Uses for Olive Oil and Apple Cider Vinegar

2013-10-02 — 23 Comments

Found these great posters to share! I haven’t done research on these tips so use at your own discretion. I use EVOO for mascara removal (in those rare instances when I wear it) as well as for a bath oil and shave lubricant. I’ve heard great things about Apple Cider Vinegar like listed here but haven’t tried them yet. I want to! Have you tried out any of these tips? Please let us know in the comments what you’ve heard or how it worked out for you.

    The Cider Vinegar sits in my cupboard. Thanks for reminding me to use it!


    We love olive oil. But beware: there are a lot of “processed” oils out there that aren’t the real deal (cold pressed, unrefined). And also keep in mind that, for many of the cures, freshness counts. The older the oil is after pressing, the less of it’s magical qualities remain. Look for expiration date when purchasing and use up before that time. Great post, as usual!

    PS — olive oil, fresh minced garlic, and sliced basil from the garden is a mix that is my “chocolate” sauce (I dip stale bread in it and eat it ALL). I would love to share with you how that daily habit help MY health — and spared me from a potential fatal bacterial infection a couple of years ago.


      Shannon! Dahling! I’ve been away and am SO sorry to fall off the planet. I would LOVE to learn more from you about uses of the real-deal olive oil. Excellent points by the way! I’m back, it’s a new year, and I’ll be coming over to visit and leave happy, muddy footprints all over your gorgeous blog as soon as I catch up here at my poor neglected site. Hugs are a’comin! xo Gina


    Thanks for the valuable info. Heila


    that cider vinegar is a wonder drug!


    Used a concoction of cider vinegar, ginger, cayenne & honey for a recent flu. Wasn’t down long. Used warm olive oil (doctor’s orders) in my babies’ ears for infections when they were small. Now, at 15 and 19, they hear just fine. Recently used olive oil to ward off wrinkles. Still have them. Apparently there’s only so much you can do to fight time 😉 I’ll be trying out some of the other suggestions as need arises. Thanks much, Gina. I so love all your practical research and suggestions for living a healthier life.


      Thanks for making me laugh out loud, since I can relate to the ‘warding off wrinkles’ attempts 😉 . I have also had success with olive oil for earaches for myself and my 2 (now grown) sons. And thanks for the flu-concoction suggestion. Anything that shortens a flu is worth trying! Cheers, Gina


    P.S. Totally great in bath and after shave!


    After I finish massaging olive oil into my kale in order to tenderize and flavor it, I rub it into my hands, lips, and if I haven’t applied makeup yet, my face. It does moisturize. Also, if you add raw sugar and a little bit of olive oil, it will make a nice lip exfoliator that tastes like a treat!


      These are great ideas Jean! Thank you so much for sharing them here. I especially like the lip exfoliator idea, which would be wonderfully moisturizing as well. I will try that in conjunction with the beeswax balm I purchase from a local beekeeper which is marvellous too. Thanks again for visiting and commenting. Cheers, Gina
