Itchy Eyes? Want Relief?

My allergies have been ferocious the last couple of days.  I have spent endless hours rubbing at them only to make things worse.  I have finally decided it is time to take some action.

Below you will find several home remedies I have stumbled upon during my search:
  • chilled cucumbers: reduces irritations, puffiness, and swelling: Place thin slices on the eyes until no longer chilled. 
  • rosewater: coolest and soothes: Rinse eyes with rosewater several times a day.
  • raw potato: reduced puffiness and other eye irritations: Place thin slices on the eye for no less than 30 minutes.  Rinse eyes thoroughly afterwards.
  • aloe vera: reduces eye irritation: Mix 1/4 tsp. aloe vera juice mixes with 1/2 cup of water.  Use to rinse the eye.
  • humidify: reduces allergens and moistens eyes: Place a cool air humidifier in the room you use most often. 
  • green or black tea: soothes itching and burning: Moisten cotton balls and place over the eyes.
  • check for a deficiency in vitamins A & B12
