11 Remedies for an Eye Stye

9. Castor Oil

Castor oil has long been recognized for its skin soothing and healing properties. Castor oil contains certain acids which have powerful anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Using castor oil will help to reduce the swelling and combat the infection, speeding the healing of the stye. In addition, castor oil is rich in essential oils that help soothe and nourish the skin. Gently warm some castor oil, then dip a cotton ball into it and hold on the affected eye for a few minutes. Use a little non-soap cleaning lotion to wash off in warm, clean water. Repeat three or four times a day until the stye is healed.
