3. Eucalyptus oil
The oil of the eucalyptus plant contains natural anti-inflammatory properties that may help to ease the inflammation, irritation, and even the itching that is associated with a poison ivy rash. It’s also very moisturizing, which adds to its healing ability. Lastly, eucalyptus oil causes a cooling effect, which can further increase your comfort. To use this remedy, apply 100 percent natural eucalyptus oil to a cotton swab and dab it over the affected area. You could also apply it directly to the skin.
