• Can essential oils be used to treat glaucoma?


    Question:

    I am a registered nurse and aromatherapist. A client has asked me if there are essential oils used to treat glaucoma (hers is chronic narrow-angle). I wanted to tell her that essential oils can’t treat this type of underlying disease—isn’t that correct?


    Answer:

    I don’t know of any data supporting the use of essential oils to treat glaucoma. Please urge your client to see an ophthalmologist to treat their glaucoma.
