Lomaherpan cream is made with lemon balm mint – melissa officinalis. Lemon balm helps stop herpes simplex virus causing a sore. You can use the cream on face, genitals, fingers, wherever… Some people use it daily, but most of us just rub a very small amount into the place where we feel an outbreak starting up to prevent a herpes outbreak from developing. LomaHerpan (previously called LomaBrit) is made in Germany from melissa officinalis (lemon balm) in an emollient base. Marian has been counting:
“I have used this 14 times – when I notice the first sensations – and it has prevented every outbreak. During that time, on 4 occasions when I didn’t have the Lomaherpan cream with me, I had the outbreaks.”
Science bit for Lomaherpan treating herpes:
Melissa officinalis (lemon balm min) contains molecules that block the receptor sites on the skin cells. This prevents the herpes virus getting into the cells where it multiplies. If you wish, you can use melissa oil or extract from an aromatherapy supplier (mixed with a carrier oil).

There is also lemonbalm salve – a chapstick formulation – might be easier to apply?
Lemon balm was chosen after the makers tested other oils and found that lemon balm did the job best. So they just use lemon balm. Lomaherpan cream is widely used in Europe where lemon balm mint has an assessment report.
It used to be sold in UK chemists. Then this ceased. People who’d used it and loved it asked us to find it – so we added it to our ‘shop’. Each year we sell more, just on word of mouth and repeat orders.
