Itchy Skin?
Vinegar Remedy

Itchy skin is usually associated with dry skin but regardless of the cause you will probably be pleasantly surprised with the results you get from dabbing the irritation with a small amount of vinegar.



You have probably heard that the antiseptic and anti-fungal properties of vinegar make it a natural virus and germ fighter but it does much more than that.

It also helps to restore your skin’s natural PH balance which may improve dry skin patches.

With a PH value of around 5.5 your skin normally leans toward the acidic side although your body is generally more alkaline.

Harsh cleansers and lotions will strip away this acidity exposing your skin to irritants and germs. Vinegar, especially apple cider vinegar, which also contains healthful enzymes, will correct this imbalance allowing your skin to return to its natural PH level.

As a topical (meaning applied externally rather than drinking it) treatment vinegar can be dabbed directly on your itchy skin using a cotton ball or Q-Tip. This is very effective for spot treatments like bug bites or a small itchy rash.

For severe itchy skin try a paste made from equal parts of vinegar and cornstarch. Just apply the paste liberally on the sensitive areas and leave it there until the itching stops.

For larger areas or complete body irritations add 2 or 3 cups of vinegar to a hot bath and enjoy.

For Athlete’s foot a 30 minute soak in vinegar does wonders.

A vinegar rinse after shampooing is very effective for your itchy scalp or dandruff. You will love your shiny hair.

I often get lumps of itchy skin just above the hairline at the back of my neck. Whenever this happens I take a shower and saturate the area with white vinegar then rub it into my hair. It's incredible how fast the lumps disappear ... often before my shower is even over.

Rectal Itching? No problem. Just use a piece of gauze to apply vinegar to the effected area.

Vinegar is so versatile; it will even help you with conditions of excess oil on your skin.

Just try it on some acne and see for yourself.

Other Options for Itchy Skin

I have found that clinical grade essential oils, especially Tea Tree, Peppermint and Sweet Basil, can help calm itchy skin very effectively.
