I’ve shared a few times how much I love my essential oils. Well today I want to share one more.
Jemma has been getting eye styes on her right eye. They come out of nowhere. Originally I was treating it with some medicine we had (prescription) but her styes got worse instead of better after 3 days of use. I decided to turn to my oils, which I admit I should have done first.
Here is what she looked like on Day one (pardon the cookie messy face):
It was this day that I started her on a twice daily treatment with Lavender and Melaleuca. Each morning and each night I put about 4 drops of Fractionated Coconut Oil, 1-2 drops of Lavender, and 1-2 drops of Melaleuca in my palm. I then used my finger and mixed it together and rubbed a line underneath her eye. It does NOT need to touch the stye itself but with our oils, it wouldn’t harm her. It would just be uncomfortable possibly.
The day after the picture was taken, she looked worse but the stye was actually starting to heal. Day 3 was slightly better. Day 4, well the picture says it all.
That’s right! The stye is GONE!!! I will continue treatment for 2 more days as this seems to help keep the stye from coming back.
The best part? Jemma doesn’t fight me on this and she was very unhappy with the ointment. This doesn’t change her vision. This doesn’t have side effects. The essential oils did the job that the ointment wouldn’t do and they did it in a way that I feel good about!
Now, when we see first signs of a stye, we apply the essential oils and the stye doesn’t even develop! We avoid all the pain that comes with them thanks to our essential oil treatment!
