Sodium Bentonite Clay will always be the most amazing option for treating this rash because it draws the plants oils out of your skin thus eliminating the cause of the rash and not just covering up the symptoms.

Jewelweed has been used for centuries by Native Americans to sooth and treat Poison Ivy rash and often grows symbiotically by Poison Ivy.
Directions: Mix clay with filtered water until clay falls easily off of the spoon. Avoid using metal when mixing since metal decreases the clays pulling ability. Apply a thick layer to rash, let dry and wash off with cool water, never warm or hot as this can spread the plants oil or open your pores and absorb the oil deeper. For severe cases apply clay, cover with gauze and keep damp, leave for at least 45 minutes up to 3 hours, then repeat if necessary. This is only needed for the most severe of cases.
