Jewelweed Poultice Recipe


  • Jewelweed or wound wash
  • Clean cloth or gauze pads and medical tape.


  • Crunch up some jewelweed leaves with your hand, and add a little saliva to them or use about one tablespoon or so of wound wash.
  • Place the crushed and dampened jewelweed onto the poultice material or lightly dampen the material with jewelweed wound wash.
  • Secure the poultice into place by tying or taping it around the injured area using medical tape.
  • Repeat this step with clean poultice material as needed. Never repeat these steps with a used poultice.
