(NaturalNews) There are three levels of burns, two of which can usually be handled in your home or apartment.

First degree burns affect the outer part of your skin only. Sunburn and scalding from hot water or steam are a couple of examples of first degree burns.

Second degree burns are more painful and produce blistering or loss of some outer skin, while perhaps affecting underlying skin. If it covers a large area or if it is on your hands and face, you may want to seek medical help quickly. But these first aid tips can apply to first and second degree burns before getting medical attention.

Third degree burns are the worst, going deeply and possibly destroying muscle tissue. Then it's 911 or rush to the hospital ER time. These tips are not recommended for third degree burns. Ironically, there may be less pain experienced due to nerve damage or shock.

If any level of burn is from a chemical, rinsing for a long time with lots of water is needed before other first aid handling.

(1) Cold Water

This may be the first thing to do before anything else. If practical, soaking the burn in water with a few ice cubes provides immediate relief. Do not put ice directly on a burn. It may be necessary to use ice for removing dried wax or tar at first, but otherwise ice is too much of a shock for the damaged skin. Just use the ice to keep the water really cold for as long as possible, until the pain subsides. Sometimes running water on the burn is helpful and quicker to utilize. The constant flow keeps the water from warming up and literally moves the heat away.

(2) Vinegar

This seems counterintuitive, but plain vinegar, especially if it's cold out of the fridge, was a sunburn remedy for taking out the sting and healing quickly with native Floridians for years. For a more serious first degree burn and even some second degree burns, it's recommended that a compress soaked in vinegar and water be placed over the burn. It seems the pH factor of vinegar helps heal burns faster.

(3) Lavender

Pure unadulterated lavender essential oil is used both for pain relief and faster healing. Lavender is even used in some hospitals for burns. It's good to use for second degree burns as well as first degree burns. Lavender can eliminate infections due to its natural antibiotic qualities. It can be used for pain relief as well as healing, but you can get more immediate relief from the pain with cold water and then a spray of some therapeutic grade lavender oil on the area.

(4) Aloe Vera

Great for healing first and second degree burns. Aloe Vera should be applied after most of the pain is handled. It's best to use it fresh from the plant's leaves. Simply peel part of a leaf to expose the gooey part and rub that on the burn. There are some commercially sold Aloe Vera gels, but one has to make sure they are not adulterated in any way.

(5) Noni Juice

Though not well known, Noni Juice applied directly to burns has a successful anecdotal history. It's effective if you can get freshly squeezed Noni juice instead of the reconstituted stuff multi-level groups promote. Noni juice has historically demonstrated powerful healing properties with topical applications on burns in the Pacific Islands.

All of these first aid remedies can all be easily stored in your kitchen.
