MELISSA AND PROPOLIS - Organic Cold Sore/Herpes salve with Prunella & Hypericum
  • Melissa & Propolis Organic Herpes Simplex/Cold Sore Salve with Self-heal and St John's Wort 

     

     Organically cultivated Melissa officinalis, wild harvested Prunella vulgaris and Hypericum perforatum and organic propolis, infused in organic olive oil and blended with organic beeswax.

     

    Lemon balm, Melissa officinalis, helps stop herpes simplex virus causing a sore. It can be used on the face, genitals, or wherever needed. It can be used daily or when an outbreak starts, to help prevent it from developing.

     

    In a double-blind study, a specially prepared dried extract from Melissa leaves was investigated and the antiviral activity in vitro of this plant against herpes simplex infections was confirmed. The treatment with this plant was shown to be effective at very early stages of the infection. A double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized trial was carried out with the aim of proving efficacy of standardized lemon balm cream for the therapy of herpes simplex labialis. The tested formulation was effective for the treatment of this disease. In addition to the shortening of the healing period, lemon balm cream was beneficial in preventing spreading of the infection and contribute to the rapid effect on typical symptoms of herpes like itching, tingling, burning, stabbing, swelling, tautness, and erythema. The different mechanism of action of the lemon balm extract rules out the development of resistance of the herpes virus.

      Prunella vulgaris may help fight herpes simplex virus 1 (or HSV-1, the virus that causes cold sores) and herpes simplex virus 2 (or HSV-2, the virus that causes genital herpes), according to a 2011 study. In tests on cells in culture, researchers demonstrated that certain carbohydrates found in prunella vulgaris may help stop HSV-1 and HSV-2 from penetrating host cells.

       

      Propolis is a mixture of compounds harvested by bees from the resin of various trees. Topical application of 3% propolis ointment was significantly more effective than acyclovir or placebo at resolving lesions of genital herpes.

       

       St. John's wort is a traditional treatment for herpes and other viral infections and its wound healing activity makes this herb particularly suitable for topical use. Formulas that include lemon balm and St. John's wort are often used internally and topically in clinical practice
