Top 10 Natural Treatments for Eye Styes

My daughter had a painful sty in her eye a few days ago. I used to get them when I was a girl and remember how uncomfortable they can be.

At night before my daughter went to bed, I poured hot water over a tea bag and let it sit for a few minutes. (Just enough to cover the tea bag) I squeezed out the tea bag so it was just damp and warm (body temperature.) I placed the tea bag on the closed eye that had a sty. I put a piece of plastic wrap over the tea bag (so it would stay moist longer) and attached all of that to her head with a bandana. She went to sleep. The next day when she woke up it was almost completely better and with no more pain.

I love chamomile for its many applications. It is gentle but powerful. It is great for infections, inflammation, and especially for eye issues. Plus it makes a tasty and relaxing tea before bed. If you keep a box of chamomile tea in the pantry you will have a box of ready to use medicine for a number of health issues. (Chamomile should not be used, however, if you have a ragweed allergy.)
