Now I'm going to show you how to treat burns in a natural way. When you get a burn, first of all what you need to do is you need to wash the place of the burn under the water for three to five minutes. The reason why you need to do it is to stop the burn from getting deeper into the skin. Once you finish with that, you dry your hands and now come the olive oil and the salt. What we do, we pour olive oil on the burn and then we take the salt and we put it on top. Just put it on top. If it's an open burn, you should see a doctor. But for other burns, I can tell you from experience that it helps. After you use it, a few minutes later the burn will stop. If you have a little blister, it will drain all the water out and you won't have scar later on. I can tell you from experience, my three year old got a burn and I put it on her face. She got a little burn from soup that spilled; a little burn on her face. Right away I washed her face, I put olive oil, and the salt and it disappeared. She doesn't have any marks today. So as I showed you how to treat burn with olive oil and salt.
