Jewelweed may be used on its own for single topical application, or in combination with other infused oils such as Plaintain Infused Oil to get immediate relief for poison ivy, poison oak, and sumac skin rashes. The compounds in the Jewelweed work by neutralizing the urushiol oil (from poison ivy) that bonds to the proteins in the skin, causing the rash reaction.
Apply 3 times in an 8 hour period with a sterile cloth or cotton ball, saturating the rash area.How to Make Easy, Effective Topical Salves:
