Cold Sore Update. Cuz You Know You Can't Drive By Without Looking At The Train Wreck On My Face

I know you are all dying to know how my train wreck of a face is doing.  It's been first and foremost on your minds.........  

Cold sores.  They are a nightmare.  Your lip not only hurts like someone threw a snowball at you and it was full of shards of glass, add insult to injury, it's ugly, unsightly, and your lip has blown up so big it walks in the room five minutes before the rest of your face!

Those who suffer from cold sores across the world, we are desperate for relief from the dreaded NOOOOOO when you first feel the tingling on your lip.  We scour pharmacy department shelves for any product that hints or suggests it might help with a cold sore.  We pay out the nose for products because we are desperate!

Guess what?  I've found something.  Those of you that know me tease me about my essential oils.  Yup.  I found some that help.   Just putting it out there to all of the other desperate, "Please don't let this be the day I wake up with a Godzilla lip" peoples out there.

1 drop Melissa
1 drop Malaleuca
1 drop DigestZen

Apply every hour for the first day.

Why?  Because my lip looks and feels normal after one day of this treatment.

The End.


  1. Hallelujah! If you invented that, then you better get the patent so you can retire early!
    Desperate lips the world over will pay you to be normal once again!

    1. I didn't invent it but I'm glad someone else suggested it! :)

  2. Awesome! Glad to hear you are on the mend in the cold sore department. I just may have to look in to some of the oils. Hearing you talk about them, they sound pretty amazing...

    1. They are amazing. They are the reason I am doing so well health wise. A complete turn around for me after 6 years of looking for something!
