If you heat vinegar, it gives off pungent fumes that can make your eyes water, your nose run, and your throat 'catch'. Might be beneficial to someone whose breathing is constricted. I have never tried burning it , though.What, in the vinegar, would burn? The alcohol? The sugar?
Vinegar is also an antiseptic, and can absorb other medicinal ingredients. If you look in the archive search you should come up with posts abour Thieves' vinegar..a concotion with of slowly steeped vinegar and other things. Look for 'Vinegar of three thieves,' by Tilde, or 'What I know about keeping clean' by me.
