From Essential Oils Desk Reference:Are you interested in trying Young Living "therapeutic" Essential Oils? Place your order at this link!
Antiviral essential oils have generally been very effective in treating herpes lesions and reducing their onset. Oils such as tea tree, melissa, and rosemary [watch rosemary; it can heighten blood pressure] have been successfully used for this purpose by Daniel Penoel, M.D. in his clinical practice. A study at the University of Buenos Aires found that sandalwood essential oil inhibited the replication of Herpes Simplex viruses -1 and -2.
Those with herpes should avoid diets high in the amino acid L-arginine, substituting instead L-lysine. Lysine retards the growth of the virus. Foods such as amaranth and plain yogurt are good sources of lysine. Please see this link on Lysine.
