    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

    Try soaking a cloth in vinegar and putting that on the burn. I did that for
    my daughter and it helped quite a bit.

    Re: Budget101.com : Sunburn Relief


    I don't know if you have access to an aloe plant but that's what we use.
    Living in Fort Lauderdale we are really good about sunscreen but every now and
    then a spot gets missed. The fresh aloe really does the trick.

    Hope he feels better soon.

    I know that this is a little late, but for anyones future reference, Milk of
    Magnesia works wonderfully for sunburn. The generic version is what I use. Just
    put in freezer for a few to get it good and cold and apply to the burn. Takes
    the sting right out.

    hope this helps someone,
    Cheri

    Also, if he starts to peel, sugar scrubs work wonders.
    They're very exfoliating so the peeling is under
    control and not so gross (although that may take the
    fun out of it for a 9yo boy), painless, and the oils
    are extremely moisturizing

    Sugar scrubs are basically the same concept as a salt
    scrub like you may find in bath and body works or the
    like--I'm sure you can make them yourself with some
    coarse sugar, jojoba oil or similar good body oil (do
    not use mineral oil for this or you'll just make it
    worse) and some essential oils. They are kind of a
    muddy consistency, but still very grainy.

    The stuff I have I bought from a friend who was trying
    out selling Mary Kay--you may want to try that or Avon
    or the like.

    Sorry I can't be of more help!
