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 step father is in the hospital and as he's had a stroke he's incapable of doing certain things. His eye was bothering him -watering, "gluing shut". I kept wiping his eye for him until I suspected that he had an eye infection.

Well, just my luck - typically if someone has pink eye, or talks about someone who has pinkeye - I get it instantly. That evening driving home, my eyes were already starting to "glue shut". I checked the "Essential Oil Desk reference" and it suggested taking Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea tree) and in a wide circle around the eyes apply the oil. Being very careful not to get the oil in my eyes I did this four times that evening and all symptoms of pinkeye were GONE the next morning...
