Dear herbpathy team
Thank you for your prompt response, much appreciated. First of all I would like to say I am really impressed with this website, I think it is very informative and well managed. I did read about eyebright and it seems really beneficial but my herbalist said to take Sphaeranthus Indicus. What is your opinion on this?
Thank You
