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.

Since my testimonial about hay fever and Lavender, I have had a super aggressive attack of hey fever which caused the most intense eye itching I've ever experienced with any hay fever attacks.

This day I used the Lavender as suggested in the essential oils reference book, and this did, indeed, cause the itching puffy eyes, sneezing, and nasal congestion to subside. But the very rims of my eyelids continued to itch profusely, which became unbearable to the point where I just had to find relief.

Knowing that oils can't be applied to the eyes, I started to think of the Young Living products I have that aren't oils. Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier came instantly to mind, and I proceeded very cautiously to apply it around the eye area. It didn't burn, so I applied it a bit closer in, and this too was soothing rather than burning. I continued to apply it closer to my eyes each time, and I noted the increase in the heat sensation as each application penetrated the more delicate eye tissue.

Eventually I very carefully got to the rim of my eyelids and applied the solution. By this time I was accustomed to the heat and the subsequent relief from the intense itching. The heat was quite severe for a few seconds, but also quite tolerable because of the immediate relief as it eased slowly off over the next minute.

I came to the conclusion that the intensity of the itch required something equally as intense and more, in the form of the heat generated, in order to zap the itch in its tracks.

I have gotten this in my eyes on odd occasions, and as with getting oil in them, I rub good vege oil in and in no time my eyes are fine.

Everyone has their own level of tolerating discomfort, so if you do try this, please be aware of yours.
