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.

Yesterday morning I noticed that my right eye was scratchy. When taking my contact out, I must have REALLY scratched my eyeball because I couldn't keep my eye open and it was constantly dripping with tears and even causing sinus problems.

Not much knocks me down, but this did! It hurt so badly that I was considering a trip to the emergency room (of course it would happen on a Sunday when my opthalmologist was not in office).

By afternoon, it was only slightly better, but enough that I could put on some reader glasses and look up on this website what others might have suggested.

One person said to use Lavender oil, so I put a drop around the occipital bone and then just laid my finger on the closed eyelid. I repeated this about 4 times before going to bed, and then once again during the night about 3:00 am.

This morning NO PAIN, the swelling is almost gone, and no sight impairment!!

Thanks, Lavender oil and Oil-Testimonials, for saving me a very expensive trip to the emergency room or my eye doctor!
