Treating burns with honey, burns are a dangerous type of wound being prone to injuries and we can be slow to heal.

Honey is particularly useful in treating burns and is less effective than other treatments, and there have been no signs of developing resistance to certain bacteria.

How does honey treat burns?

There are many reasons for the effectiveness of honey against Burns (and all kinds of wounds), and honey is useful in:

1. Relieve inflammation

Even if there are no injuries to the wounds, honey has shown an anti-inflammatory effect

And it is not only a side effect of its antibacterial properties.

2. Provides burns with protective physical edges

Honey creates a moist and protective border around the wounds, acting as a cover for it. This speeds up healing ( compared to those exposed to the air) and creates an environment.

Ideal for producing new skin cells, it also protects the skin from sticking to the bandage during treatment which may cause another skin grab and slow the healing process.

3. Feeds wounds directly

When Honey is applied to the wound it directly provides it with an easy source of carbohydrates, vitamins and fatty acids all of which are useful for wounds.

Honey is actually a direct benzene in the form of glucose for the wound, increases the speed and ability of the wound to heal, and also stimulates lymph flow which also helps in healing.

Method of using honey on Burns

The benefit of honey on Burns was well studied, even a protocol was proposed to use it on Burns. The study stated how to use it.

Better to treat burns, just by following these steps :

  1. Clean the burn the way we want, with oxygen water, saline or others.
  2. Grease the burn with honey according to the severity of the burn and ranges from a thin layer to a thick layer
  3. Cover the burn area greased with honey with dry medical gauze.
  4. Coverage is preferably changed twice a day for 2 – 3 days.

The lavender for additional benefits

Lavender also has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, so lavender oil can be added to honey and get a wonderful ointment.

And it smells nice for burns.


  • A quarter cup of honey
  • 20 drops of lavender oil
  • Silicone tube, for preservation which is optional


1. Mix lavender oil and honey and transfer them to the storage tube when using. The ointment can be kept in a small glass jar.

Or just prepare a small amount for use immediately. A little honey can be immediately greased on the burn and poured a few drops of lavender oil over it.
