Poison Ivy and the Jewelweed cure

Hoosier Gal

Hey - just wanted others to know this is a great remedy. When my sis and I were

in our teens, we read about this in a Euell Gibbions book. She was terribly

alergic to poison ivy...the next time she encountered a patch and began to react

- we gathered the weed, made the tea and applied with success. We made ice

cubes with the remaining tea to have on stand by!
