Poison Oak Spray
by Sue Sierralupe
My daughter and I share a well-honed talent for seeking out poison oak. Over the years, we have tried many remedies for keeping the rash from itching and spreading. This blend works the best. It is always best to be proactive but Poison Oak Spray does the job when the symptoms have gotten away from us. Just a little goes a long way with this formula. The symptoms should disappear within 24 -48 hours with regular use.
After the rash has stopped itching, swelling and spreading, promote healing with First Aid Salve.
Instructions for making your own comfrey tincture are also available on this site.
