Essential Oil Remedy for Cold Sores

essential oil cold sore remedy

I’m unlucky enough to get cold sores, when I’m stressed or tired, or when I get a cold. They’re sore and itchy, and just not nice! Thankfully, this essential oil blend eases them. I use it as soon as I feel the first ‘tingle’, the sweet almond oil stops keeps it moist, and the essential oils bring some relief.

You’ll Need:
10ml sweet almond oil
6 drops Chamomile German
8 drops Tea Tree
5 drops Lavender

I keep my blend in an old essential oil bottle, I can drop a little onto my finger and rub into the cold sore several times a day.

    I love essential oils.
    I usually use thyme oil when I get a cold and feel a sore throat coming on. I get a bowl of boiling water and drop a few drops of thyme and breathe it in. I do this a few times a day when Im coming down with a cold.
    Have you tryed Bergamot on your cold sore?

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this website.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times
    it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between usability and
    visual appeal. I must say that you’ve done a amazing
    job with this. Additionally, the blog loads very quick for me on Internet explorer.

    Superb Blog!
