The supreme herb for poison ivy is jewelweed, which grows in moist areas much loved by poison ivy itself. If you know you have poison ivy around, and you can find jewelweed, this is the lotion to have on hand.

Jewelweed can prevent poison ivy, if applied within 4 hours of exposure to the plant. Or you can rub it on affected areas to relieve the symptoms after you already have poison ivy.

To make the lotion, get a bunch of jewelweed and put in a pot. Add water to cover, and simmer for about 30 minutes. Since jewelweed doesn't keep very well, you'll want to strain off the herb, pour the jewelweed decoction into ice cube trays, and freeze. Store jewelweed cubes in freezer bags in your freezer, and use as needed either as a preventative or treatment.
