When you needed a home remedy for burns, you need it quick!
A few months ago, I was getting ready to pull a pan out of the broiler (set on 550 F degrees) and my hot pad slipped. I grabbed the broiler rack with my bare hand! Instantly there were burned stripes across all 4 of my fingers. The pain was excruciating!
Thankfully I’d done enough research on essential oils and remembered reading about a home remedy for burns, so I grabbed my oils book and quickly looked it up with one hand as I ran my burned hand under cold water.
Next I snapped a piece of Aloe off of my potted Aloe Vera plant. I squeezed the gel out onto the burns and blended it with the a couple drops of Lavender oil. Within a very short time the pain stopped. It was amazing. I didn’t expect it to work that well or that quickly.
The next day there was no pain, soreness or blisters at all. I could still see the stripes, but no ill effects.
Lavender Essential Oil and Aloe Vera gel together are an amazing home remedy for burns!
Here’s a great article on the Southern Kraze blog that I wanted to share with you on how to grow your own Aloe Vera plant. Aloe is great for all kinds of home remedies like burns, bites, rashes, sunburn and constipation just to name a few.
….Important Essential Oils Note….
Note: All oils are not alike. The FDA says that “100% pure” only has to contain 5% essential oil. I know… WTFrig, right?!! The rest can be fillers of who knows what. YUCK!! Be sure you only use oils that are exactly what they say they are and have no fillers of any kind. I’ve done tons of research to find the best…
I love Young Living Oils. If you are a member you get a 24% wholesale discount and can earn oils too! But if you don’t want to do that, I highly recommend Plant Therapy Oils. You don’t have to be a member and their prices are great, plus free shipping! Both companies offer pure high quality products with no fillers, do outside 3rd party testing on their oils and are very organic & environmentally conscious which means a whole lot in my book!
