RESCUE ME - Fast healing salve for cold sores and cuts

(3 customer reviews)

I don’t like to talk about it but here I am, talking about cold sores! Okay, let’s admit it, it is herpes. Whether it is upstairs or downstairs, it is pretty much the same thing. Herpes is a virus and antiviral medication does helps. So does a blend of essential oils administered topically. Essential Oils are strong things, some people are sensitive to them. They work synergistically (BETTER TOGETHER LIKE MANY THINGS!) to murder all kinds of things we want dead like viruses, bacterias and funguses. Use them wisely and you will reap the rewards, use them too often, in too strong a dose or too much and your body can rebel. Don’t use essential oils on animals, we simply don’t know how much their much littler bodies (and livers) can stand. All that said, you want a miracle in a jar for cold sores, herpes outbreaks, cuts, scraps, bug bites (or even warts and funguses) try this little magic salve. It will keep things clean and let your skin heal.

Heals and Stops Pain

Fast healing salve for cold sores and cuts among many other boo boos. Relieves Pain and heals skin quickly.  I always carry this because it’s so versatile. Put it on any small cut and it will stop or lessen pain greatly.  For help mend and sooth scratches, scrapes, skin eruptions, acne, rashes, cold sores, slivers, bug bites, stings, fever blisters, butt pain, piles (hemorrhoids), herpes outbreaks, burns, hangnails and other skin problems.

Great all-around Salve

Take with you everywhere – shopping, at work, camping, travelling, hiking, as an all purpose fast healing salve for cold sores and cuts or other abrasions. I was amazed that my cuts and scrapes don’t hurt nearly as long or as much and heal more quickly when I use my Rescue Me. It seems to protect small everyday wounds and lubricates rashes too!

Active Ingredients

It works by protecting the outer layer from bacteria growth and keeping viruses and funguses unhappy. (Although it’s important to not rely on any essential oil product to protect you from dangerous viral or bacterial infections).

Neem Oil, karanja oil and the essential oils I have included are all well studied as inhibitors of fungal and bacterial growth. There are several remarkable studies showing how these oils can cure nail fungus (onychomycosis). It is the basis of two other antifungal products I make, a No Fungus Nail Serum and my Fungus Fighter Salve.   This study showed great results with Vit E and essential oils of lime, oregano, and tea tree. Treatment of HSV-1 with oregano essential oil has been shown to disrupt the viral envelope, in fact, this study suggests there are many essential oils that do this.

I Carry Rescue Me Salve Wherever I Go.

It has proven so useful and helpful that I always have a tin in my purse.  I:

  • Use this on every cut, scratch and sliver I get.
  • Rub some on my hands when I am trying to keep germs away.
  • Put a little under my nose when on the airplane hoping to prevent colds.
  • If I feel that itch of a cold-sore coming on, I use it and haven’t gotten any in a long time.
  • When I feel the beginning of a pimple.

I am told it works great for eczema itching as well.
