For older children and adults (those that can resist touching the area):
Apply 2 or 3 drops each of melaleuca essential oil and Purify blend around the socket of the eye. Put drops in palm of hand and apply oils from palm to eye with tip of your finger.
For younger children:
Using a hard shell eye patch (available at the pharmacy) apply 2 drops each of Melaleuca essential oil and Purify blend to 1/3 of a cotton pad and then place the cotton pad in the eye patch. Place the oils side of the cotton patch to the outside, where it will not contact the eye or eyelid directly. Place the eye patch over the affected eye.
Repeat the above procedures 2 to 4 times during the day. At the same time rub eucalyptus oil on the feet.
At night repeat the eye treatment and rotate from eucalyptus to oregano for the feet. Repeat the daily protocol until redness disappears and two days following.
Caution the child not to rub or scratch the eye and place socks on the feet so that oils are not transferred from the feet to other areas.
