Making homemade garlic oil is very simple! From cooking to ear infections or aches - it's convenient to have on hand!
- Crush cloves of garlic (how ever much you want to make)
- Cover cloves with olive oil about 1 inch over the garlic
- Let this stand for about 3 days, shaking daily. Don't leave the garlic in the oil much longer than this.
- Strain the garlic from the oil with a coffee filter, cheesecloth or clean white cotton t-shirt.
- Store oil in a jar
How can you use garlic oil? You can use it in cooking for drizzling or frying. You can also use it for ear aches & infections!
For ear aches and infections:
Warm garlic oil to a comfortable temperature (you want to use warm garlic, but be sure it isn't too hot!) Place 2-4 drops in the ear 2 or 3 times a day. Lie on your side for 5-10 minutes so the oil doesn't run
I normally use colloidal silver for my ear infections, but this is a good alternative if I run out; it's also yummy for cooking! ;)
Enjoy! It's easy to make homemade oils!
