How to prepare an apple vinegar tonic?
Applying apple vinegar directly on the face causes skin irritations due to its low pH levels, so it is necessary to dilute the apple vinegar with water.
Caution! An unfiltered organic apple vinegar contains all its full values.
The filtered apple vinegar commonly found in markets goes through processing through which many of its properties are lost.
That’s why it is recommended to use an unfiltered apple vinegar which contains all the natural values.
The tonic is prepared through diluting it with water in these ratios with water: 1: 1, 1: 2, 1: 3, 1: 4 depending on the skin sensitivity. We can mix it with essential oils such as lavender, rosemary, rose etc.
Prepare a mixture that will last for 1-2 weeks and store it in the fridge.
