Always dilute apple cider vinegar when using internally or externally.  For yor skin, try 1 part apple cider vinegar to two parts water.  If you have sensitive skin, I suggest doing a test on your wrist before use, and simply adding more water if needed.  Use a cotton pad or ball to apply to face.

What makes apple cider vinegar so effective?

Apple cider vinegar is made from organic apples and goes through a double fermentation process.  The fermented drink posesses enzymes and nutrients imperative for our health including calcium, potassium, pectin, acetic acid and malic acid.

When using apple cider vinegar, make sure you use ORGANIC, RAW, UNFILTERED vinegar, containing ‘MOTHER’.  It is believed that the ‘mother’ is responsible for most of the health benefits in apple cider vinegar, as it is contains proteins, enzymes and friendly bacteria.

  • Cut open the pomegranate fruit
  • Pick the seeds off in a bowl of water with the fruit submerged to prevent splattering
  • The seeds will sink and the white flesh will float for easy separation
  • Pour seeds into a clean bowl and crush with a wooden spoon
  • You can strain the seeds and simply use the pomegranate juice (I left the seeds in for extra exfoliation)
  • Add sugar and coconut oil and stir
  • Add more sugar for a thicker scrub

This all-natural scrub not only feels great but is good enough to eat:)

Off you go and exfoliate! Happy Sunday!
