Melissa Officianalis oil is not a traditional ingredient in Chinese herbal medicine, but it has been used in a variety of applications in medical science. M. officinalis extract has been reported to inhibit protein synthesis and to exhibit antiviral activity against HSV-1, the cold sore virus.
*Allahverdiyev et al. showed the antiviral effect of volatile oils of M. officinalis against HSV-1 and HSV-2 viruses. They showed that various specific concentrations showed toxic effects on HEp-2 cells and exhibited antiviral activity against HSV-2. Their in vivo findings indicate that M. officinalis L. extract inhibit the HSV-2 replication at nontoxic doses.
Body Dragon balm is a result of observing the use of Melissa officianalis in various extracted forms and dosages over 15yrs of clinical practice, while also keeping up with the exciting and positive research from the medical community. Not just in the multiple research articles, but in many anecdotal accounts, we have seen over and over that use of Melissa oil can eventually prevent future cold sore break outs. The total number of cold sores that need to be treated before ‘remission’ seems to range from 2-6 cold sores. One jar of Body Dragon Balm could be your last.
Over the years of testing balms here and there, gathering together the best actives in the Chinese herbal materia medica and a few other potent ingredients, this balm was evolved.
Chinese herbs including Chuan Lian Zi, Qing Hao, Jin Yin Hua and Gan Cao have all also demonstrated anti-viral activity and are extremely helpful with reducing severity and duration of cold sores and shingles lesions. Putting them all together is the next level. Body Dragon Balm contains the best of the best so you can finally say NO MORE COLD SORE!
