Lemon Balm is one of the best known natural herbal healing remedies for herpes, and herpes cold sores. Lemon Balm can also be used on other viral skin conditions as well.
Lemon Balm contains eugenol, which kills bacteria and has been shown to calm muscles and numb tissues. It also contains tannins that contribute to its antiviral effects, as well as terpenes that add to its soothing effects.
In scientific studies, lemon balmâ€™s herbal properties has been shown to combat and heal cold sores due to the herpes virus. Applied to the affected area, lemon balm helps heal cold the sores in about 2-4 days. It also helps double the time between outbreaks.
Lemon balm is also very useful on chicken pox and shingles. As both chicken pox and shingles are of the same virus family as herpes, it can be used for naturally healing the sores. Lemon Balm used topically, on the sores of chicken pox and shingles will help them heal much quicker than on their own.
Our Natural Lemon Balm ointmentÂ contains a base of almond and apricot oil and organic lemon balm herb. This allows the oil to absorb all the herbal medicinal properties of the lemon balm. We then add beeswax and scent it with 100% pure organic lemon essential oil as a preservative.
Lemon balm should be avoided by those on thyroid medication as it is believed that the herb inhibits the absorption of this medicine. Check out our Lemon Balm Free formula if you can’t use lemon balm.
