Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

After struggling for a while with what I thought was a scratch on a contact lens, I took out the contact lens and wore my glasses instead. However, my eye still felt swollen, and I started seeing yellow discharge around my eyelashes and in the inside corner of my eye (lacrimal caruncle).

One testimonial at mentioned using Purification essential oil blend. So I put a drop on my eyebrow, on my cheekbone (not too close to the eye), across the bridge of my nose, and along my neck (from behind my ear and downward). My eye started to feel better, so I repeated the protocol again before I went to bed.

In the morning my eye had a crusty substance near the eyelashes and more yellow discharge in the inside corner of my eye. I washed off the crusty stuff and discharge and applied Purification essential oil blend again. There were no more symptoms after that.

The modified eyelash sampling and counting method makes it easier and more accurate to diagnose Demodex infestation. Tea tree oil shows promising potential to treat Demodex blepharitis by reducing Demodex counts with additional antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory actions."Link
