As you probably noticed - for some time I have been trying to largely give up cosmetics offered by cosmetics companies, and I began to use more cosmetics that nature provides us. After siemieniu linen and rice water the time has come for Apple vinegar.
Apple cider vinegar can be bought at the grocery store (note! it must be apple cider vinegar, not apple spirit !!!) or make it yourself according to the recipe:
- We wash and cut a few large apples into small pieces together with the skin and the seed nests. We put it in a large jar and pour it with sweet, boiled water in the proportion: 1 sugar spoon for a glass of water.
- We plug the dish, tying it with canvas at the top. We keep in a warm place for about four weeks - apples must ferment. From time to time, we mix everything with a wooden spoon. Pour the vinegar into the bottles, filtering through gauze.
Making apple cider vinegar yourself - we are sure that it is 100% natural and it certainly won't hurt us.
Apple cider vinegar is an invaluable treasure:
,, This is a source of vitamins: A, B1, B2, B6, C, E, P and beta-carotene. It is effective against bacteria, contains many essential minerals and trace elements, such as potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, chlorine, sodium, sulfur, copper, iron, silicon and fluorine. In addition, a very valuable component is pectin present in it, which improves digestion, lowers cholesterol, improves the condition of blood vessels, prevents atherosclerosis and hypertension. Apple cider vinegar, thanks to the content of antioxidants, delays the aging process, has a positive effect on the heart and the immune system. "
