Known elsewhere as Euphrasia, Euphrasia officinalis, or the other common names of of Meadow eyebright and Red Eyebright, Eyebright has seen use for a long time, and has been mentioned numerous times within folk medicine. As one might imagine from the name, it is most commonly associated with the treatment of conditions of the eyes.
In modern treatments, the focus of eyebright is still upon the eyes. There the folk medicine treatments still prevail, where it is used as a wash for the eyes, as well as a compress when the eyes are inflamed or irritated. It has also been used for conjunctivitis, belepharitis, tired eyes, styes, and numerous other such conditions.
Indeed, the name Euphrasia is of Greek origin, being derived from the Greek word Euphrosyne, which is word for Gladness, who was one of the three Graces who was known for her joy and mirth. The name is thought to be a play upon this, with the thought being that Eyebright (or Euphrasia) would bring gladness and joy to those who suffered from afflictions of the eyes. Spiritually, it has been used as a component to spells and rituals wherein you are seeking changes in perception and attitude, visionary experiences, and also as an aid in improving the memory.
