What is the best way to use Agrimony for healing Glaucoma or cataracts of the eye? Or does Agrimony have any effect on these eye diseases? Would a salve containing Agrimony work well to rub over the affected eye lid a few times a day and at night before bedtime? Or an eye wash?
Any suggestions with this would be sincerely appreciated.
Thank you
