Garlic, there is no other word quite so savory or mouthwatering. Adding garlic, or more of it, can make nearly any dish even better- in fact I double the garlic in every recipe without fail. Did you know that when you use garlic it not only adds palatable greatness to your meals but it also gives you many other benefits as well? Garlic has been considered the “wonder drug” and has a history of being used medicinally for treating bites, wounds, headaches, heart diseases, and many more ailments. There are also ways to use garlic for your benefit without even digesting it.
4 benefits/uses of using garlic:
1. Immune system -Garlic is naturally anti bacterial and eating it regularly can help boost your immune system.
2. Antioxidant -Garlic can also act as an antioxidant that reduces the build-up of free radicals in your bloodstream.
3. Poultice -To make a garlic poultice, wrap crushed or minced raw garlic in a cheesecloth (or other thin cloth), wet the cloth with hot, but not boiling, water and put the wet garlic poultice directly on whatever area is bothering you. You can use a poultice for a cough, cold, insect or spider bites, infections on/in your skin, tummy aches, etc.
4. Earache – If you have earache, put two or three drops of warm garlic oil in your ears.
In my home we are true garlic lovers, and we pile it on.
