my daughter in law brought home a bottle of peppermint soap last night, supposedly the peppermint will help her stop sweating???? Does the essential oil peppermint do that.... Do we have an essential oil to help get rid of poison ivy? My granddaughter has it all over her, and she has a tourney this weekend

Peppermint oil INDUCES sweating, not sure about the soap though. Here's one tip for poison ivy from the same author of the oils article:
If you HAVE Poison Ivy on your body:

Take every part (except the roots) of IMPATIENS plant, break it up
into pieces & pop those in a blender with a couple of cups of water &
whiz it all up on puree. This releases all the juices in the leaves,
flowers and stems. Bring that mixture to a boil and simmer for a
couple of minutes; cool down and store in refirgerator. You can
strain it if you want to but we just leave it as is! For some reason
this takes the itch out and blisters do not come up. It also works
for poison oak. All we do is grab the jar and put the liquid on with
a cotton ball or just with fingers if in a hurry! We also use it for
mosquito bites and the itching stops immediately! If you get a
mosquito bite just pick a leaf of the impatiens, "smush" it and
scratch it on the bite.

OK K2C I went out and bought two of the plants this afternoon...made up a batch, and poured some into a spray bottle... the granddaughter has ball practice tonite, so we should be able to tell if this is working. We also plan on putting this on the grandbaby's eczema tonite. Are there any age limitations on using impatiens?

I'm not sure about age limitations, none were mentioned, I'm not a professional, just forwarding some info that may help from an alternative group. Please let us know if it worked for your granddaughter, good luck!

Yeah!!! The granddaughter said that it worked! Not only did she not itch, it seems that she wasnt bothered by the mosquitoes tonite either. I love it when something has beneficial side effects! So far so good... thank you bunches, we will keep experimenting and see how it goes.

well gee! Im keeping these plants and this recipe around.... put some of the liquid on the grandson's eczema this afternoon and this evening, and I didnt see him doing any scratching. Normally at night, I can hear him scratching on the baby monitor (when mom and dad are working) this evening, I didnt hear any scratching at all! Now he did cry the first time I put it on him, but I think that was more because it was cold and it was something new... he really doesnt like new things! But this evening it didnt seem to bother him. I plan on passing this on to others in my plant exchange group, and in my rawfoods group... I am hoping to see folks experiment with this, and report back!
