A few common uses for vinegar lotions include: Using it as a cleanser, toner, to treat allergic skin reactions, as a cellulite treatment, head lice and dandruff treatment, acne remedy, itching remedy, to treat fungal infections, treating blisters, removing skin tags and warts, improving skin tone and much more.

How to Make your own Cosmetic Vinegar

NB - Use essential oils that are suited to your skin type and needs.

Measure out your dry plant material, add it to the vinegar and add the essential oils. Cosmetic vinegars that contain plant material should be left to macerate for the period stated below. Leave in a screwtop jar in a windowsill during that time.

To use your cosmetic vinegar

Add one tsp of the vinegar mix to 1 cup of still bottled water to cleanse your face and/or 4 tbsp into your bath water.
