WOW - what one drop of Peppermint oil can do! The husband of my pedicurist walked in the shop just as I was ready to leave and asked me if I knew anything "natural" to help with his eyelid. 3 days earlier their large puppy had jumped up on him and with its paw nail hit him in the eye. Due to the pain that did not go away, he went to the doctor 2 days ago and the doctor, upon examining the eyeball noticed that it was slightly scratched but stated that the swollen eyelid may be due to some cactus hair on the dog's nail being driven in the eyelid and getting infected. He gave the man a prescription that did not help.

I only had a few oils in my purse and figured that of those the Peppermint might be the best for it. I put one drop of oil in his palm, had him rub it with his index finger, and then run the index finger along the bone around the eye first and then just hold the index finger on the swollen eyelid.

In about 3 minutes he took the finger off and said it felt a lot better already. It also looked a lot better as the swelling had gone way down. I had also suggested as so not to waste the precious oil to cup his oiled palm over his nose and inhale. He then commented that his sinuses felt a lot better, too.
