1 week ago my daughter awoke to a swollen eyelid with very painful bump. Due to FDA regulations I am not allowed to say the clinical name but I’m sure we all know what this irritating infection is. First thing that came to my mind to assist in making this thing go away was my trusty friend Lavender!
I grabbed a few q-tips, my lavender, and my olive oil… I used a 1 to 1 ration of Lavender to Olive oil and put it on the q-tip… I instructed my daughter to spread it along the lower lash line but NOT into the eye! Lo & Behold 4 hours later the swelling on the lid had reduced by half….SWEET! We applied the lavender/Olive Oil combo to the lid 4 more times that day by the next morning it was smaller yet again…. Not gone but definitely better then it was just 24 hrs. before. We continued to apply the combo another 4 times that day. Day 3 arrives and by george it was almost gone… She applied the combo again 3 more times that day and by the end of the day the bacterial infection had taken a hike! Her eyelid was completely healthy with no signs of swelling anywhere! In 3 days we had managed to kick this Bacterial infection in the keister and sent it packing… All I can say was my Daughter was elated and so was I quite frankly since I myself know how painful those infections can be! Anyone that has had one of these infections knows they take on the average of 5-7 days to heal on their own and Young Living Lavender assisted us in getting rid of it in 3 DAYS!!!
