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.

A few years ago i was power-washing my shed, which was green with mold. Water splashed in my eyes, and, sure enough, the next day one eye was "gunky".

I looked in the essential oils reference book, and there was no specific listing for mold in the eye. So I tried the protocol for "pink eye", which is to put Lavender under the eyebrows.

The next day both eyes were "gunky." I did not have the time or desire to see a doctor and then inevitably have to put antibiotic medicine in my eyes for days. I thought about which oil to use and decided that Frankincense is the "big guy" and worth a try.

I used the same protocol, putting just a drop under my eyebrows, and went about my business. Several hours later I thought to check my eyes, and, lo and behold, the "gunk" was gone! And that was the end of the entire episode.

Later I learned that Frankincense has been used for eons for eye infections. One more miracle from Frankincense!
