The Number One Eye Remedy

Eye RemedyAccording to ayurveda, the mind and vision are intertwined. As Pratima Raichur writes in Ayurvedic Beauty Care, “When the mind is tired or strained, nothing can rest the eyes; and when the mind is at rest, nothing can tire the eyes.” Meditation and relaxation exercises are the 1 remedies for eye irritation.

Here are some other ways to relieve common eye problems and put the sparkle back into your eyes.


One of ayurveda’s most effective remedies for eyestrain and for burning eyes is massaging the scalp and feet nightly with one teaspoon of castor oil. The oil pulls heat from the eyes and promotes a sound sleep.


While sitting comfortably, rub the palms of your hands together rapidly for 10 seconds. (If your eyes are hot or it’s summertime, omit this step and instead place thin, wet, cold cotton pads on the palms.) Palming relieves eyestrain and bloodshot eyes.
