Black eyes

Dilute 1 drop of geranium and 1 drop of chamomile roman in 2 teaspoons (10 mL) of witch hazel and blend well together. Now add this to 1 tablespoon (15 mL) of ice-cold water, mix well, and strain through a paper coffee filter or clean muslin cloth.

Then soak some cotton-wool pads in the mixture, and keep them in the fridge. As needed, gently squeeze out the excess liquid, close your eye, and apply a pad to the eyelid and surrounding area. You could blend witch hazel with a chamomile roman or geranium hydrolat and use in the same way.
