Poision Ivy
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)
Directions:
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.

NOTES:
**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.
