Note: 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. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable.
I’ve never had a fever blister until this year, and I battled it for 6 weeks. I tried using a variety of oils, including Oregano, but none of them helped me like other people have reported.
Then, when seeking God for my solution, I was reminded that oranges cured scurvy long ago. For those who may not know, this was a disease caused by a deficiency of vitamin C, characterized by swollen bleeding gums, which particularly affected poorly nourished sailors until the end of the 18th century.
With this divine inspiration, I grabbed the closest thing I had to oranges, Tangerine oil, and applied it many times a day with a citrus lip balm on top. It tingled, but the issue was healed over night. Now I put a dab on each day to ensure it doesn’t come back.
Good luck finding your solution. I am thankful to find one that worked for me!

|Supporting Scientific Studies|
|1.||Associated topics: viruses,herpes,cold-sores — "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|
|2.||Associated topics: viruses — "Taken together, we found an essential oil blend [Orange, Clove, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary] notably attenuates influenza virus PR8 infection in vitro via inhibition of viral protein synthesis at the post-transcription level. The lack of toxicity and potent specific inhibition ability make the essential oil a possible antiviral drug for influenza virus proliferation control and treatment."||Link|
|3.||Associated topics: herpes — "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|
|4.||Associated topics: viruses — "Tea tree oil (TTO) (Melaleuca alternifolia) has been used recently as an effective topical application for the treatment of skin infections due to a variety of aetiological microbial agents, including mainly bacterial infections. We detail... the successful treatment with TTO of a paediatric patient with warts on her right middle finger. TTO was applied topically once daily to the lesions for 12 days, with a successful outcome, including complete re-epithelization of the infected areas. The case highlights the potential use of TTO in the treatment of common warts due to human papilloma virus."||Link|
|5.||Associated topics: viruses,herpes — "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|
