DIY Burn Salve: Your Best Home Remedy for Burns

Do you love camping? I do!

Every time I go camping, I always look forward to the highlight at night: the bonfire. Sitting around the bonfire with friends, roasting marshmallows, singing along to a guitar… it’s all just perfection. Along with the excitement of a bonfire comes the danger of getting burned. Fret no more! If that happens, bring out your home remedy for burns and shoo the pain and burns away! 

Even if you are just having a stay-cation at home, this may come in handy when your inner Iron Chef skills awaken and you get a little too close to that open flame on the stove.

Hi! Katie here, certified aromatherapist and creator of our Essential Oil Recipe Box, which includes this recipe this month.

I love that this salve melts on the skin when applied and works really well for soothing relief.


Beeswax helps make this salve the right consistency for a natural home remedy for burns.

Fractionated Coconut Oil

Fractionated Coconut Oil is used to dilute the essential oils, making sure it’s safe to apply to your skin. It has antibacterial properties and helps make this recipe have the right consistency for a salve.

Lavender Essential Oil is a great essential oil for soothing the pain from minor burns.
