Since burns traumatize the skin, immune system, and the whole body, they must be treated immediately! The first few minutes are critical.
Most burns are unexpected, so it is important to have things close at hand that can turn the situation around, stop the effects of the burn, and heal the skin as quickly as possible.
Honey is one of the finest healers of the skin! Unless the patient is allergic to honey, apply it immediately on the skin to stop the burning, heal the skin, and prevent infection. It’s a little messy, but it works great! Certified Organic Honey is best for medicinal purposes.
Tovi (right, age 12) survived a potentially devastating burn at age 2.
Honey cured her burn in 20 minutes!
The Schiff Family had just made their microwave kosher with a cup of water. That cup of freshly boiled water was placed on the kitchen counter. Tovi, their granddaughter, suddenly, pulled the cup down on her neck and chest. She was screaming. Her parents immediately grabbed Tovi to put her into the bathwater, when they remembered that if one uses honey immediately, it is more efficient than water.
So they stopped, turned around and raced back to the kitchen. Tovi’s mother had the idea to distract her with a spoon of honey in her mouth. It worked. In the mean time, they spooned the honey onto the bright red areas.
After about 5 minutes, her parents asked her, “Does it hurt you?” She said, “It didn’t hurt.” Then they inquired, “so what happened?” “Was it hurting you before? She replied, “No.” “So you were just scared?” and her ever so sweet voice answered, “Yes.”
Tovi’s Dad added, ”The shock was not so much to the physical body, as the shock affected the soul.”
He witnessed the healing of the burned skin, as it lightened from its’ typical bright red color, to pink and then into stripes of pink and skin tone and finally it looked, simply normal. All in the record breaking time of 20 minutes. No bandages. No infections. No antibiotics. No hospital. No excruciating treatments. No skin grafts. No scars.
We are so thankful for this knowledge and thank our Creator. “Hodu La Hashem Ki Tov…Ki L’ Olam Chasdo!!”
Isn’t it amazing how bees create honey that have amazing healing powers?
