I am currently just having one of those days where everything that can go wrong, is going wrong. After returning from the car repair shop, I just could not wait to kick my shoes off and relax. Well, instead I kicked my shoes off and stepped on a bee. This is the first time I have been stung by a bee in my adult life, and let me tell you I wept like a child. With my mom not here to come to my rescue (downside of moving out), I quickly turned to Google to find a solution to my stinging, swelling toe. Ah Ha! A simple mixture of vinegar and baking soda mixed together to form a paste has relieved both my pain and suffering. This simple straight from the kitchen cabinet solution got me thinking curiously about what other health issues I can use vinegar to fix. Below are a D.I.Y. health remedies that involve vinegar!
Backache? Soaking in a bathtub of hot water and 2 cups vinegar for 30 minutes will help relieve a minor backache and soothe sore muscles.
Cough? Sprinkle apple cider vinegar on your pillowcase to control nighttime coughing.
Headache? Lie down and apply a compress dipped in a mixture of half warm water and half vinegar to the temples.
Sunburn? Splash it over the sunburned area, then lightly rub into the skin. You can also dilute the vinegar and put it in a spray bottle to apply.
Dandruff? Mix vinegar with two cups of warm water after shampooing.
Stomachache? Drink 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar with 1 cup water.
Lovelies, do you have any remedies that use vinegar? What are some of your favorite home remedies?
