Description

Moisturizing extra virgin olive oil is infused with the flowers, leaves, stems, and scrubbed roots of jewelweed and combine with powerful, skin-mending tamanu oil.  

"Tamanu oil is a remarkable topical healing agent with skin healing, antineuralgic, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antibiotic, and antioxidant properties."- Mountain Rose Herbs

The beautiful Jewelweed plant with it's orange blossoms & touch-me-not seed pods is the go-to, all-natural remedy to cool and moisten poison ivy rash or any other itchy skin conditions you might suffer from! I harvest jewelweed annually late summer on our farm, prepare the juice, oil infusions, and dehydrate the leaves for using in herbal preparations and farmstead soaps. 

The jewelweed plant (also known as Touch-Me-Not) contains lawsone, an antihistamine and antifungal and balsaminones which help control the itch. Lawsone works to combat the itching because it binds to the same molecular site as the urushiol in poison ivy, poison oak, and poison sumac. Because of this, jewelweed is effective in combatting the inflammation caused by urushiol, the oil in poison ivy that causes the itchy rash. The sooner you use jewelweed the faster and better it works! In fact, you can use jewelweed on your skin before going into the woods to prevent the rash in the first place. 

I harvest all of the jewelweed plants by hand and leave plenty behind to continue to grow and spread. 

Jewelweed salve can also be used on bug bites and stings, contact with stinging nettle, dermatitis, and other itchy skin conditions.

Awesome Product

This helps with everything from bug bites to itchy rashes from working in the garden. I get burn like rashes from tomatoe plants and green plants and this helps soothe and heal it.
