This really is the best natural remedy I have found for cold sores. I find that it works especially well as a preventative measure when you feel that cold sore tingle....

What You'll Need

  • 100% pure Vanilla Extract - you can buy in most food stores
  • Cotton Swabs

What You'll Do

  • Soak cotton in vanilla until thoroughly saturated.
  • Apply directly to sore, holding the swab in place for a minute or so. Repeat four times daily
  • Soak the cotton pad or swab in the vanilla extract until it is thoroughly saturated.
  • Using a cotton swab, liberally apply the vanilla to your lips. You can hold the swab or pad in place for a minute or so. Do this four times daily until no longer needed.

Tips & Warnings

  • Make sure you do not use artificial vanilla as this will have no effect at all on the cold sore.
