Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

I have had a few minor styes in my day... but nothing like this one, which was large and sore.

When I looked from side to side, I could feel the stye pressing against the eye. It felt like something was scraping against my eye.

I tried everything from hot compresses to over-the-counter ointments. I even went to the doctor to try his solutions and considered seeing a specialist for a more in-depth intervention.

Around that time I was starting to use therapeutic-grade essential oils, and I read that I could put Lavender essential oil on the bridge of my nose to help treat a stye. So that is what I did.

I put my finger over the opening of the Lavender bottle, tipped it over, and used just that little bit on my finger to place on the bridge of my nose. I topically applied Lavender on the bridge of my nose in this manner twice a day for 2 weeks.

One morning I felt a stinging sensation in that eye. I looked closer and realized that, not only had the stye gotten smaller, but it had migrated from the center of the lower lid to the opening of the tear duct. I then brushed my finger across the opening and removed the white material that had pushed itself out.

It did take a little time, but it was far less invasive than going to a specialist and far more effective than their eye drops would have been.
