In this post, I’m going to talk about the terrible side effects and dangers of pure garlic oil, and whether you should use it or not!
Indeed, most people, whenever I tell them about garlic oil, are going to imagine themselves using pure garlic oil, in other words, an oil which is derived and extracted directly from garlic, in other words, no other oil is added!
Well, the first thing you need to understand is that such an oil is very rare, and when you are able to find it, it will be very expensive, however, let’s assume that you have it right now, should you use it?
If yes, what are its side effects!?
Well, the first thing I would definitely advise you to do is to avoid using pure garlic oil altogether!
To tell you the truth, I have only used it once in my life, and it’s so concentrated that it made me feel dizzy!
I don’t want this happening to you, this is the reason why I don’t want you to use pure garlic oil, it’s very powerful and also extremely pungent, so, even if you have some few benefits from it, you will suffer terrible side effects, and here they are:
- The first one is damaging your skin.
If you apply pure garlic oil, without diluting it in natural oil first, directly onto your skin, then, you have only yourself to blame!
Pure garlic oil doesn’t only contain lots of powerful anti-inflammatory compounds, but it also contains lots of dangerous compounds for your skin, these are going to attack it and also damage it tremendously, so, avoid doing this as much as possible!
And one more word of advice: I have used garlic oil, the one we get from mixing garlic cloves with olive oil or other vegetable oils, for many years now without suffering side effects or terrible problems, and I can assure you that garlic oil is extremely safe, especially if you are dealing with children who are suffering from ear infections.
Never, ever, use pure garlic oil on children; it’s very damaging and dangerous!
- The second one is terrible smell.
Of course, I’ve just talked about its terrible smell, and trust me, when you smell pure garlic oil, the real stuff, you will get busy and you will feel horrible afterwards, sometimes, I’ve heard of people vomiting and feeling nauseous many hours afterwards, it’s very powerful!
So, avoid exposing your senses and smells, especially your eyes, to pure garlic oil, it’s no joke!
- The third one is interfering with your hormonal system.
Some plant extracts are so powerful that they can disturb your hormonal system, this is probably the case with pure garlic oil, so, unless recommended by a doctor, or a practitioner, never use pure garlic oil, it’s just a waste of time and very risky business.
- And the fourth one is damaging your hair follicles and causing hair loss.
You may have the idea that garlic oil is very efficient for hair growth and for reducing hair loss, well, it’s the truth, but the reality is that using pure garlic oil is going to result in the absolute opposite effects!
Indeed, pure garlic oil is very powerful, as mentioned before, and it will definitely damage your hair follicles, which can be extremely disastrous because it can cause temporary hair loss, and sometimes, even permanent one when it comes to skin damages!
My advice is to avoid using pure garlic oil; it’s just a waste of resources and a danger for your skin and your whole body as well.
