Fill Up the Bathtub

Soaking in a cool tub can take the heat out of your burn. Add some soothing holistic remedies to help speed the healing process. David Parker of The Body Deli skin-care line recommends The Sun Worshiper Bath, which you should soak in for at least 20 minutes:

  • 2 cups colloidal oatmeal
  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 3 cups buttermilk

Other bath add-ins to try include 4 to 5 green tea bags, 1 cup of white vinegar or generous amounts of lavender oil.
