Written by certified aromatherapist Jennifer Lane, founder of Loving Essential Oils, the new report aims to explore a range of oil types that can potentially serve as treatments for cold sores. Under Lane’s direction, the site continues to release guides on the topics of suitable essential oil recipes for various needs – whether for relaxation, soothing skin conditions, or creating pleasant aromas.

The new report describes a selection of essential oils as natural healers of cold sores, including lemon balm, tea tree, peppermint, and other varieties. When cold sore sufferers try such oils, Loving Essential Oils says that they might experience better results than with over-the-counter pharmaceuticals.
Jennifer Lane suggests that the antiviral properties of several essential oil mixes make them particularly conducive to the relief of cold sores and related symptoms, such as itchiness. In her report, she says that these oils are known to accelerate the healing process and stop cold sores from wreaking further havoc on lips by spreading.
The report is structured around eight unique essential oils, with each type accompanied by a brief overview of its properties and, in some cases, their correct application methods. As one example, Loving Essential Oils states that lavender oil is associated with cold sore and pain relief as well as a relaxing scent.
In order to produce optimal results, the Loving Essential Oils report further recommends diluting essential oils with carriers like aloe vera gel or unrefined virgin coconut oil. These contain their own anti-inflammatory properties, and serve to counter the discomfort that would potentially come with the direct usage of essential oils on cold sores.
Jennifer Lane expands on this point in her report, saying: “When using essential oils as a natural remedy for cold sores, it’s important to keep in mind that essential oils are extremely concentrated plant extracts. Without proper dilution, you risk stinging or burning at the site of application. That is why it is best to dilute essential oils with a carrier oil such as coconut oil or jojoba oil.”
Additional reports released by Loving Essential Oils include titles ranging from “Essential Oil Substitution Chart For Blends & Recipes” to “Spearmint vs Peppermint Essential Oil – What’s the Difference?”
