The Breakdown: Antiviral Balm

Cold sores are uncomfortable, unsightly, and sometimes pop up as a painful reminder that our stress levels are hitting the red zone. (We hope you caught all the references.)

We formulated this buttery recipe using lysine-rich avocado oil infused with skin-regenerating CBD (anti-inflammatory). Lysine is an amino acid found in avocado (and other foods) which helps to prevent and treat cold sores. CBD, when used topically, helps skin heal faster. As cold sores are caused by a virus, we incorporated lemon balm and St. John’s Wort for their anti-viral properties. Calendula is added to help with inflammation and vitamin E will soothe and nourish. Peppermint cools down the affected area and eases any discomfort.

We never use synthetic ingredients in our products. No additives to enhance scent, flavor, or appearance. Our binding agent is beeswax when necessary so when 'imperfections' -- cracks, shrinkage -- appear, that's beeswax doin' its thing.

No artificial scents or flavors here so slather it on as generously and as often as needed.
