kitchen-burnAre you one of those chefs burning more than just your food in the kitchen? I constantly find myself burning my hands and fingers while preparing meals.  Most burns suffered during cooking are either first-degree or second-degree burns.  Today we are going to learn about alternative treatments you may want to try for burns.

First, let’s take a look at homeopathic remedies. Homeopathy is a medicine that was founded by Samuel Hahnemann and focuses on the principle that likes cures like. The most common homeopathic remedy for first degree burns is urtica urens. Urtica urens is used when the pain is stinging, burning and worse from warmth. If you think about it, this is very common in your typical cooking burn. Now let’s say the burn is a little worse – you grab a burning hot pot right out of the oven without an oven holder. Don’t worry! Causticum is what you may need. It’s very commonly used to treat more extensive second degree burns, the keynote symptoms for which are slow healing and blistering. Another homeopathic product to consider when suffering from a burn is calendula gel. However, homeopathy is not the only alternative treatment for burns.

Lavender Essential Oil is excellent for healing and disinfecting wounds and tissues. In fact, one of the most recognized benefits of pure lavender oil is its ability to soothe and heal burns. To apply it, dab the oil gently to the burn using your fingers or a cotton ball.

One last interesting treatment for burns includes honey. Honey has been used as a folk remedy of burns for years. It has known antibacterial activity helping to keep the wound clean and also promotes healing of the epithelium. In fact, in a randomized controlled trial, topically applied honey was found to be superior to conventional burn dressings.

So the next time you find yourself suffering from a burn, instead of reaching for the ice cubes, consider reaching for one of these alternative treatments for burns found here at
