There are many Ivy remedies published stating that Ivy can heal this and that making Ivy sound like a very versatile heal all. Wiccan and Pagan web site give home remedy formulas, but Ivy is NOT a plant to mess about with. as it is toxic for a lot of people. Yes, Ivy has a lot of useful medical properties but I firmly recommend that you only use Ivy through the guidance and preparations of trained and qualified herbalists. .

As with all natural remedies consumption of Willow
should be guided by a qualified herbalist or physician.

best use ...  

despite prolific publication of traditional home remedies using Ivy in many books, I say this is not a plant to mess with, but qualified herbalist formulations for treatment of cellulite and burns are remarkable

qualities of Ivy are said to be ...

antirheumatic - relieves rheumatism
antispasmodic - relief of physical and muscular tension, asthma, cramps etc.
astringent - reduces fluid loss, constricts tissues, such as stop bleeding
expectorant - mucous breakdown and flow
rubefacient - applies heat through the skin
sedative - calming relief of mental and nervous tension

toxicity? ...  as all plants have a nourishing level and toxic level

For most people Ivy is just plain toxic at low consumption levels, and live raw ivy is externally irritating for most people, and internal use is a complete no-no! Useful preparations are made by herbalists, but these should not be attempted at home. With Ivy any use.must be guided by a qualified herbalist.
