“If you burn clothes when ironing, cover burn with cucumber slices”

We often find ourselves thinking of a million things at the same time. Life seems to have become too fast-paced. It’s so easy to forget something. As an example, one is sometimes in a hurry to get out of the house, leaving everything to the last minute as a result, and one might easily forget a hot electric iron on top of clothes. Rather than taking it out on oneself, what can one do in the circumstances?

In comments to  tvm.com.mt Joyce Muscat, an expert on essential oils, stated that one can quickly mitigate the burn by placing cucumber slices on it. Cucumber contains natural antioxidants which help in this situation.

Mrs Muscat explained that cucumbers are also anti-inflammatory, adding that one can use this remedy even in the case of sunburn, by placing the slices directly on the skin or preparing a mixture with it. A mixture which can include more beneficial ingredients for the skin, such as honey and aloe vera.
