I’m starting a series on the benefits of Aloe Vera. I’ve come to study these benefits more and more lately. Since the benefits are so numerous, I make it my mission to share as much info as possible. I hope you will benefit from this advice.
Since health is such an important topic nowadays, I’m including new health packages in my coaching programs. Which is a very logical step to me: I can help people mentally and emotionally but if the physical aspect is not wel, then the mental effects won’t last for long. In order to feel good & thrive, you need the whole of you to be at its best: the mental you, emotional you, physical you and spiritual you.
If you want all the tips and tricks as well as access to high quality products, I suggest you join my FB Group where I share tips several times a week. You can join this group for free by clicking here.
Today, I want to talk to you about a very important organ. One we tend to neglect (which was my case for a long time) or to feed the wrong (toxic) things: THE SKIN.
The skin is the largest organ in the human body with an area of almost 2 m². It is made up of three layers which each play specific functions. This is also the part of the body that is exposed to the sun, and as a result gets burnt. But also scratched, stung by insects, burnt at the stove or a candle, attacked by environmental toxins, etc.
It is therefore important to learn more about it and to look for ways to deal with it.
Since aloe vera is a versatile remedy, we will look at its possibility of curing burned skin.
The skin is an organ made up of several layers of tissue. It plays, among other things, the role of protective envelope of the body.
The different layers of the skin are:
- the epidermis
- the dermis
- the hypodermis
Skin burns are lesions that can be caused in different ways. They affect either the epidermis, the dermis or the hypodermis depending on the severity of the situation.
The burn is a superficial or deep destruction of the body envelope. It occurs when the skin comes into contact with a heat source.
We often describe burns according to the degree of severity:
- 1st degree burn
We will talk about 1st degree burn when it only affects the epidermis. Thus, one can notice a change in skin color to a reddish coloration.
- 2nd degree burn
It will be a 2nd degree burn if the epidermis is destroyed and the dermis affected. In this case, we notice the appearance of a blister or blister which shows a detachment of the two areas.
Thus, the sensation of pain increases at this stage since the nerve endings are exposed.
- 3rd degree burn
When faced with a destruction of the first two layers, it is called a 3rd degree burn, which corresponds to a complete destruction of the skin down to the fat. At this point, the victim may not feel pain, and the bottom of the burn may turn white. The skin is stiff like cardboard.
In addition, the hairs are burnt and can be easily pulled out since they were attached to the destroyed dermis.
Burn: natural remedies and treatments.
Several natural treatments can heal skin burns, especially 1st and 2nd degree burns.
To calm a burn, we often first resort to cool water which will slow down the continuing burning process.
It consists of applying a quantity of water at a temperature of 15 ° C to the burnt area for 15 minutes.
This is repeated until the burn is no longer painful.
LAVENDER Essential OIL
We can also use lavender, one of my personal favourites. When you don’t treat a burn, the burning often continues after the accident into the deeper layers of the skin. That’s why we favour cold water and lavender, because these will halt the burning process and prevent it from continuing to inflame the underlying skin.
Lavender essential oil has also analgesic and healing properties.
This is ideal for pain relief and for speeding up the healing process of the burnt area. It is also recognised as having an antibacterial function which helps protect the wound from potential infection.
ST. JOHN’S WORTH
Burns to the skin can also be treated with St. John’s Wort oil. This is recommended to reduce pain caused by sunburn.
However, after application, do not expose the affected area for 24 hours, since the oil is photosensitising. It is also not recommended for people with epilepsy.
Another natural remedy used to treat a burn is curcumin gel.
This molecule from turmeric has an inhibitory effect on Phosphorylase Kinase (PhK). It plays an essential role in the treatment of injuries. Applying this gel to the wound will help reduce pain and inflammation. In our family, we add turmeric to almost all of our dishes and soups, as it has super anti-inflammatory powers. Since I’m prone to inflammation, turmeric helps me balance my system in order to reduce inflammations, such as joint pains.
How to soothe a burn on the skin with aloe vera?
Aloe vera is a plant that has a multitude of virtues. It is one of the best natural treatments available for treating burn injuries.
Aloe vera is a plant species 60 to 80 cm tall made up of leaves and shallow roots. Green in color, its waterlogged leaves are shaped like a triangle.
Their cross section shows first the layer called the cuticle, then the sap and finally the mucilage.
Note that it is in the sap (also called latex) that we find aloin. The mucilage, on the other hand, is a pulp without colouring with a significant thickness.
Regarding the composition of the pulp, there are more than 200 active ingredients.
Among them are:
- 9 vitamins: A, B1, B2, B3, B6, B9, B12, C, E.
- Several minerals and trace elements: calcium, copper, phosphorus …
(These are agents that facilitate the development of skin cells.)
Aloe vera pulp also contains:
– almost all of the existing amino acids (which cannot be synthesized by the human body).
Thanks to this constitution, the aloe vera gel has many beneficial actions for the skin. In particular, it allows:
- The good progress of certain biological reactions.
- Reduction of inflammation on the body.
- The reduction of premature aging.
- The acceleration of the healing process.
It also improves digestion by facilitating the absorption of water and nutrients from the intestinal organs.
Skin burn: the benefits of aloe vera.
Aloe vera is the most complete remedy for skin burns
Due to its anti-inflammatory effects, it automatically reduces the pain of the injury. It accelerates its healing and gives real relief to the burnt person.
When aloe vera is applied to the skin, it helps hydrate the upper surface (epidermis) of the skin. It allows the latter to better retain water by increasing the capacity of its natural shield, the hydrolipidic film.
Thanks to its polysaccharides, aloe vera acts on the cells responsible for the synthesis of collagen and elastin. This action combined with that of its vitamins plays an antioxidant role which slows down the process of skin aging.
In addition, the acemannan contained in the mucilage increases the repair skills of skin tissue. Added to this is immunity against bacteria.
Thus, aloe vera will be used for:
- Eliminate congestions caused by blunt skin burns.
- Decrease the pain felt in the event of a sudden collision or irritation.
- Soothe slight lesions due to an object, an insect bite …
In view of all its virtues, aloe vera is therefore the treatment par excellence against skin burns 💚
Symbolism of the burns
“Aches in the body are the words of the soul. THUS, ONE MUST NOT SEEK TO HEAL THE BODY WITHOUT SEEKING TO HEAL THE SOUL”
Plato (427-347 BC)
Illness always has a significance
Know that all the ailments you suffer from have an origin.
These can be related to physical traits or to the influence of the mind on the body. In the first case, the discomfort arises from excessive use of one element or the absence of something. We can cite as an example the sun or vitamins.
On the other hand in the second case, the disease is caused by negative emotions. To treat ourselves, we will have to read and interpret the various messages of our body in order to adopt the appropriate solution.
ILLNESS EXPRESSES, INFORMS… IT IS THE VOICE OF THE UNCONSCIOUS.
Psychosomatic significance of the skin:
Generally speaking, the skin represents protection, contact, touch, receptivity, separation and communication.
A skin problem is related to your contact with the outside world, with others. It will express your desire as much as your fear or rejection of the other.
An epidermal problem reflects separation conflicts such as departures, losses, bereavements, or a separation with your spouse that is going badly.
The dermis is linked to conflicts of shame, humiliation or defilement.
The hypodermis reflects conflicts of devaluation, and more particularly aesthetic, such as feeling too fat or too thin, judging yourself on your physical appearance …
Psychosomatic significance of the burn:
As a consequence of the burn, an injury to the skin in the true sense comes from a physical source such as extreme heat or cold.
The body envelope – the skin – is the barrier that separates your inner galaxy from everything around you.
You are tormented (“burned”) by something. This is a feeling, a tremendous pain, dark and strong (grief, fear …) that you have buried deep inside.
These emotions keep you dejected to the point where you end up seeing them as self-retribution (burn).
A lesion can affect several stages of the skin, starting from the flesh to the bones. It can also relate to different areas of the human body.
Examine the area affected by the burn.
When it comes to the upper limbs, you might say it’s because you feel at fault in a matter. Also, it could be justified by my stubbornness in front of a situation or a person.
When the lower limbs are in play, the burn sets out your next guidelines. It heralds a fear that you may experience when you come into contact with someone else or a new event.
This is also because you are afraid of not being able to carry out your plans.
Added to this is the excessive urge to be closer to your lover. At the same time, it implies that you want to have fun with the flame at a certain point in your life. For this, you must pull yourself together and be attentive to all your actions.
Likewise, you can analyze the causative agents of the burn. If these are hot water, fumes … then the lesion reveals a brutal emotional sensation. On the other hand, a burn by solid products involves an aggression on the psychological and metaphysical levels.
In the case of minor injuries, you must adopt certain attitudes. For example, focus more on the present moment. In addition, you must avoid putting yourself on several fronts at the same time by unnecessarily spending your energies …
Deep burns are manifestations of stronger and more destructive emotional reactions. Thus, you experience a burning sensation caused by a third person or a situation. It may be related to a past event that has stagnated deep inside you or to a current situation.
You then feel deprived of your freedom, and you point the finger at others as being responsible. However, the problem is not at their level. Rather, it is up to you to become aware of your condition and to show yourself as you are.
There are also varying levels of burns. They are classified according to the depth of the damage created on the skin.
– 1st degree burns involving the epidermis show the state of confusion, of sadness in which you find yourself.
– 2nd degree burns relate more to the pain related to your obstacle course that you consider essential.
– Third degree burns involve more injury and pain because of their greater depth. They reveal in this case a constant anger and aggressiveness that destroy your protections and expose you to negative waves.
The same is true for severe burns.
However, through the intermediary of divine qualities (forgiveness, love, charity, respect …), we can perfectly remedy these emotional burns.
Resolve to spread love (positive vibes) while stopping focusing only on the problems in your life. You must therefore remain optimistic in difficult times in order to properly learn from these experiences.
Therefore, you can heal your burnt body and mind through this heart-centered insertion process.

I hope this article was helpful to you. More articles of the sort, linked to Aloe and other plants will follow. The sources for this article come from Aloe expert Linda Michelin, who created Aloe Magazine.
For me these kind of treatments are of utmost importance. In holistic healing we look at the whole picture. We will treat the physical aspect with natural products, but we will also look at underlying causes, psychosomatic meaning, mental activity, etc.
A lot of people have recovered completely of a severe disease by treating it as a whole and going through the process of self-development, growth, letting go of past traumas and pardon.
