Burn home remedies using essential oils are easy to make or apply to the body. And essential oils have been used for thousands of years to treat burns successfully!
Did you know a French scientist, René Gattefossé, was severely burned in a laboratory accident in the 1900's? Yes, and he quickly immersed his hand in a vat of Lavender Oil. Gattefossé found that the lavender oil not only promoted tissue regeneration quickly but healed the wound with no scarring! Wow…I love the benefits of lavender!
And as the story goes, his accident re-confirmed the usefulness and effectiveness of using therapeutic grade essential oils as natural remedies and for burn home remedies.
What Types of Burns can be Remedied with Essential Oils?
All types of burns will benefit from using essential oils. And you can use them for cleaning burns, managing pain, combating infection and to prevent sunburn.
What are the Types of Burns?
There are three burn types:
What Essential Oils are best for First Degree Burns?
We want to use oils that have natural anti-inflammatory and analgesic (pain relieving) properties. The oils that contain these properties are:
Lavender or LavaDerm Spray would be my first choice for burn home remedies. Although Australian Blue is excellent as well. It can be applied NEAT(undiluted) directly on the sunburn or dilute if necessary. LavaDerm Spray contains lavender, aloe vera and trace minerals and is very effective for cooling and hydrating the skin which is very important to healing any kind of burn.
What Essential Oils are best for Second Degree Burns?
For second degree burns all of the same oils can be used. But again, lavender and LavaDerm are highly useful. Spray the burn immediately with LavaDerm; and continue to mist the burn up to 4 or 5 times per hour for at least the first two hours. Also, apply lavender directly on the area after the areas has been misted.
LavaDerm can be used every 15-30 minutes for the first 24 hours. Days 2-5, mist every hour and apply lavender as well. And continue with this procedure 3-6 times per day until the burn is healed.
What Oils can I use once the Burn is Healing?
