Apple cider vinegar is one of the best multi-tasking ingredients on the world and has been used since ages. It is excellent against acute rhinitis, hypertension, allergies, kidney stones, arthritis, etc.
Even though ACV is acidic by its nature, it will actually normalize the pH levels in the body, which are important for keeping you healthy and without inflammation.
Here is how you can use ACV for yourself and your family:
1 Dandruff – You should blend equal amounts of ACV and water into a spray bottle and use it as a shampoo. Spray your hair with the solution, leave it for 15 minutes and wash the hair. Do that each day until you no longer have dandruff. Do this occasionally even after you eliminate the dandruff.
2 Sore Throat – Mix 1 tsp. ACV, 3 tsp. raw honey, and 1 tsp. of cayenne pepper into one glass of warm water. You will relieve the pain with the cayenne pepper and eliminate any bacteria with honey and ACV.
3 Foot Smell- Take some baby wipes and soak them in ACV. Put them in a plastic bag and leave them overnight. Use them when you need them. They also work great as an underarm deodorant.
4 Gas and Irregularity- You should add 1 tbsp. of ACV into one cup of warm tea and consume it before you have your meal. The ACV will help your body to break down the food easily by stimulating your digestion juices.
5 Heartburn- Whenever you feel you have a heartburn you should add 1-2 tbsp. of ACV into a glass of water. If you don’t like the taste you can also add a little bit of honey.
6 Clear Skin- If your skin is oily you should take one washcloth and soak it into apple cider vinegar and put it on your face. This is also helpful if you have scars from previous acne.
7 Sunburn- You can add 1-2 cups of apple cider vinegar into your bath and soak yourself in it for 15 minutes. You will soothe the skin and normalize the pH level of the skin.
8 Whiten Teeth – You should apply the vinegar on your teeth directly and use water to rinse them. You shouldn’t do this technique too often because your tooth enamel may get damaged. If you want to use a more gentle method you can dilute the vinegar with some water and use it to rinse the mouth.
9 All Function Cleaner- You should mix 1 part ACV, 1 part water, and few drops of any essential oil into one spray bottle. This mixture will replace every toxic cleaning agent in your home because it will eliminate all bacteria, clean everything, and you won’t have to worry about being dangerous.
10 Smell Eliminator- Apple cider vinegar can remove any bacteria that cause that unpleasant odour in your home. All you need to do is blend 1 part ACV with 1 part water into a spray bottle and spray it anywhere you feel the smell.
11 Weed Killer- Using the ACV as a herbicide is also another excellent method to try. You can spray the weeds with some pure ACV, or blend it with water lemon juice, and salt.
12 Flea Repellent (animals)- You will successfully repel flea from your pet if you spray its fur with pure ACV.
13 Skin Tags, Moles, and Warts – You will remove a skin tag if you soak one cotton ball into ACV and put it on the skin tag, wart, or mole. You should then put a medical tape over it and let it stay during the night. The following morning wash the area and do that each night until you remove the skin issue.
14 Burns- You will promote healing and relieve any discomfort if you apply a little bit of ACV on the burn as soon as you burn yourself. However, if the wound is open you shouldn’t use this method.
15 Bruises- Use a compress for bruises made of heated cup of ACV and 1 tsp. of salt.
16 Halitosis- You should blend 1 cup of water with 1 tbsp. of ACV and swish the solution in your mouth.
