How To Make Your Organic Apple Cider Vinegar

We already know all the great benefits of apple cider vinegar for skin, hair, cleaning products, health, garden, pets and the list can go on and on! 
And because it's apple season why not make your own organic apple cider vinegar. Here is how:

1. 5 organic apples- can use the whole apple or just scraps (cores and peels);
2. 3 tbs. raw sugar;
3. filtered water;
4. a wide-mouth jar and a cheesecloth.

If using whole apples cut them in slices and let to turn brown; same with scraps. Put the apples in the jar, mix with sugar and pour water to cover the apples. 
Cover the jar with a clean cheesecloth and put it in a dark, warm place -like your pantry for 4 to 6 weeks weeks, stirring every few days. 
After 4 weeks you can taste it and if the acidity is to your liking then pour the liquid in a bottle with lid; if not you can leave it for another 2 or 3 more weeks.
The vinegar will be cloudy and with some sediments. If you prefer you can strain it using a paper coffee filter for a clearer vinegar.

Enjoy your homemade organic apple cider vinegar

2 Simple Steps To A Healthy Looking Skin

Protect your skin naturally from the harmful sun rays, from pollution and other environmental harmful factors using simple products that you already have in your pantry.
Here are 2 steps to keep your healthy looking skin on just pennies:

Step 1- Scrub away! 
Natural skin scrub made with the juice from 1 lemon, 1 tbs. baking soda and 1/2 tbs. olive oil. Combine all together, mix well and massage on your face with circular motions for about 5 minutes. The acidity from the lemon juice will soften the dead skin cells and the baking soda will wipe them away while the olive oil will softly moisturize while scrubbing. 

Step 2 - Hydrate!
Make a mixture from 1/2 avocado, 1 tbs. organic honey and 1/2 tbs. mayonnaise. Let sit in the fridge for about 10-15 minutes and then apply cold to your face. Keep this mask on your skin for 30 minutes then rinse away with lukewarm water. Discard any remaining mixture as best results are obtained with fresh mixture.

Voila! After these 2 simple steps your face will feel fresh and smooth, glowing after exfoliating old layers of dead skin and ultimately healthy!
