Aloe Cover the burned area with aloe vera gel.
Honey has antibacterial properties and will promote healing. After applying honey cover the area with some gauze.
Milk For a minor (first degree) burn, soak the burned area in whole milk for 15 minutes or so. You may also apply a cloth soaked in milk to the area. Repeat every few hours to relieve pain. Be sure to wash out the cloth after use, as it will smell badly.
Mustard For minor burns rub some mustard (hot dog style) on the burned area. It may sting a little, but it takes away the pain and reduces blisters and scarring. This remedy was provided by James R., CA.
Vitamin E Puncture a capsule and squeeze onto the burn. This will promote quick healing and prevent scarring.
Willard water This modified water can be found in health food stores. Anecdotes tell of its ability to promote healing and prevent scars.
