My 16 year old son is allergic to poison ivy, he gets atleast 2 bad cases each spring and fall, and generally mild cases during summer. He has always had to get shots and go on a round of a dos-pak (steroid) when he gets it in the spring & fall. This spring, last week as a matter of fact, he noticed a few spots. He rubbed a drop of Peppermint oil on the random spots about 2x. They dried up and he experience little to no itching.
Then he had a dime-sized patch on his wrist. I read in the Desk Reference that Thieves would help, so out it came. We applied it 2-3x with him just rubbing a drop onto the area, nit immediately started drying up and ot itching. Finally he got the worst 'bubble-cluster' on the side of his hand about the size of a nickle. Plus it was bubbled up to about 1/2", the worst I had seen. We immediately started the Thieves and he noticed within just 2-4 applications that it was getting better. Then we decided to put 2 drops directly on the blister 2x a day.
It has now been 3 days since the very first application. He has not complained of any itching, it is drying up and the bubble is almost completely gone. He also commented how he likes the smell!
