This lip balm begins with a healing base of grass fed tallow infused with melissa/lemon balm. Studies have shown that lemon balm is extremely effective in treating herpes simplex infections. (Cold sores are a type of herpes simplex infection.) We paired that with tamanu oil. Tamanu oil helps with cell regeneration, reducing inflammation and destroying bacteria. Tamanu and clove essential oil can help with the pain associated with cold sores. Tea tree essential oil is another proven herpes simplex fighter. Finally we added peppermint essential oil for a cooling and analgesic effect, and it helps it smell great too.
This would be great for healing all kinds of lip problems.
On personal note this oil bend has become my go to lip balm. I like that it glides on but it isn’t as slick as our shimmers. It has done well when left in a hot car.
