    Poison Ivy itch comes from the oily substance urushiol! You want to neutralize this! In most places where Poison Ivy (and often, Poison Oak) grows, a native plant Jewelweed also grows! This plant is mostly water, hollow-stemmed and easy to recognize!Grab a large stalk of Jewlweed and crumple it up, capturing the juices it releases and smooth this onto your affected skin! It quickly neutralizes the urushiol of the Poison Ivy!You can find Jewelweed in shady places, often next to rivers and ponds, and it is often found in the same places that Poison Ivy grows (but not always, as Poison Ivy can grow in well-drained sunny places that prohibit Jewelweed from thriving!)Jewelweed is also effective for insect bits, bee stings, warts, bruises, and ringworm and there are studies ongoing that seem to support these folkloric claims as well!

    Dab on poison ivy regularly. It stops the itching, and helps dry it up quickly and thus helps it clear up sooner than just waiting on it or using calamine lotion.
