Uses for Apple Cider Vinegar

1. Treatment for Healthy, Shiny Hair

Repair damaged hair and get naturally shiny and healthy locks with apple cider vinegar. In a glass jar with a lid, mix 2 cups apple cider vinegar with 10 drops essential oil (of your choice). Let the mixture blend for one to two days. To use: Rinse hair after shampooing with 1/2 teaspoon vinegar mixture and 1 cup water.

2. Medicinal Extracts



While not as potent as alcohol-based extracts, infusing medicinal herbs with apple cider vinegar is a great alternative for children or those with alcohol sensitivities. Medicinal extracts treat a variety of ailments depending on the herb used. Learn how to infuse your own extracts in the article “Make Medicinal Vinegar Extracts”.
