I’m Nikki, a busy mum, wife, Dental Hygienist / Therapist and creator of Nip-it. My loves are my family, my cheeky beaglier and a healthy, clean living.
The beginnings of Nip-it all started in a dental surgery, as my patients often turned up to their appointments with a cold sore. It got me thinking?
I need to educate people on how cold sores spread, how to prevent them and how to use a natural remedy to aid in the healing process.
After extensive research and testing on family, friends and anyone willing, Nip-it Healing Balm was born.
There is yet to be a cure for cold sores but it doesn’t mean there isn’t help at hand.
Cold sores are produced by the herpes simplex virus type 1. It is estimated that 80% of Australians have the herpes simplex virus and 2/3 of the world’s population. Although, only some people will experience outbreaks.
The virus spreads via saliva from kissing, sharing toothbrushes and utensils etc.
My magic ingredient is Liquorice Root and Lemon Balm. Although more research is needed they have been used in traditional Chinese, Greek, Egyptian natural medicine for centuries. These ancient cultures recognized its anti-viral, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. Studies have shown a significant reduction in the duration and severity of cold sores. Research also notices a “tremendous reduction” in the frequency of recurrence.
Myself, my sons, family & friends have also had great results with the healing balm for Eczema.
So that’s how Nip-it started!
I love this product! I use it on myself, family and friends and now I’d like you to try it.
The future is bright – I’m working on more products so watch this space.
