I’m not going to wait until somebody gets sunburn to try this out, so I’m mentioning it here now in case any of you have heard of such a thing: rose vinegar for sunburns. Some gals in the natural herbal section of the blogosphere are praising it’s benefits. I am definitely going to try it. I’m curious like that.
Here’s how you make rose vinegar:
- Fill a glass jar with fresh rose petals and leaves.
- Fill the jar with apple cider vinegar.
- Cap the jar with a PLASTIC lid! Vinegar will eat through a metal one and discolor your vinegar solution.
- Allow the glass jar to sit for 3 to 6 weeks.
To treat a sunburn, pour 1/4 of a cup of rose vinegar into a bowl. Mix in a few cups of fresh, cool water. Dip a clean, cotton cloth into the rose vinegar and wring lightly. Dab the sunburned skin with the rose vinegar. Apply as needed. Rose vinegar also helps cool insect bites and stings and heat rash.
I am definitely going to make it! I’ll have my scientific results for you in a few weeks. 🙂
