Herbal Poultices for burns

Herbal poultices are another good home remedy for cooling and soothing minor burns, skin irritations, and rashes particularly when associated with dryness and itching.

Plantain's juice is in fact antibacterial and quite soothing when applied to a burn. Like comfrey, it contains allantoin, an anti-inflammatory phytochemical that speeds wound healing, stimulates the grow of new skin cells, and give the immune system a lift. Slippery elm poultices are also used for treating inflamed, or irritated skin and minor burns. Chickweed is also a good choice for minor burns.
