“Don’t forget to spell the name right, boys! Poison- as in arsenic! And Ivy- as in irresistible! Ta-ta!” 😘🍁
Wish I was able to go to one more day of AFest. Thinking I may be able to come for a few hours tomorrow hopefully!
Drew a quick poison ivy using a pic of @kandeejohnson as a reference. Tried to practice colouring hair as I’ve never done much of that. If I go back and finish it I will post an update :) I love poison ivy 🌿
Making some beautiful jewel weed (Impatiens capensis) sun tea to apply as a wash for a pretty bad case of poisson ivy/oak/sumac... Not sure which one caused the rash because it appeared several days later. Jewel weed can help calm an urushiol oil rash (the oil in a few topically irritating/poisonous plants), and can help to bind to the oils to remove them. It's best applied right after contact, and can be crushed and applied as a paste.
Sometimes it can be hard to diagnose an urushiol oil rash because you may react immediately, or up to 10 days later as your immune system mounts a response. Sometimes the response is very dramatic, and sometimes it takes a while to build and may appear and feel like a spider bite at first. The worst is if you find out later because the oils may still be lurking on clothes and you can risk re-exposing yourself several times over.
When you do know that you have come into contact with a urushiol containing plant, you'll need to wash all of your clothes on hot and with special soap, Technu or Naptha are two commonly used to remove the oil from clothes. If not properly removed, urushiol oil can remain on objects for up to 10 years!
Be sure to support your nervous system with plenty of B vitamins, whole grains, oat seed tinctures, and rest while your body heals. Topically avoid oils as this can trap heat and make it worse.... Aloe inner leaf gel is helpful, and ice cubes instead of itching are even better. With my jewel weed tea I'll be making ice cubes to soothe the itching and inflammation.
Soaking in oatmeal, Epsom salts, and lavender all while scrubbing every inch of me with Tecnu.
Trying every homeopathic way I can think of to relieve the insane itching of poison ivy. It’s not my first rodeo and probably won’t be my last. I have this really awesome exaggerated reaction to shit like this (and bug bites) so apologies to anyone that has to deal with my cranky ass the next week or so.
Any other natural remedies out there?!?! 😩😩😩 #poisonivy#mthfr
“A History of The Batmobile” - Schumacher’s Last Bat Ride:
Director #JoelSchumacher added one more #Batman film to his live action history in 1997’s "#BatmanandRobin ", with #GeorgeClooney as #BruceWayne / Batman and #ChrisODonnell reprising his role as #DickGrayson / #Robin . The Dynamic Duo have to fight against new threats in Gotham City: the cold and vengeful Dr. Victor Fries (#ArnoldSchwarzenegger ) who tragically transforms into the villain #MrFreeze and desires to turn Gotham and the world into his own frozen land and the sensual but deadly #PamelaIsley (#UmaThurman ) who, after thrown into a mixture of Venom and plant chemicals and toxins rises and becomes the poisonous hybrid animal/plant #PoisonIvy who also wants botanical supremacy over the earth. Since “Batman & Robin” pays homage to the campy era of the 1960s, in particular to the Adam West live action series, it is no surprise that for this #Batmobile , designer #HaraldBelker went for more exaggerated fins, perhaps the biggest in the car’s live action history, and an array of bright colors of reds, oranges and yellows underlining the racing wheels and the side panels. Although this Batmobile didn’t have as big of a presence in as 1995’s “Batman Forever”, with a speed of 230 MPG with a Chevy 350 ZZ3 engine, the iconic vehicle definitely had the typical super power for the #CapedCrusader . The car also had arsenal fitting for any task at hand for the #DarkKnight , from rocket launchers to grappling hooks and gave #theBatman all the voice and manual control needed from the singular cockpit. While Schumacher’s film is negatively critiques across the board, nevertheless this Batmobile and film are part of the character’s long and diverse history on the big screen.✌🏼❤️🦇🚘🎬 #HistoryoftheBatman#DCComics#BatmanArt#ComicArt#ComicBooks#Comics#BatmanFans#BatFans#InstaBatman
