Heal a cold sore—stat!

First For Women - - Smart You Solutions -

A pesky cold sore popped up on your lip, and you want to get rid of it as quickly as pos­si­ble. The fix: Mix 1 tsp. of honey with a few drops of pep­per­mint and laven­der oils. Dab the mix­ture on the spot twice daily un­til healed. Laven­der quells the pain and itch­ing, pep­per­mint has an­tivi­ral prop­er­ties to stop the virus from spread­ing and honey has an­timi­cro­bial prop­er­ties to speed heal­ing.
