That's exactly what my 80 year old lifelong Mainer neighbor recommended! ~amanda

Oh, this is what everyone else says and I so wish that were the case! I have doused myself in jewelweed showers practically to no avail. But isn't it amazing that it grows right near poison ivy and is the cure (for most)? That's amazing. ~amanda

(Admittedly, I was similarly smug about never having had it before. Harumph. This'll teach me!) The skirts are both thrifted jersey finds - one from Gap and the other Olive & Oak. Super comfy home skirts. ;) ~amanda

Yes! Thanks so much. We do have jewelweed growing and that was one of the first places I turned when the poison ivy hit. Sadly, it just didn't do it for me. Such a bummer! Limeade - sounds so yummy! ~amanda

I hear you! I am currently on my third round of prednisone - which was of course my last ditched effort (that still isn't over!). No fun at all. Thanks for the tip about Rhus Diversiloba - I'm going to do some more research about that. (And I'm sorry that you suffer too!) ~amanda

I did try sweet fern! ANd a million other things....to no avail. Ah. Apparently it's a rather bad case. But the mojitos - maybe I need to try that. ;) ~amanda

I've never heard of the pennies - thank you! That's so fascinating! And yes, our goats are on the poison ivy, but apparently I got into a patch I didn't know was there deeper in the woods where they do not roam. Such a bummer! ~amanda

Yes! They've eaten quite a bit of our poison ivy, but apparently not all of it. Sigh.... ~amanda

Yes, they're new trays! Stainless steel by Oxo. A bit pricey (I thought) but totally worth it to not use the silicone. ~amanda

I've heard of this but haven't been able to get access to it at this point. Thanks for the assurance that it's something worth pursuing though! ~amanda

I have lots of borage and love it! But I've never thought to combine the two for tea. I will be doing that now. Thank you! ~amanda
