"Garlic is divine." Anthony Bourdain, Kitchen Confidential
The world has nourished a timeless love affair with this potent little bulb. In The Practice of Aromatherapy, Jean Valnet states that garlic was elevated to the status of divinity in ancient Egypt and that the pyramid builders were issued a daily clove of garlic for vivifying and strengthening potency. Phoenician sailors travelled with large amounts of garlic to eat to build internal rectitude.
This is far more than an oil infusion. Our Garlic Essential Oil is an organic super critical extract made via molecular distillation from freshly grated garlic, and it is about 900 time times more potent than fresh garlic.
Use this awesome allium essence for all the amazing reasons you would use garlic fresh. It is beautiful in cuisine – the smell gets juices flowing and the tummy growling! It is also a powerful botanicalbiotic used topically to preserve body balance. A drop in shampoo may chase away childhood pests. Dilute to use.
"I could smell garlic, butter, and wine - the world's most delicious flavor combination. It made me feel warm, like the first few sips of wine always do." Sarah Jio, The Violets of March
