This miracle salve is another outstanding ALL NATURAL creation by FMF. Like all ForMeFirst Remedies’ products, it is handmade in Canada with over 95% plant based ingredients. Jewelweed is used for its age-old properties that are known to soothe poison ivy, poison oak, and poison sumac. Cedarwood, Lime, Chamomile, Clove Bud, and Seabuckthorn oils, were all historically used to “ease the itch and dry out problem areas”. These ingredients, and more, are included in this wonderful mixture making its natural efficacy potent and useful. So much so, that I happily discovered it is also excellent for drying pimples, without any pharmaceutical additives. A healthy alternative for more than just poison ivy. Enjoy!

Tara Jaeger ForMeFirst Remedies FMF~Balm for Poison Ivy Tiny Township, Ontario L0L 1P1
Just wanted to let you know how well FMF Poison Ivy Remedy has been selling at Whitfield’s Pharmacy. Every year in the spring you can count on customers coming in asking for something to use on their poison ivy. The requests continue through the summer and this year as late as October. I am pleased to have your poison ivy remedy – the F Balm as we like to call it from your label – to recommend. I have had positive feedback from customers – it seems to work. One enthusiastic customer who had tried FMF Balm before was glad we had the product. He bought 3 jars and said it was the best thing he’d ever used for poison ivy. I am particularly enthused that it contains jewelweed which I understand from folklore has been used for a long time as a remedy. Thanks also for your speedy delivery!

“Hi Tara, I would like to thank you for creating the FM-poison ivy balm! I saw the product on the Valley Farm facebook page this spring and when a co-worker encountered poison ivy early in the season I suggested your product. She applied your balm to one arm and cortisone cream to the other. Within a few applications she had to stop using the cortisone because it was burning her skin, while your balm was soothing her poison ivy. I purchased some to have in case I needed it and applied it to mosquito bites all summer. It actually made the bites disappear within 24 hours!! I have also applied it to poison ivy spots and I am so impressed with it’s effectiveness!!!! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!!!” (2014) – Karen Parker, Tiny Township, Ontario.
