Apple Cider Vinegar effective for pretty much anything — for skin, hair, house, and even for pets. Raw, unfiltered, and unpasteurized, apple cider vinegar is so much more than a salad dressing!
1. Apple Cider Vinegar to detoxify home.
It’s made from apple juice and is fermented to hard apple cider. It’s then fermented a second time to become ACV. By using it in lieu of other products, we instantly decrease the consumption of unnatural chemicals in our homes and daily lives.
2. Apple Cider Vinegar to for hair shine.
It can be used as a rinse for your hair after shampooing, and it will boost your hair’s body and shine. I recommend recycling an old shampoo bottle, then filling it with ½ tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and 1 cup of cold water. Pour the solution through your hair after shampooing. Do this several times a week for dramatic results.
3. Natural apple cider vinegar regulates the pH of the skin.
Dilute it with two parts water, and spread the concoction over your face with a cotton ball to replace your current toner. You can do this at night after washing, and in the morning before you apply your moisturizer. A dab of it can also be left on the skin overnight to fade age spots or acne scars.
It’s also a recommended agent for warts. For warts, soak a cotton ball in ACV, then fasten the cotton ball over the wart with a Band-Aid overnight. The skin may swell some as it reacts with the solution. However, the wart will fall off. Once it falls off, the treatment should be continued for a few more days, to make sure the wart doesn’t return.
4. It can remove stains from teeth.
Rub teeth directly with apple cider vinegar, and rinse with water.
5. It can balance entire inner body system.
The body constantly strives to achieve a state of equilibrium. ACV helps maintain a healthy alkaline pH level. Research shows that higher acid levels (lower pH level) lead to a lack of energy and higher incidences of infection.
6. It can help detoxify the liver.
As part of balancing your pH, ACV creates an overall detoxification of the body. Research shows that it can help stimulate cardiovascular circulation and help detoxify the liver.
7. It is great for the lymphatic system.
It helps to break up mucus and cleanse the lymph nodes. Believe it or not, research suggests that ACV can help with allergies because of its ability to reduce mucus and sinus congestion. When reducing the effects of allergies, it can also help stave off sinus infections and their related symptoms, such as sore throats and headaches.
8. It can help reduce heartburn.
Though it might seem like an oxymoron to treat stomach acid with an acid-containing vinegar, there is research suggesting that ACV works by correcting low acid, hence reducing heartburn. Natural remedy experts say you should begin to feel relief very shortly after you drink 1 teaspoon followed by a glass of water. Note that this will not give relief if you have an ulcer.
