Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider, it is the liquid extracted from an apple and all its components, which is boiled to concentration.

Apple cider vinegar has been used in homesteads for a selection of activities for a long time.

Body odour

Your underarms have among the most apocrine sweat glands on the body. These glands produce sweat that is easily broken down by odor-causing bacteria on the skin leaving you with a sweaty lasting odour.  Dabbing a little amount of apple cider vinegar under your armpits will naturally balance out your armpit ph. You may also add several drops to your bath water to get a lasting freshness all day long.


Sometimes the acne on your face occurs when the beauty products you use disrupt the normal acidity of your skin.
