This fresh herbal tincture contains extracts of Euphrasia (Eyebright) for internal use.
This pretty little plant takes its name from one of the three graces, Euphrosyne, although it was not until the Middle Ages that its beneficial effects were noted, coming to be known as Eyebright.
It is a plant native to Britain and Europe, which grows to a height of 30cm and bears pale lilac flowers. It has been used as far back as the 17th Century in healthcare.
Alfred Vogel knew it as a wild plant which enjoys living in grassland, drawing nutrients from its companion plants. Collected in late summer, the aerial parts are used to create this remedy.
Alfred Vogel was a Swiss pioneer of natural health. Throughout his life, he championed the use of natural remedies in healthcare. Love of nature and the belief in its healing powers were at the heart of his work, and his legacy lives on in the range of herbal remedies which bear his name.
A Vogel is based on one of the core principles of Alfred Vogel - that health requires a holistic approach. A balanced lifestyle, a healthy diet and natural healing products play key roles in maintaining and restoring health.
Alfred Vogel made his preparations from freshly picked plants. The extra effort put into using fresh produce is what still distinguishes A Vogel from its competitors today. A Vogel products are manufactured using methods that are as close to nature as possible, using a sustainable approach to natural resources.
