Any creams or ointments that contain Aloe Vera will ease the pain of burns. Also having an aloe plant growing in your home is of great benefit. You can simply break a tip off of the plant and rub the sap onto the burned area. This also helps with bee stings.

Calendula comes in the form of lotion, cream, and gel. It is very soothing for burns. This can be found at most Health food stores. It has a good reputation for helping your skin to heal. This is the best choice. Aloe vera can be found in other forms other than cream and is excellent for burns.

Vitamin E is best. I keep a bottle in my kitchen becase it is important to put it on immediately. If you have none, grab the cooking oil bottle.

A burn cream that does not block oxygen flow to the healing skin, acts as an antibiotic, and takes the edge off of pain is the best option. Tea Tree oil, Lavender oil, Peppermint and Eucalyptus oils all are effective remedies for burns.
