To use the substance properly, it is recommended that you clean and dry the areas in which you are showing sores and make a paste out of the powder and apply it to the infected areas that you have. Leave the paste on the infected areas for up to 24 hours.
– Samento extract. This substance is available in both pill and liquid form. It is extracted from a plant found in many rain forests around the world and is thought to be a major immune system booster. Most herpes outbreaks happen when the immune system is at a low point and the virus is able to cause an outbreak. In the native Peru where it was found originally, the locals drink it as a tea that is thought to help boost overall health and vitality.
– Tea Tree Oil. This substance has been hailed as a veritable cure-all when it comes to any ailment that involves open sores. Most tea tree oil is concentrated and distilled for maximum potency, so only a small amount is needed for the effects to take place. It is commonly used to treat canker sores, sore throats (take a small glass of water and add a few drops of the oil in it and then gargle) and with healing herpes sores outbreaks. Simply use the eye-dropper that comes with the bottle and use a single drop of the oil on the infected area.
– Finally, a combination of healing essential oils used directly on the sores is thought to help speed healing during herpes outbreaks. Things like peppermint oil in combination with lavender combined with a small bit of olive oil can be applied directly to the sores.
