jewelweed impatiens capensis seed and plants    Jewelweed (Orange Jewelweed, Spotted Jewelweed, Spotted Touch-me-Not, Orange Balsam)  - Impatiens capensis - Annual - A native American wildflower having orange three petaled blooms and green leaves that take on a silvery sheen in the rain or under water.  Jewelweed has been used for centuries to treat skin infected with poison ivy and nettle stings.  The leaves, flowers and stems have also been eaten, cooked as a green, but they contain oxalates which may be toxic in large quantities and internal use is currently not recommended  This variety does very well on  moist, well drained rich soils with a slightly acidic pH.  Semi-shade is recommended for best growth.  Like garden balsam (Impatiens balsamea), a relative, the seed pods spring open when touched when they are ripe.  Have fun trying to collect seed!   Easily propagated by summer collected seed planted the following spring. 

Sow seed in pots or trays and keep moist at 70F.  Transplant seedlings whern they about 2 inches in height and move to large containers or outdoors if the temperature does not fall below 55F.   Height: 48 inches

The best treatment for Poison ivy is to not get near it. So teach the kids to recognize it. But we wear shorts and short sleeves, and miss the vegetation in the mix. Skin reactions to contact with thistle, ragweed, poison ivy and oak are common. The first order of business is to wash skin that made contact. The saps from these plants are oily, so use a good soap and scrub thoroughly, but with cold water the first round. Next, thoroughly dry, and then apply a light oil, such as cooking oil or light mineral oil with crushed stems from the Impatiens capensis plant. Rub this around thoroughly. (A prepared infusion is handy, but if you have the plant, it will be ready when the Poison Ivy is.) Then use a mechanic's hand cleaner or degreaser and rub more. Rinse off this time with warm water, then scrub with soap and warm water. Dry and finally apply Rich's Poison Ivy Splash (see: TIP-ITCH TREATMENT) and rub some more.  Do this process immediately upon contact when possible. If you do not have all of these materials on hand, get as close as you can once through, then go get these materials and go through this process as prescribed as soon as possible. If you have discovered it after someone has already been scratching, the process is the same, then you may continue to use the Poison Ivy Splash every 4 hours or more often as needed until symptoms are gone.
