Treatment for burns

Have you ever burned yourself cooking ot on a fire or somehow, and it just burned so bad the burn would not go away?

My mom got a nasty looking burn on her arm from her oven.  She said it was very painful and tender as well.

I had remembered hearing that Lavender essential oil was great for burns and that it took the pain away.

I looked it up on one of my favorite research books Be Your Own Doctor, and sure enough Rachael Weaver recommended the same thing.

I had my mom put a few drops of the Lavender essential oil in her hand as well as I gave her a few drops of carrier oil because I did not want the oil to burn her more.   Then rub oils on the burn that was on her other arm.

She said that the pain almost immediately subsided.  We were both very surprised at the results.

The next day she told me that she couldn't believe how the pain was gone after just one treatment as well as how much the oil had dried up the blister stuff that was on her burn.

It still stayed some red for several days but the pain was gone. 
The redness may have gone away quicker had she continued to apply the oil but she only did it one time.
I know burns can be painful so I will keep Lavender oil around just for that if nothing else.
Although  hope none of us get a burn to experiment on.
There are also so many other benefits of Lavender oil as well.

I joyfully Recommend:
For more natural ways to treat your self you won't want to be without this book.
Every one that wants to do things naturally should have one of these.
This is one of the best natural books I have found.

I've heard of this, but never tried!

I just burned my hand the other day, while cleaning out the fridge! {I know sounds silly to burn your hand while cleaning out the fridge. It was on the back light bulb. OUCH!}

It took of a good junk of skin. Still hurts. Will have to try this! Thank you!

Thanks for sharing and linking up!

Much Love & Blessings,

Thanks, Love getting first hand accounts of using a natural remedy. I read lots of books on the subject, but hearing from someone who actually tries it is always better. God Bless

How wonderful to have this information. I don't want to test it either, but it certainly is good to store away in my mind.
