Apple Cider Vinegar Uses and Recipes

Raw Apple Cider Vinegar is my new obsession. I am blown away by the many things it is good for! I literally have begun to crave it daily. I wanted to share with you its amazing benefits and uses.

Weird, random story for you…Krystle K and I recently found out that we both used to sneak swigs of vinegar as children! WHAATTTT? Crazy kids. Haha.  -Whitney J

1. As a Beauty Treatment

Apple cider vinegar (ACV)  is very useful for treating the skin, teeth and hair. Check out all the ways you can incorporate a little ACV into your beauty regimen.

  • Use as a hair rinse to fight dandruff and add body and shine
  • Use as a facial cleanser to boost the pH of your skin (1pt water + 1 pt ACV)
  • Add to bath water to relieve the redness and pain of sunburn (1/2 cup)
  • Reduces buildup on the scalp
  • Helps in the removal of warts
  • Reduces cellulite (apply with a cotton ball)
  • Helps control bad breath
  • Whitens teeth and kills mouth bacteria (swish 1tsp for 45 secs then spit out)
  • Reduces swelling and fades bruising (apply with a cotton ball)

Organic Vinegar Skin Cleanser & Toner
To open pores and loosen dirt and excess oil from your face, turn
off heat under a pan of steaming Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar water
(2 Tbsps ACV to quart purified water). Steam face over pan and
use towel draped over head to trap steam. Then pat Bragg Apple
Cider Vinegar on face with cotton ball to remove the loosened
dirt. Repeat steaming and cleansing twice. Then pat or spray on
chilled Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar, diluted with equal amount of
distilled water (store ACV mixture in refrigerator) to close pores
and tone skin. Do steam cleansing twice weekly, as needed.

Create your own products easily and inexpensively using natural items like ACV.

  • Use as a natural disinfectant cleanser
