“I don’t have snake oil handy right now, but I do know that calendula balm made with avocado oil and a bit of beeswax is amazing on burns. Burns from a hot pan or a bad sunburn, it will turn a painful injury into a mild one. It also works very well at reducing inflammation from bee stings and bug bites.
Downside is that depending on how extensive the sunburn is, you’ll have to look like you fell into a vat of vaseline for a day or so.”
