This might sound odd but my Grandmother always had fresh tahini in the fridge not just for us to eat, in case we got cold sores too! This home remedy is so good for getting rid of cold sores fast, so if you've tried a few options and are reluctant to put any harsh chemicals in your mouth or around it, try tahini!

What You'll Need

  • A small amount of Tahini. You can buy the organic kind from your supermarket and just keep a tub in the fridge for meals and heals!

What You'll Do

  • Rub tahini on cold sore(s)
  • Even a tiny bit of tahini on to the cold sore can help reduce its size and help it heal (well, according to my Grandmother!)

Tips & Warnings

  • Make sure to really wash hands afterwards.
