Embarrassing episodes of Herpes simplex ("HS1" - cold sores, fever blisters), Herpes genitalis ("HS2" - genital herpes) and Herpes zoster (shingles) breakouts are unpredictable and can cause great emotional anguish for those who suffer from the infection. Use this powerful and effective ALL NATURAL formulation to treat, heal, prevent infection of new cells, & promote skin repair. If used at the very first evidence of a breakout (tingling, itching, small red bumps, etc.), Virus Vanquisher can prevent blisters from fully forming and spreading to healthy tissues. Virus Vanquisher also works to:
Reduce inflammation, redness, and pain.
Relieve itching, irritation, and discomfort.
Reduce blistering, cracking, chapping and heal damage and dried skin.
The effectiveness of Virus Vanquisher is due to its blend of active ingredients that are antiviral and help heal and protect skin.
Thyme essential oil contains Thymol, which has clearly demonstrated virucidal activity against HS1 and the ability of Thyme essential oil to reduce infectivity by >96%. [1, 2, 8] Also, a separate study demonstrated that Thyme was useful for HS2 virus outbreaks. 
Eucalyptus essential oil has been shown effective against HS1 and shingles. [4, 8]
Peppermint essential oil was found to affect HS1 and HS2 virus before adsorption, but not after penetration into the host cell.
Lemongrass completely inhibited the viral replication even at a concentration of 0.1%, and its antiviral activity was dependent on the concentrations of the essential oil. 
Chamomile has recently been shown to preferentially inhibit HS2. The researchers reporting on these results concluded that topical treatment of HS2 using Chamomile essential oil is a seemingly promising therapeutic option.
Tea Tree essential oil is able to reduce viral infectivity by >96%, as were the oils from eucalyptus and thyme.
Oregano essential oil has been shown to disrupt the viral envelope of the HS virus.
Suggested Uses: Shake well before use. Individual results will vary. Virus Vanquisher is most effective if used at the earliest indication of an outbreak (appearance of blisters, tingling, etc.) of an outbreak. Apply 3-5 times daily to affected area and cover if necessary. As healing occurs, reduce applications to 2-3 times daily. Not for internal consumption, external use only. Not for use by pregnant/nursing women or children.
