My 3 week old grandson had a red, gunky eye that was swollen completely shut. My daughter's midwife had recommended a goldenseal eyewash. While we were waiting the 20 minutes for the goldenseal to steep, I decided to try essential oils. I really didn't know what was wrong with his eye but looked under conjunctivitis in the Essential Oil Desk Reference, which also mentioned blocked tear ducts. Since I was new with the oils and a little nervous about using them on anyone but myself, I heavily diluted the Young Living essential oil of Lavender in olive oil and rubbed it around his eye from the bridge of his nose, over his eyebrow and over his cheekbone.
In about 10 minutes we checked his eye and it was perfectly normal. No redness or swelling and amazingly, no goop! My mother, my daughter and I stood there with our mouthes open. Whatever was wrong with his eye, it was gone. These oils are amazing.
