Is tea tree oil a good remedy for poison ivy?


Answer by  kph0329 (637)

Yes, it can be used as a remedy. Tea tree oil helps with the itching, and it also helps heal the blisters that break out on your skin. You will need to apply it several times during the day. Tea tree oil probably won't stop you from itching completely, though.
