Lemon Balm Tea For Styes:

-50 grams Fresh Lemon Balm (leaves & stems)

-1 cup Boiling Water

Directions:

1. Put water on to boil.

2. Rinse lemon balm with water and dry with a towel.

3. Rip/tear lemon balm and put in a cup or bowl.

4. Pour boiling water over lemon balm, cover, & steep for 30 minutes-1 hour or more.

5. Pour steeped lemon balm mix through a mesh strainer into another container to separate the leaves from the liquid.

6. Store in a container with lid in fridge for up to 1 week. Freeze any extra liquid you won't be using. (Tip: Freeze in ice cube trays so you have just the right amount that you can pull out for a day or two.)

7. Apply to eye with a cotton ball or round multiple days until the stye is gone. Try to squeeze a drop directly into your eye as well (it doesn't burn and is very soothing).

Notes:

Usually takes swelling down significantly in 8-12 hours and fully takes it down in 1-3 days.

"These aromatherapy inhalers are amazing! After just a minute or two my ailment is gone! I like to keep myself stocked up on some of the varieties to give away to friends and family who are having problems. I had a nephew over a few months ago who kept coughing non-stop. I gave him a breathe inhaler, and after just a few minutes he stopped coughing. He took it home with him and continued to use it. I love the power of natural products!"
