Garlic Oil: Your Best Friend This Winter

      Comments Off on Garlic Oil: Your Best Friend This Winter

Garlic Oil has long been recognised as an essential oil with the best benefits to counter the winter blues. This is because, as its name suggests, Garlic Oil is derived from garlic; a well-known super food. This Oil is made through a process of steam distillation of garlic cloves. It can also be made through soaking the cloves in a carrier oil, which allows the active components of the garlic to filter into the carrier oil, infusing it with the garlic’s qualities and benefits.

Some of the top reasons why Garlic Oil can be of help to you this winter include:

  • Garlic Oil is antibacterial, antiviral, anti-fungal and antiseptic. As a result, it helps to bolster your immune system which means that it actively helps to prevent and fight the symptoms of colds and flus (as well as many other diseases and infections).
  • Historically, garlic as an ingredient has been known across many different cultures to be a natural performance enhancer. Garlic Oil has thus been proven to help in reducing the fatigue that winter usually brings, while enhancing and maintaining performance.
  • Garlic Oil has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. This means that it effectively aids in the topical treatment of cuts and other minor injuries. When it is cold these ‘minor’ injuries seem to hurt a lot more than in the warmer months (this is reportedly due to the fact that nerve-endings are more sensitive at lower temperatures and because muscles and skin become less elastic, and therefore less resistant to injuries, when they are cold). Topical application of Garlic Oil helps to soothe the pain as well as encourage blood flow to the area for a quicker recovery.
