Scented Bath Vinegars <img src="/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" />

Apple cider vinegar is always a healthy addition to the bath. It is soothing, relieves dry, itchy skin, and restores natural pH to the skin. A scented vinegar is even more pleasant to use-it provides the healthy benefits of apple cider vinegars plus the additional therapeutic properties of essential oil.

How to make a (Scented Bath Vinegar):

4 cups of apple cider vinegar
2 cups of petals of rose, lavender, lemon verbena, peppermint, or calendula
4 cups distilled water
10 drop of complementary essential oil (according to the herb used-lavender essential oil if the lavender herb was used for the steeping material).

Steep petals in vinegar for 6-8 weeks. (To shorted the time to 2 weeks, heat the vinegar before adding herbs), After the steeping time, strain the mixture. An old coffee filter works great, just place the filter on top of the container you are going to use and drain. Add an equal amount of distilled water, and complementary essential oil. Allow mixture to blend for a few days then pour into a pretty glass bottle ( I use a dark bottle).

Use 1 cup in the bath water, pouring it in as the water fills the tub. The scented vinegar also makes a good compress when you soak a wash cloth in the liquid, wring it out and apply it to the desired body area.

I have several ACV recipes from my articles over in the Body Care section.


From Exfoliation Basics:
You can make your own exfoliating scrubs easily at home; . . . combine 1 pinch salt, 1/2 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar, and a drop or two of essential oil of your choice (Basil is particularly good for this, as it helps cleanse and liven the complexion), then add 1 tsp ground almonds and 1 tsp ground oat flakes. (This proportion is meant for the face; if you want to use it as a full-body scrub, you will need to make more.) Use your fingers to rub this into the skin well, then rinse off.


From Simple Recipes for Blemished Skin:
Make a solution of 4 ounces Apple Cider vinegar with 20 drops lavender and 20 drops eucalyptus essential oils. Use 1 teaspoon in about 1-2 cups lukewarm water as a final rinse when cleansing the face.


From How to Tame Dry Hair:
An apple cider vinegar final rinse can help dry hair. Use a few drops of essential oil in one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar, and add this to about three cups of boiled water. Placed in a bowl, you can allow most of your hair to soak in it, and splash it over the rest with your hand to rinse it just before you get out of the shower.


From Bath and Body Gift Ideas and Recipes:
This rinse smells heavenly and is wonderful for your hair, especially weak, dry and/or damaged hair.

16 oz container (I used an old witchazel plastic bottle)
4 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
5 drops Lavender essential oil
5 drops Rose essential oil
5 drops Sandalwood essential oil
3 drops Rosemary essential oil

Combine all ingredients in container and top off with water. Cap bottle and shake thoroughly to mix.

You may wish to include a tag with the following information:

Apply liberally after normal washing routine, let sit for about 3-5 minutes, then rinse.

The key to not getting a 'slimy' or 'sticky' feeling to your hair (it looks perfectly clean, but feels odd to the touch) is to use water as cool as you can take to rinse with, and rinse it WELL.

(I use this recipe myself on a regular basis; it's wonderful.)



I hope some of these are helpful to you all!

Hi Victoria,
I have a question about making your own apple cider vinegar. Can I used store bought pasturized apple juice, or do you have to use real apples for the health benefits? I make wine, so I know you'd have to add yeast.

Thanks a lot,
Anonymous

Answer: Apple cider vinegar can be made from fresh, organic, crushed apples that are allowed to mature naturally in wooden barrels. You can also buy Naturally fermented un-pasteurized raw apple cider vinegar, at a health food stores, and have the same benefits, it should be a rich amber color with the "mother" quite visible as sentiment on the bottom. Eden organic is a good brand.

thank you
Anonymous

Answer: For weight loss

ACV has been used as a weight loss remedy for centuries. It has been suggested that the ACV works because it makes the body burn calories better, reduces appetite and gets the entire metabolism working. But whatever the reason, the fact remains that it has stood the test of time and has helped countless people to achieve their ideal weight. Taking the usual dosage of ACV and water before meals.

The traditional dosage of ACV is 2-3 TBLS of ACV in 8 oz of water 3x a day. Add honey to taste.

Victoria, I read somewhere that cider vinegar can help arthritis. Do you have any information about this?

Thanks!

Answer: Vinegar for Arthritis-Two teaspoons of ACV to eight-ounce glass of water also add 2 teaspoons of honey 3x a day. For external use, Soak the painful joint (hand or foot) in a hot but comfortable solution of ACV for ten minutes, two to three times a day a quarter of a cup of ACV to one and a half cups of water. For painful knees or shoulder you can make a poultice by soaking a cloth in a mixture of ACV and water. A quarter of a cup of ACV to one and a half cups of water. Repeat as needed though out the day.

Hi Victoria,

What is the mother of Apple Cider Vinegar?

Answer: Natural unpasteurized acv should be a rich brownish or amber color-and when you hold the acv to light you should see a formation of cob-web like substance floating in it, this substances is called the �mother�.

When you first see this floating substance it can look very unappetizing when comparing it to the supermarkets distilled acv, which is a bright color and free from the cob- web floating substances. Distilled acv destroys the �mother� substance-that contains nutritional health values.

Great website. I found it looking for a recipe for homemade vinegar. But, do you know if you can make vinegar from the cobweb stuff in the vinegar?Is this the Mother of vinegar? I read somewhere you could but I don't know how. And I can't find where I read it from.

Thanks for help you can provide.

Answer: Yes, you can save some of the �mother� (cob-web substances) and transfer it to work in other vinegar bottles. I found the information in Bragg book-pg 1, Apple Cider Vinegar Miracle Health System.

While browsing your website, I came across a section detailing the many benefits of apple cider vinegar. There seems to be a debate over whether organic unpasteurized apple cider vinegar (ACV) should be consumed or the pasteurized ACV common in many grocery stores. Critics of the unpasteurized ACV claim that it many contain bacteria. Critics to pasteurized AVC claim that heating and removal of the mother destroy the health-enhancing properties of the vinegar. What type of apple cider vinegar do you recommend?


Answer: Many commercial acv have been pasteurized, filtered, refined or distilled this processing destroys the �mother� and many of the acv benefits. The best type of apple cider vinegar to use is organic unpasteurized, in which no chemicals or preservatives have been added, it will have the "mother" visible, and is not pasteurized. The "mother " is a natural cob-web substance formed during the last fermentation step. This type of acv can be found in health food stores.
