Plantain and Eyebright Compound
Plantain and Eyebright Compound is a spicy blend of herbs traditionally used to provide relief from chronic nasal catarrh and rhinitis. This complex formula contains small amounts of many herbs to tone and reduce inflammation in the mucous membranes, whether due to allergies, a cold or a chronic issue. This traditional combination of astringent, anti-inflammatory, anti-allergenic and mucous thinning herbs can be taken when required for some relief from acute symptoms or for more entrenched issues try it three times a day until you finish the bottle.
