9. Castor Oil
The antiviral, antifungal, and antibacterial properties of castor oil provide a variety of health benefits. Castor oil increases lipid production in the eyes and stops the evaporation of tears. In animal studies, it was found that the ricinoleic acid in castor oil reduced swelling of the eyes. Castor oil lubricates your eyes, which may help in alleviating any irritation.
Take a few drops of castor oil and apply it around your eyes. Take a washcloth and soak it in warm water. Place it over your eyelids for about 10 minutes. Repeat this 2 times every day.
