|Here I am a little sun-kissed, with my first burn of the summer! :)|
|This was a few weeks ago, so I haven't actually gotten to try this new "remedy," but wondered if anyone else has ever used black tea leaves to help heal a burn?|
I think good 'ol pinterest brought me the idea. You can link to the instructable here or my pin here.
Best I can tell, you brew three large tea bags (they used earl gray, but in the comment section, people reported using Lipton and got positive results) in warm water in a pitcher until it's black.
Then, once the water has cooled to a warm/lukewarm temp, you douse a towel that you don't mind staining and dab your burn. They suggest doing it as soon as possible for maximum affect. You don't rub off the tea, but leave it on. When it dries, put on more and more coats
If I get a chance to try it, I will definitely report back! If you have or do try this, let me know how it goes! :)
