An herbalist friend recommended this remedy to me years ago when I suffered from a weepy, oozy, tear-your-skin-off case of poison ivy, A.D.H.D.tried every remedy in the books to no avail.
This one worked. Oh the blessed relief!
Since then, I’ve found it to be terrifically effective against mosquito bites, flea bites, and other summer itchies, too.
Osha Root Tincture (which may be ordered online or found in your local natural foods store) is the best remedy for allergic reactions caused by poison ivy and bug bites EVER.
Simply apply tincture directly, and sparingly, to the affected area and allow to dry.
To learn more about weeds and health, see Susun Weed’s groundbreaking “Healing Wise” (Ash Tree Publishing, 1989).
If Osha is unavailable, here is another helpful itch treatment:
Cosmetic-grade Clay mixed with water to make a paste, applied liberally to the affected area, and allowed to dry.
