Apple Cider Vinegar And Honey

rosey apple

Apple cider vinegar and honey have been experimented with for a variety of human uses, including weight loss and home remedies.

If you are interested in using this combination for losing weight, take a look at my in-depth page Vinegar And Honey Diet.

This page provides information about how this diet works, and a recipe for you to try. However, if you don’t fancy drinking the vinegar, there is also an alternative – yes, a different way to get the benefits of the vinegar, without the taste!

If weight loss is your aim, this may be a relief, since you are going to have to take the apple cider vinegar and honey mixture over a period of time, depending on the amount of weight you wish to lose.

Please note, honey should not be given to young infants under one year old, as honey can cause botulism in babies. Although it is rare, it can cause a serious paralytic disease.

How Else Might Apple Cider Vinegar And Honey Be Used?

I have discovered a number of recipes for all kinds of home remedies combining these two ingredients.


However, I must say that I cannot vouch for any of these remedies personally. Some of the complaints they are intended for, are ones where, quite frankly, you may prefer to visit a medical professional! If this is the case, you need to consider whether this is what you should do, without delay. However, less serious complaints might be resolved with a home remedy.

It must be said, honey has been used in healing for centuries, and there are a lot of people who are convinced by its healing properties. One thing we do know for certain, is that it has anti-bacterial properties that are beneficial.

Buying Honey

Just a word before you purchase honey. Firstly, if you wish to try any of these remedies, or even if you are using honey for cooking or eating for pleasure, I recommend you buy organic honey. Honey can be contaminated with pesticides, so if you are taking apple cider vinegar and honey for health benefits, it doesn’t make sense that you would use honey containing toxins.

Those who buy non-organic produce may hope that they will wash the pesticides away when they clean the fruit or vegetables – but any pesticides contained within honey are obviously going to stay there!

Apple Cider Vinegar And Honey Home Remedies: The Recipes

  • Ease The Joints
    If you drink a glass of water with 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar, and 2 teaspoons of honey, at intervals 3 times a day, it is said to dissolve the crystal deposits of uric acid that might otherwise form between the joints. This in turn may help to deter arthritis – and there is more information about this arthritis on this site – see this page about Bee Venom.

  • Ease Boils
    You’ll need:
      1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
      1 tablespoon of honey

    Mix together in a cup of hot water, and drink twice a day. Use hot packs on the boil for 15 to 20 minutes three times a day. Of course, if the boil is especially bad, it may need to be lanced.

  • Colitis
    Take 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar, and 2 teaspoons of honey mixed with water, three times daily.

    Apis mellifera
