Poison Ivy, Poison Oak – Jewelweed
Relieves the Itch & Stops the Spread!
Mother Nature almost always has a solution for things that can irritate us.
If you have ever had an encounter with Poison Ivy or Poison Oak, you know what misery it can cause! And if left untreated, there is the possibility of it spreading and even causing internal problems. Most people treat poison ivy with over-the-counter medications or Dr.’s prescriptions which usually gives some relief over time. However, besides costing a lot it generally doesn’t address the real problem, which is a substance called Urushiol, which causes the reaction in the first place. Did you know there is a plant that can do that?
Jewelweed neutralizes Poison Ivy
Jewelweed totally neutralizes the Poison Ivy’s oily antigen called Urushiol, which relieves the itch and you will no longer spread it by scratching or rubbing.
The Urushiol oil may be carried on the fur of pets, clothing, shoes, toys, tools, or other objects and then transferred to the skin.
Approximately 24 to 36 hrs after a sensitized person is exposed to the Urushiol, a blistery, itching rash develops. Usually within 15 minutes of contact, the Urushiol binds to skin proteins. If it is washed off with soap and water before that time, a reaction may be prevented. After the antigen is fixed, however, it cannot be washed off.
Jewelweed Spray before for protection
Use Hummingbird’s Jewelweed Spray on exposed skin before gardening or encounters with nature. This puts a protective barrier on the skin that allows more time to wash off the Urushiol oil and prevents itching and spreading.
Jewelweed Salve for relief
Use Hummingbird’s Jewelweed Salve if an itchy rash or blisters develop to stop the spread, relieve the itching, speed the healing process and help prevent scarring.
Jewelweed is still quite helpful even if you have developed scabs, although you need to rub it in longer, and it takes time for the blisters to heal.
Hummingbird’s Jewelweed is an effective natural herbal remedy not only for poison ivy, but also for poison oak, okra spines, stinging nettle, and other irritating plants; as well as bug bites and razor burn. Jewel Weed is also effective for acne, heat rash, ringworm and many other skin disorders.
