Your son rode his bike without his knee pads again, and this time he fell and got road rash.
Your daughter picked up a hot pan before realizing it just came out of the oven.
You stay out in the sun too long because you want to up your Vitamin D levels and didn't notice you got a sunburn.
All situations where our skin is begging for a soothing remedy now.
Make up the recipe ahead so it will be ready to go when you need it. Store in your refrigerator if you can – the cooler temperature will help this remedy feel even more soothing.
Using aloe vera gel as a base along with jojoba (for the gel recipe) and refrigerating it will make for a thick enough consistency to stay on the skin and not easily drip off. Smothering the burn is exactly what is needed so those analgesic essential oils like Helichrysum can do their job!
Hydrosols are a wonderful option for mild burns. Helichrysum, Lavender, Frankincense, and Calendula are some great options.
If you have an aloe vera plant in your home, now would be a good time to use it!
