Are you keen on the idea of soaking your body on a hot vinegar bath? We certainly dislike the unpleasant scent of vinegar but did you know that it’s a top go-to solution for a myriad of home remedies?
Hot vinegar baths, according to livestrong.com, can address a number of health issues including the treatment of skin conditions and infections, detoxification, pain relief and immunity building. Vinegar, specifically apple cider vinegar, when added to your bath water, can also relieve sunburn pain, restore skin’s pH levels, reduce body odor, cut chances of inflammation, and can be used as treatment for athlete’s foot.
You can also use apple cider vinegar as an all-natural astringent to make your skin smoother, reduce fine lines and eliminate excess oil. Apple cider vinegar can also be used to reduce the appearance of acne scars, pimples and even age spots when dabbed on the skin and left overnight.
Here’s a great recipe for a hot vinegar bath.
- Fill your tub with warm to hot water.
- Add one to two cups of apple cider vinegar.
- Bath for 20 minutes and use a washcloth to clean your face and body. Make sure to get your hair wet.

If you plan to eliminate toxins inside your body using apple cider vinegar, you may use this detoxification bath recipe, according to LiveStrong. You can do a detoxification bath up to two times a week.
- Combine one cup of raw apple cider vinegar with either 3 cups of kosher salt or 1 tbsp ginger.
- Add this to a bath with water as hot as you can comfortably tolerate.
- Bath for up to half an hour.
- Rinse yourself after bathing.
Remember to use unprocessed apple cider vinegar for detoxification as commercially produced ones have lost many minerals that result to a weak electrolyte solution.
