Virgin coconut oil has a natural cooling nature that is very helpful when healing burns. After submersing your burn in cold water, apply coconut oil generously, and reapply throughout the day to keep the burn well coated with the oil. This helps to relieve the pain and also speed up the healing process and reduce scarring.
You can also add lavender essential oil to the coconut oil to help heal the burn. Lavender is even used in some hospitals to treat burns. Simply add a few drops of lavender to your coconut oil, to some water, or apply neat after rinsing the burn in cold water. It helps you avoid scarring, and it takes the sting out of the burn quickly. Plus it smells amazing!
