How to Use Essential Oils for Vision?
Remember to always apply the oils around the eye socket of your eye. Never put them in your eyes because that will be very painful! But, in case you do, do not use water to flush it out! It will only spread it more. Instead use another carrier oil like olive oil, coconut, almond, etc to get it out easily.
