I've compiled some sources on the natural healing properties of human saliva:

some select quotes:

"This study demonstrates that members of the histatin family, which up to now were implicated in the antifungal weaponry of saliva, exert a novel function that likely is relevant for oral wound healing"

"This research may offer hope to people suffering from chronic wounds related to diabetes and other disorders, as well as traumatic injuries and burns. In addition, because the compounds can be mass produced, they have the potential to become as common as Antibiotic creams and rubbing alcohol."

"Scientists found that histatin, a small protein in saliva previously only believed to kill bacteria was responsible for the healing."

"Some salivary proteins have even been found to even neutralize the HIV virus."

I do not recommend just licking your lips, either. The important part is to apply a natural lip balm such as Palmer's Cocoa Butter right afterwards.
