I have had dark circles under my eyes nearly all my life. I even have elementary school pictures that show my dark circles under my eyes! HOWEVER, I absolutely SWEAR by oil pulling with pure unrefined sesame seed oil every morning and evening to get rid of undereye circles (1 tsp swished for about 10 minutes, rinse with diluted H202). It really works! I don't really know why; I assume it eliminates impurities that accumulate under your eyes resulting in the appearance of dark circles. I also find that a dab of castor oil applied around the eyes before bedtime reduces the appearance of dark circles. Good luck! I hope it works just as great for you and others!
My son is doing well..i have started giving him lemon and baking soda regularly every night . I also give him Chinese parsely. I have been using it liberally in our food ...being Indians we love the flavor. However I didn't know its use. He also takes b50 complex twice a week. Just wanted to update you and say thanks for your remedies. I have spent hundreds of dollars in tonics and supplements without knowing the remedy is so simple. Also, I have been oil pulling last 1 month now -- I don't have any dark circles any more.
Though i come from the country where Ayurveda was invented and popular, thanx to Earth Cinic in giving me insight on Oil pulling therapy. I started with sesame oil the first week did for 10mts, now 20mts starting from mid jan2007. It helped me with totally arresting from bleeding gums and black circles under my eyes dissapeared. I used to get sleep only at 5am and now i sleep by maximum 10.30. So far I have benefited gums cure/dark circles and good night sleep. Therefore I recommend to all. It is win win situation any which way. No side effects, cheaper remedy and simple too
