Hi all,

Hope everyone is good, we are starting to feel a little better here. My husband will still be out on the Spanish Fire a while, I guess his crew and a couple more are doing rehab stuff or something.

Tazgirl- if you are still around and not busy with your FF…A CURE FOR POISON OAK!.. Jewelweed soap. Jewelweed is a plant that grows next to poison oak and ivy. Anytime there is a poisonous plant, it antidote grows nearby. Burt’s Bees makes a poison Ivy soap that has jewelweed in it, and it works like a charm. If you can’t get that right away, have him scrub with Dawn dishsoap, it cuts the oils, and it will no longer be contagious. But the jewelweed actually cuts the oils and clears it up in like 24 hours. However it is very drying, so I always have my husband wash with dove for the next week or so.

Thank you to everybody for wishing us well, we are getting better very slowly. and maybe I will see my husband next week.

ps. Ab’s would you please forward the poison Oak cure to Taz, just incase she is too busy with her FF to come to the boards :)
