Route to Great Health
“Ayurveda teaches us to cherish our innate-nature – “to love and honor who we are”, not as what people think or tell us, “who we should be.”

Four Amazing Ayurvedic Skin Burn Remedies for Quick Relief:
1.Wash with Cucumber Water Put the affected area under running tap water for a few minutes and wash with cucumber water or rose water. Both of these have astringent properties and help in preventing infection.
2.Apply Cucumber & Carrot or Aloe Vera Paste Grind cucumber and carrot in a blender or mash them finely in a mortar & pestle. Strain the juice out and apply the paste on the affected area. You can also crush Aloe Vera leaves and apply the pulp. If fresh leaves are not easily available, you can use Aloe Vera gel available in stores.
3.Ghee gives a cooling effect on the skin. If possible, take barks of Pipal and Bargad and mash it into a pulp. Add this to cow ghee and apply on the affected area. Applying plain ghee on burn area is also beneficial.
4.Honey & Coconut Oil Mix equal amounts of honey and plain coconut oil. Use this mixture on the burn area for relief. Instead of coconut oil you can use sesame oil as well.
