How can I use herbal extracts to treat sunburn?

Add lavender to a bath or to aloe vera gel for an aromatherapy sunburn treatment.

Lavender is said to have healing agents that are particularly as a sunburn treatment. If you have the misfortune to have gotten sunburned, add a few drops - around 20 - of lavender oil to a cool bath and soak. Relax in the bath for around ten minutes, breathing in the aroma. The scent of lavender has calming properties that will soothe your burn and will make you feel less tense. Alternatively, add a small amount of lavender oil to some aloe vera gel or your favorite after-sun body lotion and apply as usual for sunburn relief. Be sure to read any directions or warnings that have come with the essential oils, and be very careful when using them, since they are concentrated extracts.

Use Tea Tree oil, this keeps your burn from blistering and will promote a beautiful tan. Its wonderful also if you get popped with grease from a frying pan or something like that, Tea Tree oil prevents your skin from blistering and also keeps out any type of skin infections because of its anticeptic qualities. Just apply the oil directly to where its needed.
