Here's my favorite oil for burns….
We've had a couple run-ins with the sun in the past couple weeks.
Two of my kids came home sunburned (too much time in the sun and no sunscreen), on two different occasions.
I turned to my go-to oil that I keep in the kitchen: kukui nut oil (pronounced koo-koo-ee). I've been using this oil the past couple years, ever since a Hawaiian customer put me on to it. It's an amazing oil that works immediately to relieve and heal minor burns.
For a sunburn, it would be too oily to apply this alone. So I mixed the kukui nut oil with aloe vera gel, in a ratio of about 1:3. Here's a photo of my 16 year old, the before was taken about 12 hours before the after (see left).
After posting this, Kelli from our MadeOn community wrote in: "Add lavender oil to your sunburn relief arsenal! Lavender will take your sunburn and transform it to a tan overnight (unless it is an EPIC burn, then 48 hours of application every 4ish hours) I mix mine in a 6 drops to 1Tbs coconut oil ratio and rub it in! I add a drop or 2 of peppermint if I'm in the hot stage and leave it out if I'm in the cold stage!"
