Aloe. Not some shitty lotion either, just chop a piece off.

Petroleum Jelly helps too. The key is to keep it moist and protected so new skin will grow faster.

Lavender essential oil is good with burns.

I hear that oregano oil is very good for burns.

Honey, nothing in the world helps like honey.

From what I’ve heard, it was used a long time back to prevent oxygen from getting to aerobic bacteria on a wound, basically smothering the critters while supplying nourishment for the skin. Hope that helps, Chodehoffen has a point too, fresh aloe from the plant feels great.
