As well as the art items I create, I offer an unusual item with Poison Ivy soap. When I moved to Wisconsin I found Poison Ivy and I was covered with the rash for 10 weeks. After much suffering I developed a soap that is totally natural with plants, jewelweed, herbs and coconut oil. I have sold it locally in Wisconsin for nine years with 100% positive results.
One small bar will last an entire summer for a family of four! You simply wet the rash with water, wet the soap and rub it directly on the rash, forming a slight lather. Let the lather ON! It dries clear. Your itching and rash will end. That's why the soap lasts so long.
The soap bar pictured is a larger bar we have begun offering in 2010. It's over 2 ounces and a bit more than 2 of the smaller bars. We were surprised at how popular the larger bar is but apparently it is much easier for a man to grip.
The soap also ends the itching from bug bites and works great on bee bites. It stops the welts and truly speeds the healing because it pulls the poison out of the bite.
An information card is also included for an insert for gifts.
I sell the soap in Wisconsin stores: Cutrite in Menomonie, Hardware Hanks in Glenwood City, Baldwin Nursery, Baldwin and Karma Gifts in River Falls during the summer months.
If you have a store and would like a display of soap for sale, please contact me. House of Gourds is now on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/pages/House-Of-Gourds/70323991135
