Why this works: The Clay mixture pulls the poison ivy oils from the pores thereby drying up the infection very quickly. Adding the apple cider vinegar and colloidal silver prevents infection. The Peppermint oil acts as a pain reliever and the lavender calms and soothes the skin thereby relieving the itch.

  1. Do you feel like this heals and shortens the rash time compared to other options like baking soda and calamine? Or is it a more natural way where you know the ingridients?

  2. The link in your recipe takes me to aloe Vera gel. What is aloe Vera cream? I made this without using it and my husband swears it’s the best remedy for poison ivy he’s ever found. Thank you for sharing!!

    1. Hi, Sarah! I edited the post – the text originally said “Aloe Vera Cream” when the link actually leads to the right product – “Aloe Vera Liquid.” I just wanted to make sure that no one tried to use Aloe Vera “GEL” because you want to use as pure of a product as possible. The Aloe Vera Liquid linked to within this post is truly the best. It’s runny and mixes well and has very little “other” ingredients besides the real aloe itself. 🙂
