Sunburn ReliefNever apply fat (butter) or oil to a burn. It locks in the heat and causes your skin to continue to burn. To cool and aid the skin, add 5 – 10 drops of lavender essential oil to 4 – 8 ounces of cool water. Shake well. Apply by either misting the burn or by soaking an absorbent cloth and applying to the burn. Re-apply as often as necessary.
