Jewelweed: A Natural Antidote to Poison Ivy

Jewelweed sap is a natural antidote to poison ivy and is often found in similar environments, so if you find yourself brushing up against poison ivy don’t run to the drugstore. Quickly look around for some jewelweed. The sooner you apply the jewelweed juice the better chance you have of avoiding the rash. Just mash it up into a poultice and apply it to the affected area. The jewelweed sap is believed to neutralize the rash producing oils of poison ivy. It’s soothing to the skin. My kids seem to like it.
