If you’re anything like me, you get poison ivy while out enjoying the great outdoors.

While it can take several days for some, I can usually tell within 6 hours after exposure.
I have struggled with this for years, and have finally found some relief, and of the natural way! Join me as I show you how to make plantain salve, a natural poison ivy relief aid.
