Vinegar of the Four Thieves
Vinegar of the Four Thieves has been passed down since the time of the Black Plague, when robbers rubbed a mixture of herbs and vinegar on their bodies to protect themselves from certain death. Antibacterial herbs are combined with raw apple cider vinegar to create a natural cleaner effective in the kitchen, bathroom, and any room that requires disinfection. See our article on The Naturally Healthy Bathroom for the DIY recipe and a helpful how-to video from Andrea!
