Amazon soon? Poison Ivy extract for sale

Only had a little time before doggies so headed to Soccer fields and it was an unexpected bonanza. Have to go back because I didn’t have time to take pics of a bunch of other things blooming.
Here’s poison ivy flowers and, from a very weird web site, a guy who sells its’ “essence” for $15. for a halff-ounce bottle. Go figure.
Poison Ivy Flower Essenc

Mandana Boushee of Nourishing Botanicals + Wild Gather : Hudson Valley School of Herbal Studies

writes Mandana : “poison ivy (Toxicodendron radicans) : this essence was made with ivy that grows on my property that i have a close relationship with. poison ivy’s gifts are often overlooked but powerful. they provide relentless protection and embody strength and resilience. they are humble and wise guardians. they hold us and see us. they protect the earth, land, and all living things. they are an elder of the earth. they let you know fiercely that if you don’t pay attention, witness, and give respect, they will leave a mark to let you know- they are here, they have a place, and they have a name. i like to use poison ivy essence in tick spray blends. as a health advocate i often take a drop of queen ivy essence when entering a hospital, dr. office, family visit or any situation or location i perceive will trigger feelings of vulnerability. i think queen ivy is a valuable ally for folks who work/fight systems that work towards oppressing the land + populations; i like to leave a drop of essence on earth that has been ripped up, colonized and mined as an offering of protection and solidarity. i take a drop of queen ivy to give me power and confidence in social situations. i feel the essence has a place in sex work, as an energetic protector. i like to give this essence to my mother and others who came to this land as refugees and immigrants, as an affirmation that they too have a place here.”

As I get older -- and I'm 70 now -- I seem to find more and more that nature is the true source of peace, inspiration and, most of all, the truth the passeth understanding. Though my knowledge is sketchy and superficial, I wanted to share it while I can.
