Whether from the sun, or steam or hot liquids, burns are never fun: they destroy the skin’s layers and sometimes, when severe, burns need medical attention. Lavender essential oil is great for burns: it not only takes the sting out, but it also helps the healing process.
The first thing you need to do after getting a burn is to stop the burn (get away from the source) and remove jewelry and clothing that’s close to the burn. Then cool the skin off with cold water and apply some lavender oil to the burned area. Below are a few recipes you can use.

I burned myslef once with hot tea (poured it all on my lap), and calmed my skin with coconut oil mixed with lavender oil. It was unbelievable how fast it worked to relieve the pain, and I ended up with absolutely no scars. My burn was gone on a couple of days.
For me, lavender oil is magic! I have a bottle of it in my kitchen cupboards and it saved my skin many times 😉
