Aloe Vera Ice Cubes – the Perfect Solution for Minor Burns
Whether you’re spending a day in the sun or cooking something up in the kitchen, there’s always a chance of a burn. Not only are burns painful, they can also put you at risk for scarring. Aloe vera gel on its own is a great natural solution for minor burns, but we’ve got an even better idea: aloe vera ice cubes. With a few of these little guys in your freezer, you’ll have a fast way to relieve all of life’s little burns.
The Benefits of Aloe Vera Ice Cubes
Aloe vera is a perfect choice for anyone looking to treat minor burns naturally. Research into why aloe vera is so effective for burns is still ongoing, but some of the early results are really interesting. Your skin is filled with small blood vessels, which provide your body’s biggest organ with the nutrients it needs to heal. Aloe vera contains chemicals that help increase circulation in those vessels, which helps speed up healing. Aloe also has antimicrobial properties, which means that it helps prevent burns and cuts from becoming infected. The very best part, though, is that applying aloe vera to minor burns is incredibly soothing.
Aloe vera ice cubes take the soothing effects of aloe vera to the next level. Not only do these cubes help speed healing and soothe away the sting, they also draw heat away from burned skin. This helps relieve the burn’s sting even faster. Frozen aloe vera is an especially great choice for kids, who will love playing with these soothing, green blocks of ice.
Making Aloe Vera Ice Cubes
Another benefit to aloe vera cubes? They’re incredibly easy to make. Grab a bottle of Nature’s Daughter’s Aloe Vera Gel and a clean ice cube tray. Fill each cube about three quarters of the way with aloe vera gel, then put it in the freezer. A few hours later your gel will be completely frozen. If you’re making these cubes for your kids, consider using a tray that makes ice cubes in fun shapes. Keep a tray of aloe vera cubes in the freezer for cooking burns. If you’re taking a trip to the beach, keep a few cubes in your cooler for fast relief from too much sun.
When Not to use Aloe Vera Ice Cubes
Aloe vera cubes are perfect for soothing minor cooking and sun burns. Burns that are more severe (burns which lead to blistering) require additional attention. If you’re suffering from a serious burn, skip the aloe vera cubes and find medical attention.
Aloe vera ice cubes are an easy, fast, and fun way to soothe away mild burns. They’re easy to make and keep on hand, and they’re great for your skin. Keep some in your freezer: you might be surprised by just how handy they can be.
