Have you had an unplanned rendezvous with poison ivy, oak or sumac, and now the urge to itch is irresistible?Three dramatically effective herbs halt itching and discomfort, prevent the rash from spreading and restore your skin to normal. Ivy Itch ReLeaf® features extracts of FRESH (never dried) Jewel Weed, Grindelia and Plantain. Only FRESH extracts contain the constituents to achieve results.
Can you recognize these three common plants that STOP the itching from poison ivy or poison oak? These saviors are almost certainly growing somewhere along your hiking trail, so it pays to learn to recognize them.
Jewel Weed: Find Jewel Weed east of the Rockies and in some areas in the Northwest. Break the stem and repeatedly apply the juice to affected skin areas. Google “how to use Jewel Weed” and you’ll find great pictures of this helpful plant in all its growing stages.
Grindelia: Grindelia likes to grow in sunny locations. The flowers are very sticky and have a strong medicinal fragrance. Pick a flower and rub it on rashes for quick relief. It’s also effective for the discomfort of insect bites.
Plantain: You’ll find this herb in almost any moist meadow. If you come across Plantain on your hike, pick a leaf or two to keep in your pocket in case you need it later. To use, chew slightly to activate its properties, and apply to affected skin areas.
