What is herpes?

Herpes virus causes cold sores (painful blisters) around the lips, which usually take about ten days to heal themselves. Once a crust has formed healing has begun. Cold sores are due to an outbreak of herpes simplex virus that can lay dormant for a long period of time, and tend to mark a period when stress levels are high.

The blisters may appear when we have another infection, for example, a cold (hence the name 'cold sores') or when we are overtired and run down. In some people the blisters arise in extremely hot or extremely cold weather.

Essential oils for herpes

Bergamot, Eucalyptus and Tea-tree oils are very effective in treating the herpes blisters, particularly if applied very quickly at the first sign of an eruption. They are most effective if applied in a pure alcohol base (vodka or rum will be ok). Add a total of 6 drops of essential oil to each 5 ml of alcohol. This could be 6 drops of one oil, but a blend of two or more is often better.

Frequent dabbing with this mixture at the first onset of trouble will often stop blisters developing, but if they don, use neat Lavender oil in alternation with the alcohol mixture, as this helps to heal the blisters in much the same way as it does with burns.

For genital herpes, the same oils can be used, with an emphasis on Bergamot, because this essential oil works well with the urino-genital system. Clearly, oils must be used in a very low dilution. Make an alcohol dilution as above, with 4 drops Bergamot and 2 of Tea-tree, and add to a liter of boiled and cooled water for local washing. Mix very thoroughly just before using.

Both forms of herpes seem to erupt when the sufferer is under stress, and Bergamot is one of the most important de-stressing essential oils. It is good to use in the mix, but also to do inhalations if your stress level is high.
