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.

Over 20 years ago I had an eyelid rash that would appear and return every year in the fall. I tried changing my eye makeup numerous times, but nothing helped. With each year, the time period that the rash was active increased until it was a year-round rash.

The rash on my eyelid was itchy and flaky. In the mornings I would peel off the flake-like scab to reveal a red, oozy, nasty eyelid. After seeing numerous doctors and ophthalmologists, everything that was prescribed only kept the rash at bay. It was a vicious cycle.

The last ophthalmologist was appalled that I had been using a steroid on my eyelids for 20 years. She said that the steroid cream would thin the skin and that I definitely would not want that! Yet after her failed attempts, she prescribed another steroid!

At that time I had decided that I would have this rash for the rest of my life. I had begun using therapeutic-grade essential oils; but with the warnings of using essential oils carefully only around the eyes (not in or on them), I was hesitant to try the oils on my rash.

Then I received an award of the ART Day Activator. I read all over the box, and with no warnings about the eyes, I carefully placed a small amount on my eyelids. There was a slight stinging, but with what I had been through, I was not going to give up!

Only for a few days did this moisturizer sting and feel uncomfortable after each application. And in no time the rash had totally vanished! It has been over 12 months and the rash has not returned!

I will continue to use the ART Day Activator on my eyelids periodically, just to be sure that it never returns. So far there has been an answer through the use of essential oils for every issue I have attempted to solve.

The pathogenesis of Demodex blepharitis in eliciting ocular surface inflammation has been further clarified. 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
