I bought your jewelweed soap at the end of April, and have just had the chance to truly test it out...thought I'd let you know how it went.

I live and work at an outdoor center in central Indiana, and am pretty allergic to poison ivy. In the past four years here, I have needed to go on steroids once a year to get rid of it (once it gets in your eyes and ears, there's just not much of a choice), though my preference is always to locate some nearby jewelweed to rub into it a few times a day. And let me tell you, I get poison ivy a lot.
Last weekend, I got a call to check on a fawn that was thought to perhaps be abandoned. Unsurprisingly, I had to make my way through A LOT of poison ivy to get close to the little one. Being my day off, I was a bit unprepared, and went through the stuff in a sundress and sandals...we're talking poison ivy brushing against my feet, legs, was everywhere.
As soon as I got home, I jumped in a cold shower with my jewelweed soap (and is it bad that I was a little excited to try it out?) and scrubbed away. I'm happy to report that not only did mom return for the fawn that afternoon, but I never saw a spot from the poison ivy! Couldn't believe how well it worked! I've cut a few pieces off my bar to carry in my first aid kit, keep in the office, etc.

I love your soaps in general and am absolutely thrilled with the jewelweed. Here's hoping I can stay away from the steroids this summer! :)

Thank you,

I want to say Thank you! I am HIGHLY allergic to poison ivy and oak. We purchased a property in the recent months and are trying to get it cleaned up for homesteading. Well it is covered in the lovely stuff green poisonous stuff and I think its trying to kill me. No kidding. I have been covered in blisters and rashes just from looking at the stuff. I ordered a travel size of you jewelweed soap as a recommendation from my Mom. It has saved me! I scrub thoroughly with it (even my hair) after working outside and have yet to have a reaction like before. I may get a hit or miss spot but nothing that can compare to the agony that has been bestowed upon me in the past several months! Ordering a bar this time and will probably do so each month until I can afford a truck load of the stuff! Again tremendous thanks for a wonderful product! PS.. You have a wonderful family :)

I bought this after my daughter got poison ivy on her leg & foot after going in the woods during a weekend with her dad. I wish I had gotten this for a "just in case" situation because she was completely MISERABLE when her rash was still fresh. Prior to getting this in the mail, I used a homeopathic poison ivy scrub that washes off the oil which causes the rash - which she screamed every time I used it because she said it made her rash itch since it is a scrub. The Jewelweed soap she doesn't mind at all, she actually asks me "which one are you using - the bumpy one or the goat milk soap?" =) Thank goodness her rash in now dried out and soon she'll only have the scars of the poison ivy rash left. I will def keep this in stock from now on...I never know what she'll get into when she's not with me.

WE love your jewelweed soap. My daughter and her husband bought an old farm the year before they got married. It had been vacant and was very overgrown. My daughter got into poisonivy---a severe case. I found your soap and now after they work in a new area they wash with it to be safe and have never had another case of poison ivy.

Holy cow, this stuff is AMAZING! I purchased it on a lark, to be frank, and didn't expect it to sooth rashes or prevent poison ivy. I was 100% wrong! After working in the yard pulling up the awful stuff, I wash with this and have been reaction-free, even when I know that I've come into direct contact with it. This is now my "summer soap"--I won't wash with anything else after being in my yard!

I love this soap. I am extremely allergic to poison ivy and it really helps take care of the itchies! Also makes you feel better after an evening in the garden and lots of mosquito bites.

This customer purchased the item at our site.
We ordered the jewelweed soap after my husband was suffering with poison ivy rash all over his body. Within a day of using the soap, his itching stopped and within three days the red welts were gone (he also used the jewelweed salve from GMS). In the past, he has suffered with the rash for weeks! He now insists that we keep a stock of this on hand and that we keep one in the shower all summer for use any time we've worked in the yard. With this soap, we haven't had another outbreak of poison ivy rash, which is amazing because our property is a shady haven for the wretched plant.

I am highly allergic to poison ivy and get it on my arms and hands from my horse and cat. They roam in wooded areas where there is lots of it. I haven't had an episode with breakouts since using Jewelweed soap after touching them....which is every day. Thank you so much. My husband also baths with it after mowing etc. He is allergic too and has not had one breakout. I can't thank you enough. I will be ordering more today.

I haven't used it for poison ivy but it works wonderful for the irritation I get from working in the tomatoes. Also my granddaughter broke out from handling our cat and she washed her arms with this and the itch and swelling went away.

This product for poison-ivy WORKS. Cleared the deck of weeds, contracted poison-ivy all over my body. It was so bad I left work, bleeding, and went to see a Dr. I had a fever, too, due to infection. I also had it in my throat. (Worst-case-scenerio!) Received three different medications. All pills to be taken. After three days, I had to stop the meds due to side-effects. My poison-ivy HAD gotten better, so it seemed I was on my way to getting over it, but no. The itching returned even though the rash and oozing was dramatically improving. I wasn't going to start taking the meds again, wise move or not, so purchased a $40.00 + change 1-0z. tube of a homeopathic poison-ivy scrub from a local drug store that still did not even ease the itching. Then, I found this product online. I used the soap as soon as it arrived; and I can tell you it gave me immediate relief. I am still using it with each shower. It works!! Whatever jewelweed is... it really works! The soap even lathers great. THANK-YOU!
