If you get a black eye, no matter what the reason, you have to live with it until it fades away which is usually about a week to 10 days. The eye itself is not really affected, but the fatty tissue and lack of muscle around the eye socket is a good spot for blood to accumulate after a blow to the eye area. When the blood is reabsorbed, different colors are released causing the extreme appearance of a black eye.

Aromatherapy essential oils can soothe and treat your black eye. All you need to do is add 1 drop of geranium and 1 drop of chamomile essential oils in 2 teaspoons of witch hazel and mix well. Then add this mixture to 1 tablespoon of ice cold water, shake well and soak a cotton ball or cotton facial pad in it. Close your eye and apply the cotton pad to the eyelid and surrounding area. Do this once a day during the length of your black eye or until it looks and feels better.
