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.

I have suffered from cold sores since I was a child. Sometimes I would go several months to a year without a flare up. Other times they just keep recurring. Generally, mine seem to be induced by stress.

On day I started getting a cold sore. The process had begun hours earlier while I was at work. By the time I got home the swelling had started, but no eruption of the skin yet. I had not had time to treat myself yet, and being new to the oils at that time, I didnt know what to use.

I was applying Melrose to my sons feet for dry, cracking feet (the Melrose took this away too) and after 5 to 10 minutes of having the Melrose only on my hands, the cold sore had completely reversed itself! The swelling and pain were both gone and the cold sore did not return that time.

It did recur a couple months later, but as I applied Melrose immediately, I avoided it again.
