Allium sativum


THERAPEUTIC PROPERTIES: antibiotic, antibacterial, antifungal

RESONANCE: physical



EXTRACTION METHOD: steam distilled

APPLICATION: Garlic oil must be diluted extremely well each time it is used.

AROMATIC CONSIDERATIONS: Garlic oil is not recommended for diffusion. You will have more “aroma” than you need on your fingers any time that you touch a bottle of garlic essential oil.

PHYSICAL ASPECT: Garlic, in the world of herbal medicine, is considered to be nature’s most perfect antibiotic. It is used for particularly nasty viruses or bacteria because its antimicrobial action is so strong. 2 drops of garlic essential oils in 1 ounce of carrier oil (shake very well!) is an excellent treatment for earaches or bacterial skin rashes. Garlic essential oil has been added, sparingly, to animal feed with good results and has been used for centuries to combat every known virus or bacteria. Never forget how concentrated the essential oil is, but don’t be so afraid that you miss the amazing benefits of garlic essential oil.

GENERAL INFORMATION: This oil is mentioned here mainly so that I can list the cautions that should be used. Essential oil of garlic is not the same as the extracted and very diluted garlic oil that is found in capsules for sale in health food stores. Essential oil of garlic is strong and potent—actually very caustic!!! Two drops of garlic essential oil, undiluted, in the ear would burn sufficiently to possibly require medical assistance.

CAUTIONS: Garlic oil should be used with extreme caution and always diluted well!

As with all essential oils, never use them undiluted. Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner. Keep away from children. If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body (after you have properly diluted the oil in an appropriate carrier.
