I burned the top of my had while putting wood in the fireplace. My hand sat on the metal screen frame for a couple seconds. I knew it was going to be a very bad burn. I instantly started putting Coconut Oil on it. I put enough on so it looked wet. I did not rub it in. I wanted it to soak up the oil. The most important part of this is keeping it covered in CO. It was unbelievable that the hot, aching burning feeling from a new burn disappeared almost immediately. I burned myself a couple of hours before bed time. When I woke there was no blister! This was so surprising because this was a nasty burn. I continued to put CO on it every chance I go. I think CO is a miracle for so many things that I keep it in my kitchen, bathroom and a tiny jar in my purse :). After two days it became brown and scabbed. It never swelled. In a few more days the scab started to flake off and you cannot even see a burn! This is why I am writing! I have used it before for burns and it was great, but I wanted to write because this was a very bad burn that normally would have blistered and scarred. I use Virgin, Organic Coconut Oil.

Hope this helps someone. I get great advice myself and have used many treatments with success-THANKS!
