As Forum Mom on the Herpes Life Forum pages, I hear about a lot of Home Remedies that people claim work for them. Many of these claims are one-off things that may be just a coincidence, but over time, it has become obvious that there are a number of things that people are using that have at least some usefulness for either reducing the pain or helping to reverse/control outbreaks by killing off the virus that is present at either skin level or creating some kind of environment that reduces the virus’s ability to replicate. As I come across products that I can really back and believe in, I will post my experiences and information here.
Today I am covering Fractionated Coconut Oil. Many people on the forum report that the oil soothes the outbreaks and helps to reverse the outbreaks. This is not totally surprising as Coconut Oil contains Capric and Caprylic acids which are known to have Antibacterial and antiviral properties.
I was recently given a bottle of La Vida Essentials Fractionated Coconut Oil to try out and review. I have given a full review HERE of all the great properties that makes it perfect as a Massage Oil, Cooking Oil, and more. But what REALLY excited me was the uses for people with Herpes.
Given that standard Coconut Oil contains “normal” amounts of the Capric and Caprylic Acids, finding a product that will have a more concentrated amount brings the possibility that it will be even MORE effective for helping anyone with ANY bacterial or viral issue. On top of that, you don’t get the “coconut” smell and it won’t stain your clothing!
This is definitely a product worth trying as part of your Home Remedy arsenal…AND… there are so many other uses, you may well find that you want to purchase a case at a time…LOL
