After suffering for years from poison oak and being unable to find a cure that really worked, Marie, a medicinal herbalist for 35 years, settled down to formulate her own solution. Her 100% natural soap formula, handmade on her 40-acre organic farm in Oregon, proved to be so successful that she soon began selling it to her local hardware and landscape supply stores. It wasn't long before the word was out: Marie's Original Poison Ivy/Poison Oak Soap really works!
About Poison Ivy/Poison Oak Soap
The Native American Indians were puzzled about the cause of the rash many European visitors were getting. This is because they cooked, dyed clothes and decorated with poison ivy/oak branches and leaves. Poison ivy/oak is not toxic or poisonous but the oil contained in the plant has the ability to penetrate the 5 - 8 layers of the skin and bind with our natural body fluids, causing a severe histamine reaction. All of the itching, weeping, swelling and pain are from our own body's defense system working to get this oil out from under the skin. For someone sensitive to the oil, one fifty thousandth of a drop is enough to cause a major reaction. Marie's Original Poison Oak Soap removes the oil from the skin and helps calm down the reaction of the body.
How to Use Poison Ivy/Poison Oak Soap
For best results, wet skin with hot water, lather the poison ivy/oak soap and allow it to stay on the skin for a few minutes, then rinse with hot water. Do not use this product on broken skin without consulting a physician. If a rash has already started, it may be necessary to repeat use 3 - 4 times a day for a few days. If rash persists, the soap should be left on for an hour or even longer. It's important not to eat or drink stimulating foods or beverages while the poison ivy is running its course; i.e., items with caffeine or hot spices. Please keep in mind everyone reacts slightly differently to poison ivy and poison oak.
How does Marie's Original Poison Ivy/Poison Oak Soap Work?
Marie's Original Poison Ivy/Poison Oak Soap has a unique triple-acting formula>
1. Stops the Itch - Marie's Original Poison Ivy/Oak Soap contains Sassafras, a root bark that traditionally has a natural antihistamine action that immediately stops the itching.
2. Heals - Marie's Original Poison Ivy/Oak Soap contains Noni and White Willow; two herbs that traditionally help heal swelling, pain and irritation.
3. Prevents - The soap has a mechanical action. The green clay and organic oat bran pull any toxins or irritants that might be present off of the skin. This mechanical action stops the progression of the irritation.
