For the past several years as my eyes have aged, I have looked for ways to support them staying healthy. I decided to look into building up the health of my eyes naturally. After all, what could it hurt to try, right? I did a ton of research and found some ideas worth investing in.
I discovered three things that I decided to work with (I am sure there are more, but this is what I did). I guess I should have been scientific about it and tried them one at a time to see which one was the most effective. But I didn’t feel like I had time for that since my eyes were getting older by the day.
1. Frankincense. Yep, I can use essential oils for my eyes! But I can’t put them directly into my eyes. So what I do is every morning and night (2x/day) I put a drop into my palm and rub my hands together so there’s some on both hands. Then I cup my palms over my eyes and open my eyes as wide as I can, looking around to expose as much of my eyeball to the oil as I can. (note: if you try this you will feel a tingling and your eyes will water. This is supposed to happen as the frankincense molecules disperse, but it is not harmful.) Then I rub what’s left on my hands over my cheekbone just below my eyes and leave it on.
Truthfully, I was slow to start using frankincense because it was a stranger to me except for being a gift of the wise men to Jesus. But as I started to learn more and more about essential oils I would see it on many pages of my reference book as a suggestion for everything. No wonder it was a great gift for the King!
2. NingXia Red. This is one of Young Living’s best products! It’s a drink with wolfberry and several essential oils. Wolfberry has more beta-carotene than carrots and it’s high in antioxidants, which is essential for eye health. I only drink an ounce each morning, so one bottle lasts about a month.
3. Omegagize. I read a lot that suggests taking Omega-3 can really help with the health of your eyes, so I started taking it daily. It’s important to take a quality product and not just something from the supermarket. I completely trust the products from Young Living. You have to be careful who you buy these things from!
I have been doing all three of these every day for the past 3 months, plus I am sure to drink plenty of water, and I am amazed at how great my eyes feel! I can drive at night and my eyes are nice and moist. It’s been a surprise to me. Truthfully, I had very low expectations.
I will keep up this regimen and let you know if anything changes, good or bad.
