How long has that bottle of apple cider vinegar been in your pantry? You know the one that you either bought for one specific recipe or maybe your mom gave it to you?

Ginger root might be one of those things that you glance at in the fruit market only because of its bizarre shape. You may even wonder what in the world one would do with such a thing.

Applying before bed will help prevent disturbed sleep.
