I got some poison ivy the other day while working in our backyard. How did I know it was hiding along the fence?! So I went in to find a quick fix and thought I would share with you.  It really worked!

I grabbed the Lemon essential oil (which can be found in the Bee Ready Kit) and put some on a cotton ball wiping it on the affected area and all around it to make sure I didn’t miss any that hadn’t showed up yet. I also used some fresh lemon and repeated when it started to itch again. Within two days it was gone and the lemon removed the itch completely. Having suffered for decades with acute sensitivity to poison ivy, I was ecstatic to find a remedy that worked!
