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.

A coworker showed up at work with a stye. She said she gets them several times a year. The next morning I brought her a mix of 2 drops Lavender, 2 drops Frankincense, and 4 drops sweet almond oil.

She forgot to take the bottle home at the end of the workday (Friday afternoon), and I thought that she just didn't want to use it. On Monday morning she rushed to me when I arrived at work, telling me she came in Saturday morning to get the oil and applied it high on her eyelid and under her eye (not too close to the eye) twice on Saturday and twice on Sunday. The stye was gone Sunday night!

If the blend had been for my personal use, I would not have added the almond oil. But I diluted it for her because I wanted to reduce a possible negative experience if she had applied it directly on the stye and not just around the eye socket area.
