A poison ivy plant contains one of the deadliest natural toxins in the world known as urushiol. When you touch it, your skin becomes irritated with painful blisters, burning sensations, and an overwhelming itchiness. These symptoms can show up within a few hours or few days of contact with the poison. Although this harmful plant is found naturally, there are also many natural remedies for poison ivy.
Baking soda is a miracle worker that is probably sitting somewhere in your kitchen. It will help relieve the itchiness associated with the rash. All you have to do is pour a half cup of baking soda into a warm bath. If you want to make a paste, simply mix three teaspoons of baking soda with one teaspoon of water.
