Clary Sage Vinegar
Mixed with warm water, Clary Sage Vinegar is a soothing and astringent gargle for sore throats and inflamed lymph nodes. You can also omit the honey and put the vinegar infusion into a spray bottle to use as deodorant. Or dilute 1 Tablespoon of the Vinegar in 16 ounces of water and use as a clarifying and enriching hair rinse.
¼ cup dried Clary Sage Blossoms
1 cup apple cider vinegar
¼ cup honey
Fill a glass jar with Clary Sage Blossoms. Pour vinegar over the ingredients. Make sure that the vinegar covers the ingredients by at least 1 inch. If you are using a metal lid, cover the opening of the jar with wax or parchment paper and then put the lid on, or use a plastic lid. Store vinegar in a cool, dark place for one month. Shake occasionally. After one month, strain the vinegar through muslin or cheesecloth into a clean jar and mix in the honey. This Clary Sage infused vinegar is best stored in a glass jar with a plastic lid or cork top.
