Sunburn and Herbal Care
Cat Ellis “Herbal Prepper Live”
A sunburn is never pleasant. But, what if the S has hit the F, and you get a bad sunburn? You could be down for days, leaving any necessary tasks undone and your location one defender less until you recover. This episode is will cover how you can get effective, fast relief for sunburns from herbal and natural remedies.
If you have ever had a bad sunburn, you know what a nightmare they can be. Too much time in the sun can cause intense pain, blistering, confusion, flu-like symptoms, inability to regulate your body temperature with alternating hot and cold sensations, nausea, dizziness, and vomiting. A bad sunburn can sap your every last drop of energy from you. Even a mild one can leave you with a debilitating headache.
Even the most careful can accidentally end up with a bad burn. A sunburn can sneak up on you, not fully developing for hours after you have come in from the sun. This is even worse if you typically avoid the sun. By avoiding the sun, whether for fear of burning, worries over wrinkles, or because we’ve had it pounded into us that time spent in the sun will cause us to get cancer, we put ourselves at greater risk of sunburns.
In this episode, we will discuss:
- Smart sun exposure vs risky sun exposure.
- How to take the painful sting out of a sunburn.
- How to reduce the redness from sunburn.
- Prevent sunburn from worsening/deepening after exposure.
- How to make a healing, herbal salve for broken, blistered skin.
Sunburn can be safely handled at home, if you know what to have on hand to be ready. It’s always best to avoid being burned in the first place. But, this year, if you should happen to find yourself stuck without shade, be ready with herbal and natural medicines for speedy sunburn healing.
