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.


My new granddaughter was born on Jan. 14, 2008. About 4 days later, her right eye was a terrible mess: red, matted, and weeping. Her mother called the pediatrician, explained the situation, and was told that she had a clogged tear duct. it was very normal, about 30% of newborns develop it. It would probably last from 2 months to a year and if it wasn't cleared up by then, they would do some sort of probing and open it up.

I found an article in the "big green book" about clogged tear ducts. It said that you should rub one drop of Lavender on the bridge of the nose (I was hoping it was okay to use on a newborn, but knowing what i do about Lavender I was sure it would be safe). The article said that it could be cleared in a matter of seconds and it was!

Our beautiful baby girl now has her lovely clear eyes again. I can never say enough good things about Lavender oil.
