About Poison Ivy

Poison Ivy is a common weed that grows all over the world in areas where it is moist and sunny. Poison Ivy produces a natural oil called urushiol that will cause a painful reaction when it comes into contact with your skin. Urushiol is a black and water-resistant natural oil that is also found in poison oak and Japanese lacquer trees.


Poison Ivy is one of the more common skin flare-ups caused by plants.


Coconut Oil and Lavender Oil


The best oils for poison ivy are coconut oil and lavender oil. If you have been exposed to poison ivy, you might want to consider the following.


While the itchy, sore rash can be very unpleasant to look at and have on your body, you can use the following oils to help you get relief:


  • Coconut oil - Coconut oil contains a natural antibiotic and prevents fungal infections. It also moisturizes the skin, and it can be used for sunburns.
  • Lavender oil - Lavender oil is another good natural option. It has anti-inflammatory properties which can help reduce the sore and itchy feeling.


Cedar-wood Oil for Poison Ivy


There are many oils which can work, but one of the best that I've found is cedarwood oil. It's an all-encompassing oil, so I find that it works well for many different types of burns and skin irritations.


I will often use it on insect bites if I'm not sure what kind of bug bit me and I want to make sure I don't catch something. It also helps with skin breakouts.


The best way to take care of Poison Ivy with cedarwood oil is to fill a small spray bottle with water and mix in a few drops of cedarwood oil. Then spray the affected area.


Mixture of multiple essential oils for Poison Ivy


For those with dry skin, mix lavender and jojoba oil for a healing moisturizer or add a few drops of lavender to a cotton ball and wipe the affected areas with it. For those with an itchy rash, mix lemon, rosemary, thyme, cypress, and lavender or try peppermint tea (cooled) with a few drops of lavender mixed in. Mix these essential oils with your favorite lotion for an added soothing effect.
