Essential Oils for Herpes, Canker Sore Remedy, Minor Burns – TRINITY™

This blend is a synergistic first aid POWERHOUSE! It soothes and knocks out infections! I’ve gotten to love the aroma and taste of the ingredients: lavender, frankincense and clove.

Super Blend of Essential Oils for Herpes / Canker Sores / Cold Sores

My husband, Bill, had been a “type one” Herpes sufferer his whole life. Every time there was a stressful business situation, a pressured financial situation or difficulty in traveling…. he would feel the tingling on his lip and begin to feel the headache and malaise that comes with some herpes outbreaks. It was disabling in many circumstances. It was like living in a prison.

Bill had tried many things, none of which worked perfectly. But when I created Trinity, he had a better tool for fighting off the herpes lesions that would normally hang on for a week or ten days. This would happen every month or two!

But when using Trinity topically on his lip (and neck and jaw), he was able to turn back the progress of the viral outbreak before it really got going. Taken early enough, the lesions would mostly dry up overnight. Two or three days in more advanced cases.

Bill has found the holy grail of fighting these outbreaks is to take mega doses (4000 mg) of Lysine two or three times a day starting immediately upon feeling symptoms. If the lesion has broken out already, he applies Trinity to dry it up quickly and disable the virus at that location. That’s his formula.

Incidentally, for those of you who suffer with herpes lesions on your lips…. don’t eat lots of chocolate, nuts or drink a lot of coffee because these elements (and some others like legumes) will hike your Arginine level and correspondingly lower your Lysine blood level. If you overdo it…this will bring on a Herpes outbreak, sure as shootin’! But if Herpes gets a foothold, go ahead and try the aforementioned solution.

If you would prefer a natural and convenient solution for your canker sores / herpes outbreaks, try our custom-formulated Herpes blend: Trinity™. Dry up those lesions quickly!

This Essential Oils Blend is Great for Burns, too!

On our February 2009 Aromatherapy Study Retreat at Shambhala Ranch in Mendocino county (CA), I accidentally burned my finger during my meal prep shift.

Followed standard first aid protocol: Cooling the skin immediately with an item from the freezer, but could tell the burned area was going to sting and be sensitive for a few days anyway. Thank GOODNESS for Susan Betancourt’s astute suggestion to use a drop of TRINITY™ an awesome ‘proprietary’ blend I had created and given her as a gift.

ONE drop – Did the job! The sensitivity & discomfort were gone immediately…as if I hadn’t been burned at all. WOW! were Susan and I amazed…and impressed at this easy DIY Rx for minor burns.

Susan had another interesting idea – to use ‘just a touch’ of TRINITY™ on

the tongue, next time either of us get burned by drinking or eating food that’s too hot. Bet that would work wonderfully! The idea hadn’t even occurred to me to use essential oils that way…and I burn my tongue often enough on food that’s too hot to eat. (I and others have used TRINITY™ for burned lips & tongues since writing this post and it does work superbly. German Chamomile is excellent, too.)

TRINITY™ was researched and formulated as a supportive blend for skin cancer, but hasn’t been used by anyone dealing with that issue to date. We’ve discovered it soothes & helps clear herpes outbreaks quickly, plus it’s excellent for acne, burns, cuts, scratches & other minor skin wounds.

COMMENT: The small 3ml bottle goes a long way. Susan keeps it with her, using some nearly every day, and it lasts her about 4 months.

  1. Oral Herpes simplex flare-ups – Can be soothed quickly with TRINITY!

    A friend of mine gave her sister-in-law, Bev, some Trinity to use on-and-in her mouth for an outrageous Herpes flare-up. Bev noticed IMMEDIATE relief! By the next morning, the swelling of her lips and mouth had subsided, the tissue tenderness was greatly reduced….and Bev was convinced that therapeutic essential oils are a wonderful personal first-aid tool!

  2. I’ve carried Cynthe’s special TRINITY blend in my pocket every day the last 5 months ready to apply to canker sores, mouth and lip wounds, troublesome pimples, skin scratches, etc. This blend is a synergistic first aid POWERHOUSE! It soothes and knocks out infections! I’ve gotten to love the aroma and taste of the ingredients: lavender, frankincense and clove.

    Awhile back I happened to mention to Cynthe that for years I’ve been plagued with canker sores. They would develop in my mouth or on my lips at times of stress or if my teeth happened to nip the inside of my cheek while chewing or when sharp food bruised my mouth. Festering, this kind of wound would take weeks to heal, and while it did it would be sore and painful. I experimented with a lot of potential remedies topically and internally including essential oils but no matter what I did I still went through the long healing process only to have it happen again.

    Cynthe shared her own experiences with me. She said sometimes the herpes virus can linger in the body long after an original outbreak and manifest as canker sores and other sorts of skin infections. Looking back, I remembered the chicken pox I’d had as a child and the herpes zooster I had as a young adult, so I thought this was a likely reason. I was ready to give Trinity a whirl. And it has worked wonders. No more canker sores! I apply a little bit of Trinity to a new wound a few times, and I can literally feel and see healing taking place!

    As a result of my experience, my husband also asks for Trinity at the first signs of developing a cold sore. Trinity works for him too.

    Recently my co-worker had a fall, cutting and bruising one side of her lower lip. It was swollen and discolored, and she said it was very sore inside and out. I offered her some of my Trinity, and for the next few days she came to me for her ‘doses’ every few hours. I instructed her to put a drop on her finger and hold it on her inside lip so the oil would be absorbed before salivia took over. She applied a second drop to all of the bruised outside lip and area below it. She said Trinity relieved the pain, and I could see the tissue change as healing progressed. Now her lip is much improved and well on the mend. If I’d had helichrysum I would have suggested layering a drop of it over Trinity for additional help absorbing blood in the tissue and reducing inflammation.

    Thanks Cynthe! Brilliant combo! I’m happy!

  3. Cynthe,
    This is great information, however, I suffer from HSV 2 type Herpes. Do you have a blend that will alleviate the type 2 virus?

    • Ellen ~ So do I. I use Trinity™ for myself whenever I feel neuralgia pre-symptoms to avoid outbreaks (as long as I don’t mistake the discomfort as unexpectedly sore muscles). The blend is also great to speed healing and reduce itching / pain if one does develop sores. Haven’t yet been able to develop a formula that destroys the notoriously tenacious Herpes virus permanently. Would be so pleased if I could!!
