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.

I am highly allergic to cats and get itchy eyes/face, runny nose, wheezing, etc. One day when my eyes and face were really itching, I remembered that I had just received Melaleuca alternifolia (Tea Tree) oil. I rubbed a drop or two neat around my eyes (not in them or on my eyelids), but around my cheek bones, my brow bone, and underneath my eyes. The itching subsided quite a bit, and with another application was bearable.

As a bonus, the smell of the oil seemed to help with the wheezing and runny nose as well. When I started feeling itchy or wheezy again, I would smell my hands, or hold them cupped over my eyes (not touching them) and rub the residue around my eyes, and it would subside.
