How The Cold Sores Remedy Works

Cold sores are a highly contagious viral infection that cause small, painful blisters to develop around the mouth.

This black tea and garlic remedy helps to treat cold sores in the following ways:

  • Black Tea: Black tea contains a range of phytonutrients that help to combat viral infections such as cold sores.
  • Garlic: Garlic has antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties and treats cold sores directly while also soothing the associated redness and soreness.

How To Prepare The Cold Sore Remedy

  • Crush 1 teaspoon of dry black tea leaves and 1 clove of garlic using a mortar and pestle.
  • Mix these crushed ingredients with a small amount of water to form a paste.
  • Apply the paste to the cold sore for 15 minutes and then wash it clean with warm water.
  • Use this remedy every couple of hours until the cold sore has healed.
