Many people believe the best thing you can do for a burn is to put something fatty orgreasy on it, such as butter. But this is not true. Any burn is pitta, the dosha of fire. The hot, sharp, burning quality of pitta immediately creates searing pain and inflammation A fatty substance is in fact contraindicated, as it would serve to aggravate the pitta.
The most effective way to treat a burn is with cold. Immediate application of something cold, such as ice or cold water, is the best remedy. If you have no ice cubes, use a bag of frozen vegetables from the freezer.
After applying cold, make a paste of sandalwood and turmeric powders (equal amounts) mixed not in water but in aloe vera gel. Use about 1 tablespoon aloe vera and 1/2 teaspoon each of the sandalwood and turmeric. Mix them together, and apply the paste topically. This will be soothing and healing.

We are not discussing serious burns in this section but common house?hold burns, such as from inadver? tently touching an iron, a skillet, or a cigarette. For serious burns, particu?larly over a larger area of the body, a person needs hospitalization, plasma, and intensive care.
Or, after the ice, when the burning sensation stops, apply bitter ghee (tikta ghrita).
Cilantro is beneficial for burns. Make fresh cilantro juice by placing a handful of cilantro in the blender with about 1/3 cup of water. Strain. Take the juice internally (2 teaspoons 3 times a day), and put some of the pulp directly on the skin.
It is important not to apply a bandage to cover the burn. Keep it open to the air. If you apply a bandage, the body's heat may affect the burn adversely. So apply the herbal paste or bitter ghee, and leave it alone.
