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 I felt like there was something in my eye that I couldn't flush out. By the time I went to bed, my eye was very red and irritated, and I thought maybe I had scratched it somehow.

I applied a drop of Sandalwood essential oil (only because I couldn't find my Frankincense or Copaiba) to the eyelid and patted a drop of Lavender raccoon-style around the bony part of the eye. Then I went to bed expecting to wake up with a worse situation.

This morning to my delight, I saw an eye that felt NORMAL. Wow! I had only been guessing about which oils to use. I was going for something that had anti-inflammatory properties. Both Lavender and Sandalwood have that.

Amazing!
