Honey for Treatment of Minor Burns
I had burned my fingers quite badly with splashed frying oil and suffered pain all day until I got my hands on a little pot of homemade honey/bees wax mixture designed as a lip balm and handcream. It has the exact consistency of vaseline but smells heavenly! Within 5 - 10 minutes all the pain had disappeared and the redness and swelling started to go down. I continued to use it for several days each night before bed and when the damaged skin peeled off, underneath the new skin was pink but healthy. There was no fluid collection under the skin or any infection. In my opinion, for relieving the pain of minor burns, honey bees wax is the perfect solution!
