Herbal combination best for burns

MagazineMay 2005 (Vol. 16 Issue 2)Herbal combination best for burns

After years of studying and using alternative remedies, I find that the most effective treatment for burns (first- and second-degree) is Weleda's Combudoron Lotion [a herbal combination of Arnica flowers and Urtica urens leaves]

The wound should be held under the cold tap while a bowl of cold water and lotion is prepared. Dr Bach's Rescue Remedy should be given for shock and distress. For severe burns, it may be necessary to keep the affected area in the solution for a couple of hours. It stops the pain, and prevents blistering and scarring. A dressing can then be applied with either more of the lotion or Combudoron Ointment.

It's also useful to know that any good, unheated, clear honey will prevent and treat infection. There is no need for antibiotics. - Helen Jarvis, Ilkeston, Derbyshire
