HELP! My ether elixir™ got lost in my fridge behind some brewskis and half a bottle of ketchup and now tastes and smells like vinegar! What should I do?

Woman up and drink it!

 

Use it as a facial astringent. Ever check out the all-natural, organic, probiotic infused facial serums at Whole Foods? Cha-ching! I should really be charging you extra for this… Just apply to a clean, dry face as you would with any astringent or toner. I like to leave it a little damp to help my moisturizer spread.

 

Pretend you’re at a slumber party and make a homemade face mask! I like to mix it in with food grade diatomaceous earth – (Note: Food grade – NOT the same as the pool stuff) – until it forms a paste, then apply a thick layer, set it & forget it!

 

Use it to naturally leaven baked goods. That’s right peoples – you can use it in place of vinegar in recipes, or simply add a splash to dough and let it sit out, covered overnight & the probiotics will help soften the grains, procreate and excrete gasses that naturally make your breads light & fluffy (and a little tangy!)

 

Dilute with water and use it in your garden or compost to boost your soil’s microflora. The ratio will depend on the quality of your dirt and the plants you’re watering with it – try to just play around with amounts and not get weird about it. Remember a little goes a long way.

 

Feed it to pets. ALERT, ALERT: Research the animal first to ensure their particular anatomy can handle fermented foods. My chickens and parrots LOVE it, and my dogs tolerate it if I play secret chef. I also and have had friends and customers tell me that it’s great for their horses. Moral of the story, pets are family too!
