How do you use apple cider vinegar?

I’ve definitely discussed apple cider vinegar here on my blog before, but I don’t believe I really went into detail regarding the many different ways it can be used to achieve a variety of outcomes.

Years ago, I drank a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar a day for a few months. This stuff offers a multitude of health benefits upon ingesting it, and while I cannot recall for certain why I stopped using it, I imagine it was genuine forgetfulness, and I should probably start consuming it again.

I have, however, been using apple cider vinegar as a facial toner for a couple of years now, and while it is a wee bit smelly upon application, the smell does dissipate relatively quickly, so you don’t have to worry about smelling like a pickled onion for too long. Blaine refuses to kiss me until the smell has died down, and that’s usually within a 30-minute timeframe, for anyone wondering.

I thought I would share some of the various ways apple cider vinegar can be used as a refresher, if you will, and this information comes from

“History of Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar, a common cooking ingredient, has been used since ancient times as a form of medicine. In fact, around 400 BC in Greece, Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, prescribed apple cider vinegar mixed with honey to treat a variety of illnesses.

The power of apple cider vinegar comes from its properties, including acetic acid, malic acid, potassium, magnesium, probiotics, enzymes, and polyphenols.

Because it is anti-bacterial, anti-septic, anti-viral, and anti-fungal, apple cider vinegar has many amazing uses.
