The Medicinal Side of Vodka – No Cocktails Here….

Posted Nov 22 2009 10:01pm

This was sent to me and I thought worth sharing, new ideas that I had not thought of.  The hair thing sounds good to me and know a couple folks that image could certainly benefit from a foot soak with vodka too. 

The toothache was the first use of this sort I had heard of.  I guess if all else fails you can drink it (grin).  Not too long ago there was a case where vodka did save a life through a drip too.  BD  

How vodka on drip-feed saved a life

1. To remove a bandage painlessly,  saturate the bandage with vodka. The stuff dissolves adhesive.

2. Using a cotton ball, apply vodka to your face as an astringent to cleanse the skin and tighten pores.  (this does not apply to teens)

3. Add a jigger of vodka to a 12-ounce bottle of shampoo. The alcohol cleanses the scalp, removes toxins from hair, and stimulates the growth of healthy hair .

4. Pour one-half cup vodka and one-half cup water into a Ziploc freezer bag and freeze for a slushy, refreshing ice pack for aches, pain or black eyes.

5. Fill a clean, used mayonnaise jar with freshly packed lavender flowers, fill the jar with vodka, seal the lid tightly and set in the sun for three days. Strain liquid through a coffee filter, then apply the tincture to aches and pains.

6. To cure foot odor, wash your feet with vodka.

7. Vodka will disinfect and alleviate a jellyfish sting.

8.  Pour vodka over an area affected with poison ivy to remove the urushiol oil from your skin.

9.  Swish a shot of vodka over an aching tooth. Allow your gums to absorb some of the alcohol to numb the pain.
