I also have poison ivy in places where using an herbicide would be a problem. Actually I try to not use them if there is any other alternative. I place 2 disposable gloves over my gardening gloves and carefully pull the ivy trying to get as much root as possible. I then put it into a large plastic bag for disposal. If you wait to pull the ivy until you have had rain the root will come out easier in the softer soil.


I have only had 1 time where I accidentally brushed the ivy and I immediately knew I had a problem. My forearm started to burn and the welts were coming up so fast I could actually watch them increase in size and amount. I remembered that I had a poison ivy salve from a friend who has an herbal soap/products business. The salve contained jewelweed, which is a native plant. After I had washed my arm and applied a bit of alcohol I put a small amount of the jewelweed on my arm.

It was absolutely amazing to watch the welts and red spots start to diminish and within 15 minutes you could hardly tell that I had brushed the poison ivy. After that happened I wrote an article in our master gardener e-newsletter about jewelweed. Incredible the way it works on poison ivy.
