old Sore Salve: Soothing & Reliable amplified with NZ Native 5+ Honey & A Lemon Balm Infusion.
We LOVE this cold sore soothing salve because the consistency is ‘just right’ for application on broken and inflamed skin. The smell is soothing in its self and really showcases the natural herb in the salves green colour. No synthetic colourants used!
Lemon balm is very effective in reducing the duration and frequency of the herpes simplex virus!
Traditionally lemon balm was used to soothe nervous tension and relieve anxiety (both of which you may get with a cold sore).
This salve is completely safe for children to use – all natural and with a safe essential oil concentration for the lips of 0.5%
Top Tip: Even if you don’t get the virus it works great as a gloss to go over your lippy – for that shiny look!
Directions: Remove a very small amount from the tin and apply to lips as needed.
Use daily as a preventative or during to lessen duration and severity of the cold sore.
