My grandparent are from portugal and when my grandfather had a farm here in the states they had poison oak and Ivy. My dad told me once that my grandfather would wait till they had a open sore and then burn a leaf from the plant and blow it out and lay it on the open sore until it cooled all the way. According to my father and from what I have seen till the day he died he could sleep in that stuff, roll around in it and he never ever came down with it but me and my twin brother if the wind is blowing just right it seems we get it. Does any one know if this ammunity thing really works?
