How To Treat Minor Domestic Burns

0
Your rating: None
From time to time we all suffer from minor burns and scalds in the home from coming into accidental contact with a hot plate, iron or spitting oil. The burn might only be small but it is painful and unsightly. This is one preventive measure that is also a cure.
What you'll need: 
Distilled witch hazel
1: 
Keep a bottle of distilled witch hazel in a handy place in the kitchen. It is cheap to buy and available from any chemist.
2: 
Immediately after receiving a burn pour a liberal amount of the liquid over the affected area. Do not dab with a towel or cotton wool. Leave to dry.
3: 
The witch hazel takes away the burning sensation and often prevents the wound from blistering if applied quickly.
Conclusion: 
Witch hazel has many uses in the home and can also be applied to bruises in the form of a compress. Keep a bottle in the bathroom as a back up to the one in the kitchen.
