Symptoms include feeling like something is in the eyes, redness, stinging, blurred vision, a dry sensation or scratching in the eyes, and pain. Dry eye occurs when the eyes are not lubricated properly and may become exacerbated in certain conditions such as in an air-conditioned room or on an airplane.

Lavender is a herb that is incredibly soothing, calming and cooling when applied topically. It has proven anti-stress benefits along with anti-inflammatory properties to support eye health. To use, prepare a bowl full of warm water and apply two to three drops of lavender essential oil into it. Mix well and soak two cotton balls in the mixture. Place the cotton balls on the eyes and let sit for ten minutes before rinsing off with warm water. Do not get any oil in the eyes.
