Styes

by Lindsey Costa

June 2010

My husband gets eye styes often when he is stressed out. I take a tea bag if
black tea that I have soaked a few seconds and have him lay down with it on
his eye for about 10 minutes. By morning the stye is almost gone!

Did You Know?

Cayenne powder has been used by researchers in Antarctica to help them bear the extremely cold temperatures. The cayenne powder is sprinkled into their boots before putting them on. As the powder slowly comes in contact with the skin through the socks, it will draw blood to the feet, thus bringing much needed warms to the extremities. The one draw back is the red powder stains light colored socks. From our readings, it seems the stained socks were a small price to pay for the great benefit of being able to feel your toes after a little while out in the blistering cold! After trying this on a number of occasions during the winter near Lake Superior, I'm also convinced the stained socks are worth it.
