- 15 drops Tea Tree oil
- ¼ cup baby shampoo
- 1 cup boiled water
Boil water and let cool to room temperature. Mix all together in a bowl. I use paper towel cut to size. And fold or stack towels in an old wet wipe container. Poor mix evenly over the towels till moist. Store in a cool place, preferably in a dark container.
Use daily for eyelid wipes.
- Eyelid Scrubs with Q-tips (cotton swabs). It is highly recommended that ocular rosacea sufferers apply eyelid scrub solution onto a Q-tip and gently cleanse their upper and lower eyelids.Q-tips are recommended because they aid in removing crust and debris from the eyelid. The eyelid skin is very delicate, so close the eyes and use gentle side-to-side strokes across the eyelid margins and lashes, being careful not to rub harshly or irritate the skin.
- Patients should cleanse each eye for 30 to 60 seconds.
- Lather from the eyelid scrub should then be rinsed off or removed gently with a tissue.
This method is also effective for removing eye make-up and mascara.
Tea Tree Oil has been used as an antiseptic, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and as an analgesic for sore muscles. It is still one of the most popular essential oils today. As well as its many medicinal benefits.
Cleaning agent: “no more tears” baby shampoo that is safe to use on a newborn baby.
Remember, you should always do what is recommended by your eye care professional. There are many options for eyelid scrubs but your doctor will recommend the method that fits your condition and needs the best.
