Towards the end of this post, I have shared my favorite ways to use this vinegar filled with the goodness of Lavender and Rose.
Infused Vinegar and Infused honey are the easiest of all DIY recipes around. It barely takes a minute to put it together once you have all ingredients and you get a potent floral/herbal vinegar that has absorbed all benefits of flowers and herbs. I am using my all-time favorite raw apple cider vinegar as the base, which in itself packs so many benefits for skin and hair. If nothing, just do a weekly hair rinse of ACV and water (1 part ACV and 3 parts water) and see how fresh it leaves your scalp and strands.
Literally a One-step process to make the Floral Vinegar!
Take 1/2 cup dried rose petals, 1/3 cup dried lavender buds and add all of this in 3/4th cup of raw apple cider vinegar. Honestly speaking, you can go easy with the specified quantity , just note that lavender gets very strong after infusion so keep it lesser than the rose petals. Shake this infusion and store it in a tight-lid bottle for 2 weeks. Store it in a cool and dry place.
After 2 weeks, strain out the dried leaves and store the infused vinegar in a glass bottle for regular use.
What else on earth is so quick to make and is so useful a product? I was already thinking about infused honey when I was making this one. Especially when I saw the ridiculously priced cinnamon infused honey on one of my recent walks to the gourmet grocery store. With that much amount of money, I could make infused honey bottles for my whole neighborhood. Middle class woman grocery woes? Yeah! Pretty much.
How to use this Rose and Lavender Infused Vinegar.
Just as you would use raw apple cider for skin and hair. This is just the same with added benefits of rose and lavender. Take one part of this infused vinegar and three parts water and use this as a hair rinse. Dip organic cotton ball in fresh water, squeeze it and then take some of this infused vinegar on it and use it as a facial toner. I would highly recommend to dilute this potent infusion in water for any DIY. Alternatively, simple much, just add it to your bath bucket and pour it over. I am also going to add few drops of this infused vinegar for my next facial steam routine at home. Soak your feet in warm water with a teaspoon of this infusion before going to bed at night. This nighttime routine is very helpful for dry and cracked feet.
So much one can do with this simple DIY! Now go order the ingredients and make this infusion and more. It’s so good that not giving it a try would be crime. Dramatic much? Make this once and you’d be sold for this vinegar too, like I am.
