Like coconut oil, apple cider vinegar is a miracle product with endless beauty benefits. It prevents pimples (when consumed), doubles as a toner and in some cases, controls weight issues.
Beyond our more vain concerns, ACV also totes incredible medicinal properties, including cold relief. And with fall just around the corner, now is the perfect time to guard your body from impending sickness.
If you want to do it the all natural way, we’ve got great news! A company called Nature’s Jeannie makes Gargle Away, an apple cider rinse available in pod form, à la Keurig coffee. According to Well + Good, the liquid medley is made up of ACV, Himalayan sea salt, organic honey, licorice root, lemon, Mediterranean oregano, and cayenne pepper.
This cocktail may sound familiar to Beyoncé fans. The Lemonade singer lost weight for Dreamgirls with The Master Cleanse, a weight loss system that utilizes similar ingredients.
