As tired as you may be of reading about this magic cure-all ingredient, we're equally tired of reporting on it. With that said, rest assured that we wouldn't bring you news about the much-adored product unless we thought it was truly worth bringing to your attention.

While we thought we'd heard it all when it comes to the different things you can make out of it, we were wrong. An infographic from Health Perch shows even more possibilities — like mixing it with aloe vera gel and activated charcoal to make eyeliner, or making your own toothpaste with it.
