7. Witch Hazel
Witch hazel is regarded as a good healing agent for many problems including black eyes. The following are a couple of ways to use this home remedy.
- Soak a cotton pad in witch hazel and place it on the affected eye for a few minutes. This will have a gentle soothing as well as healing effect.
- You can also prepare a solution of chamomile essential oil, witch hazel and water. Dip a clean cloth in the solution and place it on your eyelid and surrounding area. Repeat the process 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.
