Organic Burn treatments

Sometims settlers cooked over open fires or at the fireplaces that as well provided their heat. I’m sure with all these open flames there were lots of burns.
As painful as burns are, I can imagine people rubbing whatever they had on them to try to stop the pain. Here are a few organic treatments they came up with.

Aloe Vera

One of the most ordinary organic burn treatments is probably Aloe. Many of us still use it today and it does work rather well. The burned area is just simply covered with the juice from the Aloe Vera plant.


For a minor burn milk was used, either by soaking the burned area in a bowl of milk or applying a cloth soaked in milk. This method could be repeated until the pain ceased. I have used this method myself,  it does work and the burn didn’t even blister.Â


Honey was another item used, the honey would be applied to the burn and then covered with a clean cloth. Honey is as well known for it’s anti-bacterial properties, so it aided in faster healing of the burn.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar seems to almost be a treatment all, it was frequently used on burns to. It will stop the pain and even help keep the burn from blistering and scarring.

Egg Whites

Egg whites were frequently used to treat burns. Remove the yellow and use only the whites. Apply to the burned area like a salve or you can put egg whites in a bowl and soak the burned area. This treatment will not only ease the pain, but it will as well help speed the healing and reduce the severity of scarring.

Witch Hazel

Witch Hazel is good for minor burns. Apply fresh Witch Hazel or Witch Hazel oil to the burn and it will give aid from the pain.


Plantain  leaves have organic anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties. Crush fresh leaves and apply the juice to the burn to help relieve the pain and speed the healing process.
