A few years ago, I discovered the wonderful benefits found in apple cider vinegar, and I usually starts my day by drinking some of it in water. So I was curious to see what else I could learn on it from Healing With Apple Cider Vinegar: 115 Recipes for Health, Beauty, and Home.
The first part explains the healing properties of the product. It is basically all about probiotics – and no, probiotics is not just found in yogurt. And did you know that Babylonians back to 5,000 BCE were already practicing fermentation, with date palms? And then the Greeks and Roman began making apple cider vinegar, as a by-product of their apple cider. Chapter 1 speaks about the history of apple cider vinegar.
The rest of the book, with simple recipes, shows you all the ways you can incorporate it into all aspects of your life: for health (chapter 2), for beauty (skin, foot soak, nails, etc. – chapter 3), and for cleaning (also for pets, or weed killer – chapter 4).
There are so many recipes to love, for instance the Cold-buster shot (p.16) or the Immunity-boosting Golden Latte (p.32) as preventives.
I have been making my own insect repellent with it (see recipe page 30) for years, and it does work!
But I found many more great tips in this book that I want to try out!
Each recipe comes with an introduction explaining its purpose and benefit, the amount yielded, the preparation and infusion time, and recommended storage.
The book ends with conversion tables and a list or resources.
VERDICT: A fantastic guide to all the benefits of apple cider vinegar, with very easy recipes. You can say goodbye to so many chemicals!
