How do I Apply the Oil?
Dilute the oils 50:50 and apply 4-6 drops to the areas at least two times per day. Apply a cold compress on the area up to twice per day. Do not apply a hot compress!
Is there any Supplement I can take to Relieve Poison Oak?
Not directly; however, taking a supplement that will help with inflammation, supports the immune system and liver can definitively help. For example, Omega Blue contains omega 3 fatty acids from fish oil and four essential oils such as lemongrass and clove. These oils have anti-inflammatory properties and support the immune system.
