Healing Burns with Egg Whites

Next time you or someone you know has a burn, try egg whites for natural healing.


There has been lots of evidence lately that egg whites have intensive healing qualities when it comes to burns. Below is a story I recently read about one man’s personal experience with using egg whites to prevent permanent scars from a burn.

“A young man sprinkling his lawn and bushes with pesticides wanted to check the contents of the barrel to see how much pesticide remained in it. He raised the cover and lit his lighter; the vapors inflamed and engulfed him. He ran about screaming.

His neighbor came out of her house with a dozen eggs, yelling to the other neighbors, “bring me some eggs!”

She broke the eggs, separating the whites from the yolks. A neighbor woman helped her to apply the whites on the young man’s face. When the ambulance arrived, and the EMT saw the young man, they asked who had done this.

Everyone pointed to the lady in charge.

They congratulated her and said, “You have saved his face”. By the end of the summer, the young man brought the lady a bouquet of flowers to thank her. His face was like a baby’s skin.”

I’m not sure about using this for major burns like the above story, but it’s definitely been shown to help with minor burns (smaller than the size of your palm), sun burns, etc.

First aid using egg whites consists of:

  • Spraying cold water on the affected area until the heat is reduced and stops burning the layers of skin
  • Spread egg whites on the affected area
  • The whites dry on the skin and form a protective layer
  • Continue to apply beaten egg whites to the burn
  • After a few days, the burned area will regenerate the skin thanks to the natural collagen in the egg whites, a placenta full of vitamins 

Have you ever tried this? Did it work for you? Let me know what you think.

Happy Easter! Hope this comes in handy for all of you with extra eggs in your fridge at the moment!
