This is a convenient, oil version of our popular Jewelweed Salve!
Nature's antidote to poison ivy! Compounds in the juice found in the stem and leaves of the Jewelweed plant help counteract the chemical urushiol that causes itch and inflammation when you come into contact with poison ivy. This jewelweed-infused oil helps relieve the itch and burn from poison ivy, poison oak, poison sumac and stinging nettle as well as mosquito bites and bee stings. Tea tree helps stave off infection while peppermint cools and soothes.
Packaged in a 10 ml amber glass roller ball vial.
Directions: Roll directly onto the bite, sting or burn. For poison ivy rash, be sure to first wash the area with soap and water, preferably a very drying soap, to remove the urushiol oil.
Ingredients: Organic olive oil, organic sunflower oil, wildcrafted jewelweed, organic peppermint essential oil, tea tree essential oil
