I suffer from terrible allergies. I purchased emu oil for my hair but decided to try it one day on my itchy eyes. It stops the itching immediately. I am so happy that I have this versatile oil. Sure, my eyes go blurry for a few seconds, but it's worth it for the immediate and lasting relief it brings.
Emu Oil for Dry Irritated Eyes
I was amazed by the remedy that one of our customers who called today told me of. He purchases emu oil capsules for arthritic joint pain and says he can't live without them. After chatting with him for a little while he told me that he uses the capsules to administer a drop of pharmaceutical grade emu oil into his eyes at night as he suffers from terribly dry and irritated eyes. He said that he does it just before he goes to sleep as initially his eyes go blurry, but that the emu oil does not sting and that it is extremely soothing and comforting. When he wakes in the morning, his eyes feel bright, wide open and relaxed. He says it is amazing. He works nights as a security guard and his eyes suffer from eye strain as well as sleep deprivation as you can imagine. As emu oil is anti-inflammatory and extremely hypoallergenic, I imagine that it could be really-really great. I haven't tried it myself yet. I plan to tonight though (my eyes are itchy and dry after a whole day in front of the computer) - so I will keep you posted.
