Burns and Sunburns

sunburn2For any burn you’ll probably want to use oils that have natural anti-inflammatory and analgesic (pain relieving) properties. Oils that contain a combination of these healing elements include lavender oil, rose oil, roman chamomile, eucalyptus oil, rosewood oil, lemon oil, helichrysum oil, and idaho calasam fir oil.

A great blend for burns that I rely on is the combination of lavender oil, rosewood, and ylang ylang oil. Together they provide anti-inflammatory help, pain relief, and act as a relaxant or sedative to help calm the nervous system and heal the skin, so next time you overdo it at the beach, I’d recommend having this blend on hand.

Note: We’re talking sunburns and burns from your hair straightener, not third-degree, here! If you have a third-degree burn, see your doctor or go to the emergency room.
