My family and I had gone into NYC to visit with some friends. The weather was very hot and oppressive. My son who was 13 years old had been complaining of eye pain off and on during the day as we walked around the city. I had felt maybe he was just over heated and was not drinking enough water.

That night he woke from his sleep in such eye pain. Fortunately I had my mini Essential Oils Desk Reference with me and looked up pain.

Well I chose lavender, peppermint and ravensara. I lightly rotated 2 of the 3 oils around his eyes, forehead. I Knew lavender helps with allergies, peppermint for pain and ravensara for sinus congestion. I wasn't sure of the cause but felt this would cover it. He felt better immediately.

Their was some residual after 15 minutes. So I put some peppermint around again. He gave me a big hug and said thank you. He said the eye pain was the worst and now I feel so much better. He was able to go back to sleep.

The next day we put a little peppermint and lavender as a preventative due to the pollutants in the air. He was fine the next night too.
