Pink Eye and Essential Oils

Pink eye, or conjunctivitis, is redness and inflammation of the membranes (conjunctiva) covering the whites of the eyes and the membranes on the inner part of the eyelids. Tea Tree(Melaleuca alternifolia), Manuka or Lavender can help!

Dilute any of the oils mentioned above 20:80, with an organic vegetable oil such as; olive oil or sweet almond oil and rub a WIDE circle around the eye(above the brow and underneath the cheek bone).  You can also Diffuse 10-15 drops of the oils at night-time while sleeping. 

NOTE:  If essential oils should ever accidentally get into the eyes, dilute with a pure vegetable oil.  NEVER rinse with water.
