Melissa Lemon Balm OintmentÂ (Melissa officinalis) is one of the top choices for natural herbal healing of herpes virus and herpes cold sores. InÂ German scientific studies, Melissa officinalis (lemon balm) has been shown to contain the active herbal properties of tannins. It is the tannins in the herb that contain certain polyphenols. In addition to using the lemon balm herb, we also add 100% natural lemon essential oil as a natural preservative. We recommend avoiding products containing artificial preservatives.
Melissa also contains the healing power of terpenes. These active herbal ingredient are what gives Melissa Ointment itâ€™s antiviral, anti-septic, and anti-fungal healing properties. In particular, the polyphenols and terpenes help to combat and heal cold sores due to the herpes simples virus.
When applied to the affected area, Melissa Ointment helps heal the cold sores in about 2-4 days. The ointment also helps to double the time between outbreaks.
Apply a small amount of cream to affected area 3-4 x a day during out breaks. Be sure to cover entire sore. Dab on, and rub in gently so the sores do not break open.
Ointment should be used 1-2 x a day during non break outs to keep the herpes virus at bay.
