Poison ivy and oak. Stinging nettle. Bee stings. Bug bites. These are the things of childhood when your kids grow up surrounded by nature.

So how do you help your child feel better naturally when they encounter any of these issues? You clean the area well, then you use something to help draw the poison out.

This Activated Charcoal Healing Salve is useful for drawing poison and impurities from your skin.  While it draws out what you don't want, it heals and nourishes your skin at the same time.

You can use it on anything that needs help healing or having toxins drawn out. While all of the ingredients in this mixture are beneficial, charcoal is the star as it acts like a magnet, pulling out poisons from bugs as well as impurities in your skin that clog pores and cause acne.

Make some up ahead of time, so you're prepared the next time your child (or you), gets stung by a bee, bitten by a bug or comes into contact with a poisonous plant like poison ivy, poison oak or stinging nettle.

Remember to always use pure essential oils in your DIY natural remedy projects. Your skin deserves the best, especially when it's irritated. I use Plant Therapy essential oils because they are affordable and high quality.
