Never growing more than a foot and inches above their woody roots, Eyebright plants creep along the ground, their jagged deep green leaves and purple-veined lilac-and-white flowers helping their stems stand out from the grass. As per its name, eyebright has its uses in helping clear clouded eyes or helping wash out injured eyes. Drunk as a tea infusion from the flowers, eyebright is a stimulant and helps focus the mind. It needs little preparation or special treatment for preservation, save to macerate the flowers to keep them more than a few weeks. It is sometimes referred to as the Magician's eyes.
