Burn Relief.

Oil Rub for Burned Skin
 
This mixture gives relief. And you can safely use it several times a day.
1 drop tea tree essential oil
1/4 cup organic olive oil
1. In a small dish, dilute the essential oil with the olive oil
2. Gently massage the mixture over the burned area.
Soothing Oil for Burns

If the burn area is large, you may need to double the ingredients for this soothing oil.
2 capsules vitamin E, 400 IU
5 drops lavender essential oil
1. Pierce each vitamin E capsule with a needle and squeeze the contents into a small dish. Stir in the lavender essential oil.
2. Gently massage into the skin.
Burn Spray
 
Applying a spray doesn’t hurt the burn the way massaging in an oil might. This cool mixture offers relief and healing at very little cost.
1-ounce ice water
1-ounce aloe vera gel
25 drops total lavender, chamomile, spearmint, and yarrow essential oils
1 capsule vitamin E, 400 IU
1. In a small spray bottle, mix the ice water, aloe vera, and essential oils. Pierce the vitamin E capsule with a needle, squeeze its contents into the mixture and chill.
2. Shake before use and spray over burned area. Keeps in the refrigerator for several days.
Antiseptic Lotion for Burns
 
Nobody wants a burn to become infected. Here’s a quick remedy that costs only pennies.
1 handful dried plantain leaves
1/2 cup hot water
10 drops tea tree essential oil
1. In a blender, add a handful of dried plantain leaves to about 1/2 cup hot water. Begin blending, slowly adding water or plantain leaves as necessary until the mixture becomes thick, like oatmeal. Mix in the tea tree oil.
2. Spread mixture over affected area. You can refrigerate the remainder for several days.
Sunburn Cooler
 
Brew a pot of regular tea {Lipton, Salada, or a store brand will do fine}. The tannins in the tea help soothe the burning feeling.
3 tea bags or 3 tablespoons loose tea
Boiling water
1. In a teapot, place the tea. Pour in boiling water, cover, and steep 5 minutes. Cool
2. Use a cloth or cotton ball to dab the sunburn with cooling tea.
Grow Your Own Aloe Vera Plant
 
You can buy an aloe vera plant at any garden shop or nursery. Aloes like warmth, so in most areas, it is safer to keep the plant potted and place it near a sunny window than to plant outdoors. {You can move the pot outdoors during the summer months.} Re-pot an aloe vera in a wide rather than a deep pot; it has shallow, spreading roots. Use one with a drainage hole and fill it with good potting mix with extra perlite. Don’t over water this succulent plant. Let its soil dry completely between soakings. Fertilize it yearly, in the spring, with a half-strength 10-40-10 fertilizer mixture. When you need some aloe vera gel, just cut a lower leaf off the plant and squeeze it.
