I am always coming across more and more awesome things kombucha does, here are a few…

1 – KOMBUCHA SALAD DRESSING
Let your kombucha brew become very vinegary and then add it to your salad with some sage, fresh finegar, Olive oil, garlic and some red peppers to spice it up and you have yourself one healthy kombucha salad dressing!

2 – KOMBUCHA FOR YOUR SKIN
1 – Kombucha for Itchy Skin – If you have itchy skin try using some kombucha vinegar, just rub some on your skin. This is good for people who have skin that is irritated by soap.

2 – Kombucha for Softer skin – Beat an egg white until it is frothy then add a tablespoon each of Kombucha Tea and honey. Apply it to your skin and let it dry, then sponge it off with cool water.

3 – Kombucha tea gargle,
Mix kombucha tea and honey before bed.

4 – Kombucha tea for pimples
Kombucha tea on a cotten bottle applied to your face to prevent pimples.

5 – Kombucha fly trap for home brewing kombucha
Take a take small jar and 1/4 way up with kombucha and a funnel on top and trap those suckers! Also getkombucha.com has some cool free youtube vids about this!

    Great ideas. Here’s a few more:

    1 teaspoon of K. tea mixed in cat food (dry and canned) will make the fur shine and help keep fleas away.

    Dog cookies

    2 cups wheat flour
    1/2 cup cornmeal
    2 teaspoons veg. oil
    1 teaspoon salt or 10 drops trace minerals
    1 egg
    3/4 cup K. tea
    (options: vitamins for dogs, dried culinary herbs)

    mix together to form stiff dough, kneed, roll out 1/4 inch thick. cut with cookie cutters, bake 350 for 30 minuets, or till hard.

    Things tried that were not so good…. cutting up Scoby in thin pieces and frying in a batter . It was like eating a rubber band.
    Best just to compost it.

    Next idea is to try making a doggie chew out of the Scoby. I will let you know how that works out.

    hello again,

    have tried making doggie chews out of the Scoby. Did this a few times to get it right.

    First time, the Scoby was was too thick and too moist. The dogs tried to chew and gave up and looked disgruntled.

    Second time, I used thin Scobys, cut them to size (plastic knife) and let them dry in the sun for 1 week. (same as first time) This was better and the dogs liked them. It took them awhile to eat.

    Third time, prepared Scobys like the second time but, due to lack of sun, baked them in the oven to 250 for 1 hour. This works too.

    I also found that after they have baked in the sun or oven, I roll them up and it looks more presentable. So yes, I am planning to make all my friends’ dogs chews for Christmas.

    And what type of dog do I have? I don’t. I have a cat. No he doesn’t like the chews, but likes the K juice in his food. The chews go to my friends and daughters dogs.

    next project: Make a drum for my grand child? I’ve seen it on another website.

    Namaste, B
