7. Vinegar


The astringent and antiseptic properties in vinegar can be very helpful in treating minor burns and preventing infection.

  1. Dilute white vinegar or apple cider vinegar in an equal amount of water. Use the solution to rinse the burned area.
  2. Later, cover the injured area with a cloth soaked in diluted vinegar. Replace the cloth with a fresh one every two to three hours.

8. Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender essential oil has both antiseptic and painkilling properties. The oil will also reduce the risk of scarring.

  • Add five drops of lavender oil to two cups of water. Soak a clean cloth in it and use it as a compress several times. You can also apply lavender oil directly but using essential oils without diluting them is usually not recommended.
  • Another option is to mix a few drops of lavender essential oil in two teaspoons of honey apply it on the affected area few times a day.

  1. I thank God for this page for home remedies. I burnt my pinky finger including the one next to it….luckily it was my left hand. That burning sensation is a kick tout my butt. I wasn’the able to sleep after I gotten my figures burned while cooking dinner for my family. I tried the Black tea that following morning soaking 3 black tea bags and waited for it to cool down with the 3 tea bags still in it. It was pitch black by the time it cooled down…I took 2 tea bad that was soaked and placed one on each finger along with a wash cloth soaked in tea and wrapped it over the 2 the two teams bags and my two fingures. Awwwweeee….instant relieve. I was able to sleep. So while taking a knap, I left the tea bags and wash cloth over my fingers. I put a glove over it so I and tied it so I won’the get my bedding wet. I placed a dried bath towel where I placed my hands just in case the tea liquid leaked out of the gloves….thanKhairah you, thank you, thank you so so so much….this page is a blessing…2 thumbs up….

  2. Actually warm water is more beneficial than cold water. Recent studies show that warm water is more effective at stopping burn progression and increasing tissue survival.
