Arnica is an herb that can reduce the swelling that often occurs with a black eye. It will also help heal the eye muscles and any other tissue that may have been damaged. Begin using arnica as soon as possible to prevent the bruise from getting worse. Arnica is available in topical creams or ointments, as well as in oil form, that can be applied on the affected area two to three times a day.
8. Natural Oil
Massaging the affected area with a good natural oil can help relieve swelling and inflammation. Olive oil is the best option as it contains many bruise healing properties. You can use other types of oil also, like coconut or castor oil. When massaging with oil, be as gentle as possible as extra pressure can cause more pain.
