Cooling Cucumber Eye Compress
Cucumber is helpful for soothing irritated, red, swollen eyes. To prepare, dice a cucumber and place the chunks in a food processor with a tablespoon of mineral water. Turn on the processor just long enough to mash the cucumber into a water paste. Spoon the mixture into cheesecloth or gauze squares, wrapping each square into individual eye-pads. Stack the eye-pads in a sealed plastic container and refrigerate to have on hand for a soothing, relaxing eye treat.
