    Default Homemade Sunburn Relief Recipes

    Homemade Sunburn Relief Recipes

    Sun Burn Lotion
    1 c. non-medicated lotion
    5 drops clove oil (dont increase the amount, it will cause irritation)
    5 drops peppermint oil (dont increase the amount, it will cause irritation)
    2-4 teaspoons powdered Comfrey Root (or more if desired)
    2-4 tablespoons Aloe Vera gel (or more if desired)

    Mix together thoroughly in a bowl. Chill, for an even better cooling effect.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------And what's wrong with good old
    Aloe Vera plant. Just rub it on your sunburn and it won't be there the next
    day. Just break off a piece and rub the stuff that comes all over your burn!

    I'm very fair and prone to sun poisoning, and always found Nupercanal
    lotion unsurpassed for cooling relief

    Put regular black tea bags in a bowl of water in the fridge.
    As soon as it starts to make tea, use the bags to gently dab the
    cool liquid on the burn. Don't be afraid to let it drip, there's no
    such thing as too much. Just get a towel to catch the drips, or sit
    him in the tub. Follow up with aloe vera gel to keep the moisture in.

    Repeat as often as necessary.

    Blessings,
    Carla

    I have used 2 different things that work.

    One is an rememdy my mom used to use on me when I was a kid.

    Epsom Salt in Ice Water

    Pour some of the epsom salt in a large bowl with water dissolve add a
    lot of ice. Take a clean towel soak in water lay towel on burn.
    Towel will draw out heat, when towel is warm re soak in water, keep
    doing this until towel does not get warm anymore. It always has
    always worked on my kids and myself. And we usually did not peel.

    The other has been mentioned and that is vinegar, the one came from
    my husbands side of the family and if he gets burned he uses the
    vinegar. Just soak a towel in it and lays it on the burn.

    Good luck

    Hi! Put Vitamin E on it. Take a capsule & cut it open , squeeze it on
    the burn. Put it all over the burn & it will stop it hurting & help it
    heal too. My son had 2nd degree burns from a car radiator blowing up ,
    when he was 4 & he has no scars now from it. Also you can put a white
    t sirt on him over the burn & vitamin E . It works grest. Let me know
    how it goes. lisa

    This is a bit smelly but has worked for me. Fill a spray bottle with vinegar
    and spray or even dampen a cloth and daub it on.

    Re: Budget101.com : Sunburn Relief


    This is the best thing to use and it's Cider Vinegar; you can use straight
    and apply to the burn, of a cool bath and add the vinegar or both. This
    will help to relieve the pain, and if applied with a cloth he can keep them
    on as long as he wants, this will help the burning, help keep from
    blistering. But I do suggest that if the burn is more than a simple sunburn
    and going deeper into the layers of skin, I would go to see the Dr. if the
    way it sounds it could be at the point that it could cause a problem and he
    could become dehydrated and this will cause more problems. Donna
