I don’t usually pass on material that I haven’t personally checked out, but this didn’t seem like something that could hurt anyone.

Growing up in Hawaii, the traditional remedy for burns is the Aloe plant. Most island homes have one of these in their kitchen, for just such an emergency.

The proper way to use this, is to break off a stalk, slit it and scrape out the gel inside. This makes a very good salve for burns. Sunburn too.

Then wrap the used stalk in aluminum foil and put in the refrigerator. You can use it again.

At the moment, I do not have an aloe plant in my kitchen. So here are some other ideas. I’m not sure if these are approved by the American Medical Association, but they are probably better than butter.

I do know that spreading an egg white on your face (with no burns) gives the effect of a quickie face lift.

Another burn remedy I heard about is to keep a bag of flour in the refrigerator and if you burn your hand in the kitchen, stick your hand in the flour for ten minutes.

I do know this works, as I did it. I didn’t have any flour that was cold, so I just scooped some out of the canister into a bowl. I dunked my thumb in the flour immediately, No water first.

The pain was gone and there was never any sign of a burn.

Hopefully there won’t be a ‘next time’, but then I will try the egg whites. And this is how you separate an egg.

p.s. I just poured hot coffee all over the palm of my hand. I cracked an egg and swished it around on my hand. I waited a minute or two and then did another one. Voila!. No pain and no sign of a burn. I forgot to ‘beat’ the egg whites first. (Maybe the coffee wasn’t as hot as it felt?)

A young man sprinkling his lawn and bushes with pesticides wanted to check the contents of the barrel to see how much pesticide remained in it. He raised the cover and lit his lighter; the vapors inflamed and engulfed him.  He jumped from his truck, screaming.  His neighbor came out of herhouse with a dozen eggs, yelling: “bring me some eggs!”  She broke them, separating the whites from the yolks.  The neighbor woman helped herto apply the whites on the young man’s face.  When the ambulance arrived and when the EMTs saw the young man, they asked who had done this. Everyone pointed to the lady in charge.  They congratulated her and said: “You have saved his face.”  By the end of the summer, the young manbrought the lady a bouquet of roses to thank her.  His face was like a baby’s skin.Healing Miracle for burns:Keep in mind this treatment of burns which is included in teaching beginner fireman this method.  First aid consists to spraying cold wateron the affected area until the heat is reduced and stops burning the layers of skin.  Then, spread egg whites on the affected are.One woman burned a large part of her hand with boiling water.  In spite of the pain, she ran cold faucet water on her hand, separated 2 eggwhite from the yolks, beat them slightly and dipped her hand in the solution.  The whites then dried and formed a protective layer.

She later learned that the egg white is a natural collagen and continued during at least one hour to apply layer upon layer of beaten egg white. 

By afternoon she no longer felt any pain and the next day there was hardly a trace of the burn.  10 days later, no trace was left at all and her skin had regained its normal color.  The burned area was totally regenerated thanks to the collagen in the egg whites, a placenta full of vitamins.
