Use P.I. Prevention Potion
Make Delicious Sassafras Tea
- Place 1 bundle roots in one quart of water, and bring to a boil for 5 minutes.
- You can now strain the tea, and drink as you like it.
- To make a second batch, lightly bruise roots with the back a knife to release oils, and full flavor.
- Then, place roots back in a quart of fresh, new water.
- Place cover back on pot, and boil for an additional 10-15 minutes.
- You can now strain the tea, and drink this second batch.
- If you want a third batch, add another quart of water to the roots and re-boil for 30-45 minutes.
- For each batch, most people add clover honey (or maple syrup, stevia, or sugar) to lightly sweeten tea.
- Remember, the tea is also delicious unsweetened, and hot or cold!
BEST USE: Spray within three hours of exposure. Rub thoroughly into every part of your body that was exposed directly or indirectly to Poison Ivy. Let skin dry before putting clothes on. You may bathe before applying but you must spray within 3 hours of exposure.
IF YOU’VE GOT IT ALREADY: Spray and rub on all affected and surrounding areas. Repeat three times daily at a minimum. Do not mix with other remedies. This method helps you to heal faster, and helps stop the spreading but the dermatitis must still run it's course. The prophylactic method above is far superior to this remedial treatment.
