      You can add 1/4 cup ACV to your vaporizer tank. If you don’t have a vaporizer, pour hot water and ACV into a bowl and hold your head over the bowl to inhale the steam.

      You can also use a concoction made from hot water, one teaspoon of ACV and one teaspoon honey. Heat the water as you would for tea, then add the other ingredients and stir to dissolve the honey. While sipping the concoction, hold the steaming mug near your face to make it easier to inhale the vapor.

      If you prefer not to drink the mixture, gargling is an option. Make the same potion of hot water, ACV and honey described above and gargle with it. Alternatively, skip the honey and use a teaspoon of ACV mixed with a cup of warm water.
