FOR HERPES OUTBREAKS - CHICKEN POX, SHINGLES, ALOPECIA AREATA DUE TO HERPES VIRUS, COLD SORES, GENITAL HERPES*
Contains: Fractionated coconut oil, Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis), Calendula flower (Calendula officinalis), Green tea (Camellia sinensis), Green rooibos herb (Aspalathus linearis), St. John's wort (Hypericum perforatum), essential oils of ginger and basil. Tocopherol acetate (vitamin E) and citrus seed extract added to preserve.
HOW IT WORKS! Coconut oil is a rich source of lauric acid, which has been demonstrated to kill all lipid-coated bacteria and viruses. This includes all of the herpes viruses. When lauric acid and the membranes meet up, the lauric acid essentially dissolves the membrane, leaving the contents defenseless - they spill out and die. Added to this is Lemon balm, which is also known and demonstrated to kill the herpes viruses, as do Calendula flowers; the Calendula also helps speed healing. Rooibos also contains herpes-fighting constituents and is very soothing to the skin. Green tea contains constituents that are powerful mast cell membrane strengtheners, helping to reduce the release of histamine and - with its high polyphenol/antioxidant content - helps reduce inflammation. Each of the essential oils are included for their antiviral properties, as well as for their pleasant tastes and smell; there are no "shirkers" in this formula! We recently added ST. JOHN'S WORT for its protection of the nerves and its antiviral properties.
SUGGESTED USE: Apply as needed to lesions and to areas prone to breakout for prevention.
