Pau d'arco tincture or tea. It also comes in tablets, but I suggest liquids.
In addition to teas and tinctures, there are many other remedies -- pastes, salves, bath blends -- but I need specifics to make recommendations.
Meditation, yoga, exercise, proper rest, focused rhythmic breathing also assist with stress reduction.
Also, oral L-Lysine combined with Vitamin C is one of the best for HSV-1 and HSV-2.
