A thank you to Leslie North for this brief description of her "kitchen use" of EFT.

Try it on everything!

I was preparing dinner and chopping onions. Usually my eyes will begin to sting and get very bad until I have to squeeze them shut and tears start. This time, however, I tried tapping as soon as I felt the stinging sensation start. I did no EFT Set-up phrases. I just started with the eyebrow point.

There was not much change until I reached the collarbone and underarm point. The underarm point seemed particularly effective in quieting the stinging. It took 5 minutes or so to chop the whole onion and I had to tap about 3 times during the process but it was wonderful to avoid the tears.
