Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

My husband works as a project foreman for a construction company and spends a lot of time in the elements (i.e., sun, wind, cold, and more). He tends to get fever blisters (a.k.a. cold sores) when he is stressed or just plain worn down.

One day he came home from work saying his lips were burning and painful. I had just purchased a Lavender Lip Balm, so I handed it to him, hoping that he would use it.

Well, he did use it and had wonderful results. So he decided that he would take it with him to work and use it there too.

A couple weeks ago my husband felt a fever blister coming on at work. So he grabbed the Lavender Lip Balm, and it actually worked! He did not have any pain or blister break out at all.

Now every time my husband feels a fever blister coming on, he reaches for the Lavender Lip Balm and has the same kind of results each time.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1."Essential oils from anise, hyssop, thyme, ginger, camomile and sandalwood were screened for their inhibitory effect against herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) [genital herpes]. A clearly dose-dependent virucidal activity against HSV-2 could be demonstrated for all essential oils tested. Chamomile oil exhibited a high selectivity index and seems to be a promising candidate for topical therapeutic application as virucidal agents for treatment of herpes genitalis."Link
2."The patient was successfully treated with topical peppermint oil [for postherpetic neuralgia, a complication of shingles].... The authors believe this is the first evidence of peppermint oil (or menthol) having a strong analgesic effect on neuropathic pain."Link
3."The presence of beta-caryophyllene in many essential oils might contribute strongly to their antiviral ability. These results indicate that phenylpropanoids and sesquiterpenes present in essential oils contribute to their antiviral activity against HSV [herpes simplex virus]."Link
