The Best Burn Salve
Homesteading can be rough on a person with all of the physical labor and chores that are rough on the body. Even if one is very careful, things still happen, and thus the invention of this Best Burn Salve! This salve is also great for when you figure out you are burning toys on the bottom of your frying pan and need to get them off before the house burns down. Not that I would know about that first-hand…. 🙂
This is a fairly simple DIY recipe to mix up and will keep for many months in a cool, dry place. Here’s how to mix it up:
The Best Burn Salve Recipe
What You Need:
- 1/4 cup Raw Honey (Where to Buy)
- 1 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (Where to Buy)
- 1 Tablespoon Aloe Vera (Where to Buy)
Whip the mixture together with a spoon or even with the electric hand mixers. Store in a small glass jar.
When you need to use, first cleanse the area with raw Apple Cider Vinegar. This will help restore vitamins and minerals to the skin and will also help restore the natural ph balance of the skin. (Read More)
After cleansing the area with apple cider vinegar, apply the Burn Salve to the area. Cover in gauze to keep the salve in a concentrated place so the burn can heal. Of course, do not use this on burns that require medical attention.
Raw Honey is a pretty amazing thing. Studies have proven it to be effective on healing burns and other skin issues. If you are interested in learning more about honey, check out our article on the Uses for Honey.
This formula also works great for those really bad sunburns as well, so you may want to make up a slightly larger jar for the summer!
