7 Effective Home Remedies for Minor Kitchen Burns

No matter how cautious we are in the kitchen, there are occasions you may accidentally grab a hot pot, get splashed with bubbling sauce or take a hit of steam when pouring off boiling liquid.

And for today I’ve prepared for you seven natural healing applications to keep in mind that can help successfully nurse minor burns immediately, typically at least one will be at your fingertips at any given time.

Seriously, be careful in the kitchen. We all know, that burns can get extremely serious if not dealt promptly, they can turn out to be grave and fatal, however the minor burns can be effectively treated at home. First thing to remember is to run hand or affected area immediately under a tap running cold water. Next step is to use a single treatment listed below for continued pain relief (a few also facilitate fighting infection or blistering).

Aloe Vera (of course it goes first here)

7 Effective Home Remedies for Minor Kitchen Burns
Aloe, probably the most well-known home remedy for burns, will stop pain and inflammation, reduce swelling, and stimulate skin growth and repair. One of the instances growing this succulent comes in handy. Once the plant is large enough, regularly snap off a leaf to keep in the refrigerator–a dab of the plant’s cool gel soothes like no other! But it isn’t strictly required to chill Aloe Vera first to be effective, break off a piece of the leaf and apply to skin–you’ll still be impressed how fast it works.

A famous sore throat remedy, honey is a natural antibiotic, which helps to prevent your burn from becoming infected. It has a natural pH balance that is inhospitable to bacteria, so once applied topically, it can also kill any existing bacteria or infection lingering on the skin. Honey will also cool the burn, relieve pain, and help the skin to heal.

Milk

Coconut oil

7 Effective Home Remedies for Minor Kitchen Burns

One of the traditional remedies for burns, coconut oil is packed with vitamin E. Vitamin E not only treats the burn but also heals the skin. For the post burn mark on your skin, you can mix half a teaspoon of lemon juice to a teaspoon of coconut oil and massage on the mark. The acidic properties present in lemon juice would help lighten the mark. Coconut oil is also packed with many anti-fungal properties which can further prevent any infection over the burn.

What to avoid

7 Effective Home Remedies for Minor Kitchen Burns
1) Do not put ice on a burn. That can make the burn worse.
2) Do not use butter or eggs on the burn. They are not effective.
3) Do not use cotton balls. The small fibers can stick to the burn and cause an infection.
However, if you experience any of the symptoms of burn getting worse, you should visit an emergency room.

Take care and happy Monday!
