So I had a weird situation happen last night. I was flossing my teeth, which I do every night, and somehow the floss flung a chunk of something in my right eye. I tried to rinse it out but apparently did a poor job of it because when I woke up at 3 AM I knew I had pink eye!
I'm guessing from the bacteria from my mouth? Who knows? Maybe I touched something yesterday, and however it happened this was my cure. I woke up to my eye feeling gooey and painful. I shot out of bed, looked in the mirror, and saw it was stuck shut with green goo! Once I got it open it was bloodshot, red, and very painful to light and movement.
I thought what oils can I use?!? I looked in my handbook, and it only said Jasmine, which I don't own. It also said to diffuse, which I needed something stronger. I looked on Pinterest, which is my next go-to. Nothing was on there, but I knew I had seen it somewhere.
Finally I found my Gently Babies book by Debra Raybern, and it said to use one drop of Melrose and one drop of Lavender. I put the two in the palm of my hand, mixed them together, and rubbed it on my temple and around my entire infected eye socket without getting any in my eye. It says to rub it in until no oil residue is present. I did this and also took an Inner Defense pill and went back to sleep.
I woke up at 6 AM, and my eye was no longer red. It didn't hurt, and there was only a very small amount of green pus!!!! I applied the oils one more time at 6 and went to work by 8 with no visible sign of ever having pink eye. In my past experience, I've had to go to the doctor, get eye drops, and use them for about 7 days or so.
Wow, I'm so thrilled I didn't have to pay a doctor and miss work for days due to an eye infection. Thanks Young Living Essential Oils yet again!!!!
