Treating a burn with lavender oil

I've said it before, I'll say it again: lavender oil works wonders on burns! It takes that residual hot, burning feeling away. You know - the pain that gets worse when it comes in contact with heat or warmth of any kind?

My advice: put a burn under cool water or ice and then put a drop or two of lavender oil on it. It really is amazing how quickly it kills the pain.

Why yes, I did just happened to have recently burned my hand on our 12-inch cast-iron skillet while taking it out of the oven. Why do you ask? Yeeeeeouch!

Hahahaha. Oh dear. I could have used that advice a month and a half ago when I got a steam burn that has since left a nice scar on my forearm. Amateur Cook.
