Tea bags are good for more than enjoying a hot cup of it.
If you find yourself with allergy symptoms, long hours on the computer, or weather conditions 
playing havoc with your eyes, 
                        did you know you can
soothe tired, irritated eyes
by using chamomile tea bags.
Soak the bags in ice water for a few minutes,
lie down and place them over your eyelids.

You'll have relief in no time.
