    After reading the reviews about this soap on this site, I decided to give it a go. I've had a bit of a poison ivy infestation in my garden, and every time I've tried working in my garden I end up with a pretty nasty reaction to poison ivy - though I'd never gotten Poison Ivy until I was 26!

    the last time I was in my garden pulling out the poison ivy which we'd sprayed and that which we missed I came in and washed all possible affected areas - hands, arms & feet. I NEVER had any sort of reaction after using the soap - and i'm pretty sure i did accidentally brush against some of the unsprayed ivy!

    The soap has a strong herbal scent - not altogether pleasant nor unpleasant; and definitely much preferred over other more mainstream remedies. I highly recommend it!

    Do not use this product! My wife's Poison Ivy was getting better before we tried it. It did not help whatsoever and appeared to make it worse.
    After we started our baking soda/alcohol solution again everything started getting better again. Just an FYI.

    This probably works on any rash

    Comments about Burt's Bees Farmer's Friend Poison Ivy Bar Soap, 1 ea:

    My skin went crazy after using a new laundry detergent that broke my skin out. An allergic reaction on my arms, thighs, stomach and back. I've had it for a little over a week and it seemed to be spreading. Very itchy. Using my regular soap with shea butter in it was not helping. The shea butter was moisturizing my skin when I really needed something to soothe and dry out the skin. I did a search for the best allergic reaction/rash soap. I found this soap and knew right away that if it works for poison ivy, it would work for my break out. I got it today and used it today and the break out is already dried up. I lathered up well in the shower, rinsed, then lathered up again and let it dry on my skin. Then rinsed it off and patted my skin dry with a towel. It made my skin feel cool, clean, and soothed. Smells like pine, like you are camping, or outside in the woods. Highly recommended. I will keep this stocked with the rest of my soaps. An excellent soap for ANY type of rash or allergic reaction, because it dries it out.

      If you've already gotten the poison ivy rash this soap is probably too light weight. It is best used to wash the poison ivy oil off after you have made the initial contact with the plant, before the rash begins.

        Comments about Burt's Bees Farmer's Friend Poison Ivy Bar Soap, 1 ea:

        I had a bad bout of Poison Ivy this past week. A coworker recommended this product. The soap moisturizes well and left my skin feeling less stressed. I followed up with Calahyst, I product I bought at [@] that contains calamine and another anti-itch ingredient. The soap alone wasn't enough to manage the rash. Between the two products, I've been able to get through this with minimal scratching.Yes it smells odd--more of an "earthy" smell than a perfumed scent. If you are used to commercial soaps that are full of perfumes and dyes, you might not like it. It isn't unbearable, just different. In spite of the topical items I've used, I felt I needed to go to the doctor as the rash continued to spread. He encouraged me to continue with my poison-ivy-skincare routine, however, he also put me on Predisone (a steroid) for 5 days to speed up the healing process.My bottom line is that I will continue to use this product, and keep it on hand during the summer months. I think it would be great for use after gardening/lawncare. However, it might not be the only product you need to use.

                  After trying just about every product in the poison ivy/itch aisle in drugstores, this soap saved my summer! I combined its use with a blocking product before I worked outside, then lathered with this and cool water when I returned from outside. I bought 2 so I have one on hand always! I have not been able to find this in retailers that sell other Burts' Bees products. Thank you drugstore.com for stocking everything[...]

                      It was the middle of the night and I was going nuts with about 30 mosquito bites...all I could find was this product that had bought "just in case" a kid got into poison ivy. Despite the smell, I used it & it really soothed the itch. Now I'm "spot" using it on itchy bites. I'm really sensitive to smells, but the soothing effect over-rides my desire for a pleasant fragrance!

                        I've used this many times on occasions that I know I have been exposed to poison ivy. When you use it immediately after exposure it is super effective! I will not be without this soap and anyone that works outside at all should have it for those "uh oh" moments when you realize you're in a patch of the bad stuff.

                            No one in our house has wanted to use it yet due to the smell. Only have had a small rash on the hand from my son, so no large exposure to worry about it to have to endure the smell and try it out.
