Jewelweed has been used for centuries due to its healing and soothing properties. This plant is known to sooth skin irritations such as poison ivy, poison oak/sumac, nettles, and other skin irritants.
Along side of the Jewelweed, we have infused grapeseed oil with Plantain. This common "weed" has quite the long history from a scene in Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.
Romeo: Your Plantain leaf is excellent for that.
Benvoleo: For what, I pray thee?
Romeo: For your broken shin.
- William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet, Act I, Scene II
Plantain is known to be effective on stings, cuts, and scrapes. It is also known to soothe and cool poison ivy, nettles, and sunburn.
Our Ivy Balm is available in unscented for those with sensitive skin, or scented with Peppermint essential oil. Peppermint essential oil is known for its cooling properties.
