A Little Garlic, Anyone?
This is just a quick post to thank everyone for your kind comments~There is so much to learn about health, but I think that every little thing we can do, adds up to a lot in the end!
Michele mentioned using garlic on the soles of the feet for illness, which is a great idea, too. It's great for small children who can't handle eating the garlic.
We make up a garlic oil by blending olive oil and garlic in the blender, putting it in a jar with cheesecloth on the top for a couple of days (to allow moisture to evaporate), and then strain and bottle. We use this oil, warmed, directly in the ear for earaches, and it can be rubbed on the feet to help fight infections.
If you have an emergency and don't have oil on hand, you can apply olive oil to the soles of the feet, and then chopped garlic mixed with Vaseline (straight garlic tends to blister the skin) after that. To hold your poultice on, cover with a gauze pad and skin tape around the foot.
It sounds complicated, but really isn't, and that garlic gets right in and starts pulling out infections of all kinds, fast. It's good stuff!
Thanks, Michele, for the reminder!
May you and yours be blessed today.
