With summer upon us poison ivy is always an issue, here are 2 recipes you may find helpful.
What you will need:
2 Tablespoons Distilled Water
2 Tablespoons Natural Apple Cider Vinegar, with the mother
1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
3 drops Lavender or Lavender Population Essential Oil (for itch)
3 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil (antiseptic)
3 drops Peppermint Essential Oil (soothing menthol)
Mix everything together, making sure the salt dissolves. Dab the mixture onto the affected area as needed. Keep stored in the refrigerator and stir well before each use.
**The vinegar works best when cold, plus, it felt REALLY good putting a cool, soothing cotton ball over my irritated skin.
**The kosher salt created a “film” over my rash which I believed helped dry up the blisters so quickly.
**You can tell when you need to re-apply because you no longer feel that salty film that is left behind from each application.
