The benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar are endless. Well the limit hasn’t been defined as of yet and so my saying sticks. Forever receiving praise, ACV is a fermented juice that’s amazing for our skin, digestion track, and mental strength. Yes, it cures a foggy brain and negativity in its thought bubble.
A strong aroma with a sting on its own, ACV is best used when dilated by water, hence ACVW. I stress the importance of diluting this vinegar with as it’s super powerful. And as we know it, too much of something is bad enough.
Past the drinking dosage, I’ve found that Apple Cider Vinegar can also be concocted into an aftershave. Yes! It’s true. It was a thought that came to me when I nicked myself the other day and to my google satisfaction, there were articles to support my theory. Of course there are health brands that specialize in their own formulas but you can in fact also make your own— saving you a nickle, dime, couple bucks. Here’s the recipe I found.
- Apple Cider Vinegar
- Airtight sealable container with lid
- Witch hazel
- Herbs or essential oils you may fancy *Know that herbs will need a month or two to fully do their thing*
- Optional: cinnamon, bay leaves, cloves, cedar
But I’m a woman. Do I really need an aftershave?
It doesn’t hurt. Literally, it will ease the pain caused by fresh razor shaves. Our favorite Apple Cider Vinegar solution soothes razor burn, seals pores, and helps to moisturize the skin–acting as an antiseptic to clean and rejuvenate the affected areas.
Okay but doesn’t it smell weird?
Actually no. It’s fragrance-free once it dries. It also doesn’t stain and is of course alcohol-free (which is where the sting comes from). Know that you can create the scent and fragrance you desire to overpower the ACV. Think of it as a fun experiment at first.
Have You Tried It Yet?
I haven’t made my own potion yet but I have taken a cotton-swab dab to a knick after showering. True to the claims, it did sooth and sew up my booboo of sorts. Do I plan to make a formula? The answer is yes.
