    Well, pink eyes make many people feel annoying and painful. And in common, pink eye is caused by inflammation of blood vessels. It is often termed as conjunctivitis, for the infection affects the eyes through allergens, bacteria or viruses. And of course, lavender oil is a cosmetic product contains purcelin oil and is effective for inflammation. Also, some ice and cool teabags can be effective too. Besides, some prescription eye drops should be taken too. Anyway, just be careful about it.
