Poison Ivy natural remedy

If you accidentally touch poison ivy and apply jewelweed juice to the affected area before the rash appears, you probably won't get the rash.

The Indians treat already-developed poison ivy rash by rubbing jewelweedís broken stem on the rash until it draws some blood. The rash then dries out, a scab forms, and healing occurs. http://www.wildmanstevebrill.com/Plants.Folder/Jewelweed.html

When exposed to poison ivy, poison oak or stinging nettle, the best thing to do is to immediately take a jewelweed plant, slice the stem open, and rub it directly on the exposed parts of the skin. This prompt action will often be enough to prevent a reaction entirely, and at the very least will offer significant symptom relief.

I also use plantain, which is easier to find, to stop the itch of rashes and bug bites.
