The sap of the jewelweed plant (Impatiens capensis) is thought to be helpful in binding to and removing urushiol from skin.
Jewelweed, tea tree oil, and aloe vera are not recognized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as treatments for poison plant rash.
The leaves of jewelweed (Impatiens spp.), which often grows near poison ivy, may neutralize the poison-ivy allergen if rubbed on the skin right after contact.
Another formulation known as Jewelweed is popular as a natural home remedy for skin irritation, partly because it is considered so simple to make.
Mix together ¼ cup of water, ¼ cup of aloe stems or juice, ½ cup of jewelweed stems and leaves.
