Lavender Oil is the Winner for Burns!

I'll explain why. I believe it is antibacterial and anti inflammatory. It's easy and clean to apply and doesn't get in the way like foil would. I use essential quality lavender oil. I like now foods brand. I just apply a sufficient amount on the burn. But first I ran my burn in cold water or ice water. Reapply if it still hurts.

I really feel this is the best remedy of all for burns, but hey if you don't have it, maybe you have foil use that. If you have a serious burn please go to the Dr. I ask that you donate to this site if you have been helped by a remedy, any little help. God is love - Sunny

Lavender Oil is the fastest of all pain relief methods of all the applications I have tried from this site so far! It also stopped the development of the blister, and promoted extremely fast healing.

After picking up a searing hot metal frypan from a 350 degree oven, I knew I had a severe burn forming on my fingers and palm of hand. Extremely painful!

I immediately applied lavender oil that I had nearby, and the pain subsided almost instantly. I reapplied it again in a few minutes when I could feel a very small amount of pain starting up. I applied it again in about 20 minutes when I was heading out to the door for a meeting but no pain at that time. No need for bandages, although I was concerned earlier that I would be in too much pain to drive a car. But nothing.

The burns never developed into blistering, but the next day there only a few light reddish flat areas like a burned area would look weeks out after the skin had peeled. Only 1 spot peeled in a matter of a day or two, and it was completely healed underneath.

I applied the lavender a couple of times in the next day just for good healing. But I don't know if that was necessary.

I know this works and is not psychosomatic because it was tried on my toddler grandson who burnt his fingers and nothing could instantly stop his howls without truly working. Instant quiet and no burns.

Gattefossé, a French scientist, discovered and recorded his success with lavender essential oil after using it for a severe personal burn in the lab. This remedy led to his interest in how essential oils work.

Other EARTH CLINIC remedies tried that work:

I also have used egg whites remedy from this site which also works very nicely. I had a huge burn the size of a silver dollar and depth of blister about 1/3" on my inner lower arm. The egg white removed the pain although I had to keep applying it and healed it within 24 hours: The blister was gone before the next day (dehydration of the fluid?) and there was no scarring. Beautiful remedy.

The mushrooms remedy which are recommended on this site also works for pain and healing, but it smells of mushroom and is messy under the bandages. The healing process is fairly rapid within a couple of days, however, I found the skin color to be quite dark in the healing process and to be more rigid and maybe more susceptible to being broken. I used to keep raw mushrooms in the freezer.

I have been extremely successful with using 100% essential Lavender Oil for any type of burns. Just apply liberally and don't cover. I continue applying it for a few hours and get immediate results with no burning or blistering, just a little tenderness. My bottle is stationed in my kitchen so it is handy.

I was as surprised as you will be.

I badly burnt the back of my right hand when putting the top back onto the coffee percolator, my hand going into the pot of hot coffee, in my panic to get my hand out I forgot to make my hand small enough to exit the narrow top of the pot. A blister the size of my hand appeared immediately. A & E ran my hand under the cold tap and applied cream. My hand was frying with this cream. They told me to come back in a few days and I may need a skin graft. In agony that night I took out my natural remedy book. LAVENDER it said. Grabbing the lavender from the bedside cabinet I saturated my hand, within minutes the pain subsided. I continued to use it over the next few days. Went back to the hospital who could not believe how it had healed and no scarring. I always keep a bottle of good quality lavender oil in my bag for burn emergencies. I hope by sharing this I may help someone, somewhere. Evelina

I've used neat lavender essential oil on minor burns for years for pain relief and speedy healing, but the real test came when I burnt my hand fairly badly with steam. Despite running it under a cold tap & applying ice my hand turned bright red & began to blister. It hurt like crazy. I applied neat lavender essential oil for the pain which took my breath away every time I moved my hand or a slight breeze caught it. The lavender oil dulled the pain for an hour or two then had to be reapplied. The next day, the pain had gone completely, as had the blisters and redness. It was really quite a dramatic healing effect. It calms the pain immediately, but needs to be reapplied every 2 hours or so, and also heals the burn. Amazing stuff.

Use lavender oil (preferably pure) to relieve pain from burns, also speeds up healing process and leaves burn area with no or almost no scarring.

The essential oil of lavender applied directly on to the burn immediately eases the pain and if you are consistent with applying it, will not peel.
