Ingredients: Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
Country of origin: USA
How to store: Store in a cool, dry place away from heat and light.
Mix into a tonic or tea first thing in the morning, or before each meal, for digestion or general wellness. Mix 1 tbsp of ACV into a cup of warm water (some like to add a teaspoon of honey, too), or mix 1-2 teaspoons of ACV into a glass of cold water or juice. Make sure to dilute it this way; don’t drink undiluted ACV.
Reach for ACV instead of white or balsamic vinegar for your next salad dressing (use 1 part ACV to 3 parts oil), add to sauces and marinades for some tang, or drizzle on cooked greens. It’s also great in coleslaw or gazpacho, and hearty fall and winter soups and dishes.
Many use ACV as a hair rinse or a leave-in conditioner, as it can make your hair super silky, and work wonders on dry, itchy scalps and frayed ends. Just wash your hair, then massage diluted ACV into your roots, scalp, and all the way through your hair. Leave it in for a half-hour a few times a week.
Mix one part ACV with one part water for a non-toxic, all-purpose household cleaner. To clear pesticides and bacteria from fresh fruits and veggies, give them a quick bath of 10% ACV and 90% water, then rinse (not recommended for fragile or porous fruits like berries).
