the eyes and forehead. This is often due to uncorrected visual problems, but other causes

Calming and soothing Essential Oils, as well as those that support the eyes, can be beneficial for head tension caused by eyestrain:
CLARY SAGE is an Essential Oil well known for soothing tired or irritated eyes. In the Middle Ages it was known as “Oculus Christi” (“Eye of Christ”) as well as “Eye Bright” and “Clear Eye” due to its use for clearing mucus from the eyes. “Clary” comes from the Latin “clarus” (“clear”).
