Suggested oils for mouth ulcers and cold sores

Essential Oils for mouth ulcersThere have been quite a number of clients asking me for support with cold sores and mouth ulcers over the last few years.

The oil I suggest for both is Melaleuca also known as Tea Tree.

This oil is amazing for supporting the whole body as it is anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial.


It is also simple to use:

  • Just add 1 drop to the end of an ear bud and dab onto areas/s of concern.
  • Melaleuca comes in a pure 15ml 250 drops in a bottle and also a rollerball touch. I would suggest using the pure oil as the touch is diluted.
  • You may find a tingling sensation when you apply, this will soon disappear.
  • I would suggest using this oil for approx. 1 week and you should see both of these issues improve.

"I was once at a wellbeing show and one of the stall holders asked me about an oil for mouth ulcers. I suggested some Melaleuca (and added she may never speak to me again – as it is not the best of tastes). I gave her my bottle to use throughout the day and suggested she used it every 2-3 hours. After the event she came over and showed me in her mouth – they had gone down considerably and 2 had even gone completely!!"
