My Tiny Triumph

Discovering the healing power of apple cider vinegar.

While on a semester abroad in Hungary, I cut my forehead on a piece of glass. I had nothing to put on the half-inch gash except the apple cider vinegar I used to prevent pimples and the aloe gel I used to moisturize my skin. I expected to have a scar. Instead, the gash healed and no scar appeared.

My Satisfying Success

Using apple cider vinegar to ease the pain of a second degree burn in minutes

I foolishly put a plastic cup of honey in the microwave to warm it. The bottom of the cup melted from the heat. When I took the cup out of the microwave, the honey poured out of the bottom of the cup over the back of my fingers.

I rinsed my hand off, then filled the fingers of a rubber glove with apple cider vinegar. After putting my burned hand into the glove, I wrapped a rubber band around my wrist to keep the glove secure. The pain was intense until the vinegar covered my fingers. From that moment on, I felt no pain at all.

Just to be sure, I kept my hand in the glove for two hours. I felt no pain when I took the glove off. To ensure continued healing, I soaked my fingers in apple cider vinegar everyday for 30 minutes. My fingers developed half-inch high blisters, but I still felt no pain.

Once the blisters disappeared, the skin stayed red for weeks. Now there is no evidence my hand ever had that kind of burn.

Ending the pain quickly after that kind of burn was very satisfying.
