You’ll need to have a few things on hand for this recipe so if you live around a lot of the poisonous plants –ivy, oak and sumac– you might want to be sure to have this on hand for use.  It provides immediate relief from itching, burning and blistering when applied to the skin.

To the blender add 1 TBL dried peppermint and 1 heaping TBL dried chamomile flowers.  Add enough boiling water to cover-about 1/3 cup.  Put the cap on and allow to steep 5 to 10 minutes.  Add a 3″ piece of fresh aloe leaf to the blender and process until the aloe is finely chopped.  Let settle a few minutes then strain into a small jar.  Discard the solids.  It’s ready to use.  Apply liberally to poison oak area as often as you like.  Store unused portion in the refrigerator.  Will last about a week refrigerated.
