The Jewelweed is starting to bloom around the lodge. We have the beautiful yellow with orange dots and the plain yellow type. I have always known these at "touch-me- not". They are great to use for poison ivy. The mountain folks have been known to pulverize the stem and put them in ice trays with some water. Keep them frozen and when you need it, pull them out and let the ice cube melt on your poison ivy. Poultices and salves from Jewelweed are a folk remedy for bruises, burns, cuts, eczema, insect bites, sores, sprains, warts, and ringworm. It is a great medicinal plant.
