MMA Starry!

I feel ya, sister!  I’ve got a bad case of poison ivy right now.  What’s been working for me is a homemade solution in addition to the OTC stuff (calamine, steroids, etc.).  I made an infusion of dandelion, curly dock & plantain leaves with some rubbing alcohol a couple of weeks ago.

Here are some pictures to identify them (which is essential when wildcrafting herbs!):

curly dock

ribwort/plantain

Hope that this helps!
