A stye is an incredibly painful abscess on the eyelid. It may cause your eye to be swollen, inflamed and watery. Some people are more prone to these bothersome infections than others with frequent outbreaks. It is usually caused by a staph bacteria. It is also possible to have an internal stye inside the eyelid. Most of them will get better without treatment within a few days, but can be very disruptive to your life with the pain and irritation and can be very unsightly.
Warm compresses held against the eye encourage the stye to empty and heal more quickly.
Following is a testimony of one of my Young Living members and her use of essential oils to help heal her stye.
