Mustard Helps Heal Minor Burns

Mustard helps heal minor burns by reducing inflammation, which means less pain and a quicker healing process…

Did you forget to grab a pot holder when you were checking to see if your casserole was hot? And it was hot! For a minor burn (that is, the type that smarts but doesn’t blister), dab a bit of mustard on it to naturally alleviate the pain. Mustard’s secret? According to friends of the National Mustard Museum, it’s the anti-inflammatory qualities of mustard’s yellow ingredient, turmeric.

Place a dab of mustard on the wound and let it sit for a few minutes. Then rinse and reapply until the pain has subsided.
