Natural Treatment of Burns with Homeopathy

Homeopathy can be of good aid when burns are at hand.  The best way is to have a homeopathy kit on hand so that instant assistance can be achieved. External sprays, gels or drips, as well as internal methods, will be useful and will all work in tandem. Take the oral remedy every 2-4 hours and stop whenever there is improvement. External application should be reapplied as needed to keep the area moist and protected.

On a nutritional note, the daily intake of cod liver oil that supports the skin with vitamins A, D and E is very helpful.  Instead of buying synthetic forms of these vitamins, it is more valuable and economical to take this time-tested supplement.  Begin taking cod liver oil internally after any burn and continue as a daily fare.

For first-degree burns, including sunburn, Calendula salve or lotion will be useful in reducing pain and swelling.  For this kind of burn, Urtica urens 30, taken internally, will aid in the pain and aid in the overall countenance of the sufferer. Take it every 3-4 hours or until relief is obtained, then stop.

Second-degree burns should be met with the same as above, but if there is not enough relief, then consider taking Cantharis 30.  It, too, should be taken every few hours and stopped when relief ensues.

Third-degree burns should not be addressed with anything topical until after the healing process has been well underway for some time.   It would be prudent to leave the sprays and ointments until after your healthcare provider has given the OK.  Internally, the best choice for pain and the “shocky” feeling is Cantharis 30.  It should be used every three hours or so or until relief is at hand.  If there is no improvement, consider working with a homeopathic consultant. Meanwhile, medical care is paramount.

Electrical burns can be greatly aided by the use of Phosphorus 30 taken internally in the same fashion as above.

All homeopathic remedies are gentle and have been regulated by the FDA since its inception in the 1940s.  Unlike modern drugs, never has a homeopathic medication been removed from the market by the FDA. What methods of medicine can boast such a record? Homeopathy has the ability to grant us more personal empowerment and responsibility via an elegantly simple method of healthcare.  It has been practiced for nearly two centuries and has withstood the relentless test of time and the vicissitudes of many attacks because it works.  There is a timeless quality to real truths.

Homeopathy is the medicine for busy lives. There is nothing like the ability to take care of ourselves and our family with confidence and information that we can rely on. Homeopathy delivers that. It is inexpensive, gentle and most importantly, it works. Make it the mainstay of your first aid kit.

Joette laughingI am a homeopath with a worldwide practice working with families and individuals via Zoom. I'm also a teacher and most importantly, a mom who raised my now-adult children depending on homeopathy over the last 31 years. I lived decades of my life with food intolerances, allergies, and chemical sensitivities until I was cured with homeopathy, so I understand pain, anxiety, and suffering. You may feel that your issues are more severe or different than anyone else’s, but I have seen it all in my practice and in my work in India. My opinion is that nothing has come close to the reproducible, safe and effective results that my clients, students and I have achieved with homeopathy.

Call today and learn how homeopathy might just be the missing piece in your health strategy.

  1. Very interesting information! I’ve been experimenting with homeopathy for similar treatments recently and have really been impressed by its effectivity. I reposted this on my blog, which discusses alternative and holistic medicine, specifically in Mexico but also globally.

  2. Gina says:


    Do you sell homeopathy kits?

      1. Gina says:

        That’s great! Is there information on a web site?

  3. iakracolt says:

    Hi, a third degree burn is so serious that it destroys nerves to the extent that it is painless and requires medical excision.

    What is Cantharis 30, how does it help with a third degree burn? Would you solely rely on Cantharis 30 if you got a third degree burn?

    1. The homeopathic information I post on my site, blog, etc is intended to aid in issues that are not of this seriousness. The more grave the injury, the more one needs to depend on a medical doctor . Homeopathically, a 30th potency will help a bit, but don’t expect miracles with such a low potency. The case could be taken by a homeopath and higher potencies would likely be required.

  4. Buffalo Mom says:

    thanks for the great info!

    Can I use these two remedies for other burns too? Not just for sunburns?

  5. Buffalo Mom says:

    So glad that Ron Paul is taking a stand against the federal government’s attacks on that amish farmer. Let’s hope his law gets passed!

  6. Mary says:

    It’s amazing how Gelsemium was able to address the after affects of the Earthquakes-physical pain,fear, distressful dreams, systemic fatigue..i know from experience, that remedy has helped me so much. great post.joette

  7. I just read that Calendula salve is one of the best at-home treatments for sunburn! Great post, thank you for taking the time to share!

  8. Paula says:

    Somewhere in your posts you mentioned growing your own Marigolds to make your own Calendula tonic. How do you make it? Thank you

    1. It’s so easy! Fill a jar with the marigold blossoms and pour 80 proof vodka to the top of the jar (Devil’s Spring is good) and allow to set for a fortnight as they say in the old botanical texts. After this 2 week period, you may decant it and you’re left with one of the most effective antiseptics known to mankind. To use for a wound, dilute 1:20 and apply to the area.

  9. M. says:

    Please do make sure the marigold used is calendula officinalis. This is the calendula used for healing. Marigolds in the Tagetes genus may not be effective.

    As an aside–and I think you’ll really like this, Joette–“marigold” refers to the Virgin Mary, “Mary’s gold”.

    Thank you for all the information you provide, Joette. It is a blessing to my family. God bless you.

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      I didn’t know that lovely fact about marigold. Thanks for sharing it!

  10. Shakhnoza says:

    Is there natural solution for not leaving burning scar (esp on the face)?

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      I cover the different tyes of skin conditions including scars in my course, Skin the Ugly Truth. Should you be interested, you may find it under my course list.

  11. zufi says:

    According to Banerji protocol in their book it’s :

    Cantharis 200C and Arsenicum Album 200C, one dose every 3 hours alternately.

    Is there an alternative to Cantharis for those who’d prefer to avoid it, if possible ?

    Thank you.
