Rebecca talks: This potent but ever-so-pleasant lip balm starts withextra-virgin, organic coconut oil. 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. 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!

Wondrous Lips - Cold Sore Prevention & Treatment
Swan, John OH!!! A testimonial for your friend who does the "lip balm."
I got a cold sore on Monday around 1
I got the lip balm on it within 15 min
it should have been huge because the surface area was pretty
large, but it was contained and I am in the process of healing right
now. Just a few small scabs
3 days later
even with Abreva, it would take 7-10 days
thank her for me and let her know I have been spreading the word
do you know of any stores she has it in yet?
