Cold Sores be gone

Easy Home Treatment for Common Cold Sores

Cold sores are caused by the virus herpes simplex, another strain of which produces genital herpes. They may be the same virus, but they behave differently.

The cold sore virus may lie dormant in the tissues indefinitely until conditions trigger off an attack. Most people have acquired this virus at an early age from another person.

 What triggers  this virus to multiply and erupt?

What happens?

  1. you feel a tingling sensation on the lips
  2. blisters come out on the lips
  3. cracks and sores in the corner of the mouth
  4. these remain moist and weep then form a crust for up to 10days before drying out

CAUTION – Highly contagious during this moist, weeping stage.

Aromatherapy oils from which to choose:

  • bergamot
  • eucalyptus
  • rose geranium is my preferred oil
  • lavender
  • lemon
  • tea tree

Apply neat on the skin using a clean cotton bud each application.

TIP : You can also apply freshly squeezed lemon juice at the first sign of the sore.
