COLD SORE ALOE VERA GEL Cold sores are small, painful, fluid-filled blisters or sores that appear on the lips, mouth or nose that are caused by a virus. The sores can be painful and usually last a few days. Unlike most viral infections, the cold sore virus is not completely eliminated by the body defences. For this reason, cold sores often recur. Ingredients: Organic Aloe Vera, Bergamot, Lavender, Tea Tree, Rosewood and Niaouli essential oils.
