recommeded use: Apply 1-2 dropperfuls to affected skin as often as needed.
Jewelweed: Jewelweed’s brilliant orange flowers can be seen dancing atop its moist, succulent stem in late summer. A classic remedy for poison ivy, the two can often be found growing close by, pointing to its affinity for neutralizing itchy, inflamed skin conditions. Rubbing a fresh plant over the skin offers immediate relief for a variety of skin upsets such as bug bites, eczema, rashes and sunburn.
Plantain: The humble plantain is a common companion in most places people tread, and offers us potent medicine if we can remember to pay attention. Cool and moist, the leaves are excellent to soothe inflamed, irritated skin conditions, poison ivy rashes, bug bites and stings. It also helps to speed wound healing when used on the skin. Taken internally, it heals irritation and inflammation of the mucous membranes in the digestive, respiratory and urinary tract.
Chickweed: Commonly enjoyed in the spring as a mineral-rich wild food, chickweed is a wonderful ally to soothe and heal itchy, dry and irritated skin. Its moist, cooling nature brings comfort to burns, rashes, eczema and hives.
