ju Hua in Mandarin, has cooling and nourishing effects on the eyes. Drinking chrysanthemum tea can help to relieve headaches, fevers, and the common cold (with sore throat and fever). Chrysanthemum is also used for red and painful eyes, poor eyesight, blurred vision, dry eyes, and glaucoma. For a soothing eye treatment, soak a clean washcloth in a cooled bowl of chrysanthemum tea and gently place the wrung-out washcloth (folded in thirds) on the eyes for 10 to 15 minutes. Not only will your eyes feel refreshed, but you will feel rested as well!
