Soothing Eye Tea
Soothing Eye Tea
I've made something that helps to relieve my puffy allergy ridden eyes- it's my Soothing Eye Tea. We've all heard of placing cucumber slices over our eye lids, well I'm doing this concept one better! With a special botanical blend , I've created the ultimate Eye Tea! Its smells great and it's ultra calming effect is beneficial to your skin. Made with Lavender, Green Tea, Chamomile and Calendula;
The caffeine, antioxidants and tannins (an astringent) in green tea help treat puffy eyes as well as dark circles. They help shrink blood vessels underneath the delicate skin around the eyes. This in turn reduces swelling and puffiness. In addition, the vitamin K in green tea helps lighten dark circles under the eyes. The anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties of the other herbs help to fight free radicals and promote healthy skin.
To use (see pictures)- place ONE Eye Tea bag into a coffee mug, pour boiling water over to just over the top of the eye tea bag and let it steep until cool, you can store this in this in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 36 hours.
Dispose of said tea bag and use cotton pads. Make Sure that your hands are clean! Soak the cotton pads in the "tea", gently squeeze out excess moisture (you don't want this dripping down the side of your face while relaxing) and place them over your eye lids and relax for up to 20 minutes. Save your tea and use again later on in the day and the next day too! I do not however recommend keeping the "brewed eye tea" longer than 36 hours due to the possibility of bacterial growth.
**you can also freeze your eye tea soaked cotton pads (make sure to do this in a container that's been sanitized) and use as needed to reduce redness, swelling and puffiness.
**This can also be used as a natural facial toner.
