In brief: Inside or out

Using moisturizing drops to rinse away irritants would be helpful.
Aloe vera gel applied carefully on the eyelids would help eyelid itching (don't get let it get in the eye). Herbal supplement with stinging nettles and cinnamon have been helpful for control of itching from allergies.

In brief: Yes

Sometimes itchy eyes can be relieved by something as simple as a cool water compress.
If they're itchy from allergy and are a bit puffy and red, use a cool compress made from a used tea bag. The tannic acid in tea bags is anti-inflamatory and astringent. I've also had great success using eye drops called optique, made by boiron. These are homeopathic and fda approved.

In brief: Natural remedy

Although there are many natural remedies, many of which are discussed in German monographs, none are FDA approved here in the USA.
Thus, you are using them at your own risk, and none are proven by lab science to help specific eye ailments. Ask your local ophthalmologist if you have a specific question.
