very quick note today as have been at it all day (working!) ... a note on the benefits of Turmeric:
a simply amazing anti inflammatory when treating inside and out...and yes, i have tested it several times on un removable splinters found on both self and himself....simply blend a teaspoon of the wonder spice with olive oil and lavender oil and apply...wrap in cling film. The pain will leave very quickly and the inflammation will dissipate soon enough to surprise you.....give it a go!...warning...skin will be tinted yellow for a day or so!...its worth it.
continuing my quest for a cure for itchy eyes....I have also been blinking mad!! The theory (I love a good theory) is that as we age we blink far less than when we are younger. Blinking encourages the flow of natural oils from the tiny outlets around the eye rim and among the lashes, so when we blink less our eye are less lubricated. Ive been using my blinking therapy 20 times every morning and night in bed (he hasn't left me yet!) and I really think it contributes to the fact that my eyes are better......give it a try? whats to loose. xxx
New on the eye treatments I have been testing....I read that hot compress helps to relieve dry eyes: theory is that the tiny sebum glands around the eye can become blocked by dry skin in the winter and because of irritation from eye make up or blepheritis (a common eye condition) So...using a hot compress warms the skin and allows the natural oils to flow from the sebum glands, thereby soothing and moisturising the lashes and sensitive eye area naturally. I have been using this method for a couple of weeks and can report that it works brilliantly! Its necessary to use water as hot as you can comfortably bear and initially to repeat three times a day...I've cut down to twice a day now and my eyes are pretty much back to normal.
Hope this is of use to anyone suffering from dry eyes this winter **
