Before using garlic oil for your skin, you need to know what you are doing first!
This is the advice I always tell my readers when they are dealing with this product!
I know that this is going to sound scary, but in reality, it’s not.
Garlic oil is very easy to use; however, you need to first know what you are doing because if you exceed the amounts I’m going to recommend to you, you will end up damaging your skin!
So, the first thing to understand when dealing with garlic oil for your skin is why should you use it in the first place?
Indeed, garlic oil shouldn’t be used because you want to!
It’s a very powerful product, it can interact with your skin and even damage it easily, and this is the reason why I always advise people to only use it when they need to.
For example, if you are suffering from skin rash, skin inflammations or infections, you can use it, but please, never use garlic oil for beauty purposes.
In other words, you just want to look after your skin, so, you decide to use some few drops of this powerful oil, this is just dangerous and it will never work!
What you should do instead is only use garlic oil when you are suffering from skin problems, when you are suffering from inflammations and infections to be exact.
This is the most important thing you need to understand from this post:
If you are not suffering from skin rash, inflammations, or infections, then, don’t use garlic oil on your skin; it’s just dangerous and will not help you that much when it comes to beauty.
- So, how to use garlic oil on your skin?
I’m sure that you have already heard of carrier oil, they are fatty acids that are going to ease up the transfer of nutrients and antioxidants from garlic oil and other essential oils to your skin.
Well, I need you to use them again; in this case, you need to mix half a teaspoon of good quality, good grade, garlic oil with two teaspoons of olive oil.
From my experience, olive oil is definitely the best when it comes to carrier oils, especially when you are dealing with garlic oil, it’s very easy on your skin, in other words, it doesn’t cause allergies, and it’s also very beneficial since it contains lots of nutrients that are going to help your skin heal as well.
What type of garlic oil to use for your skin?
First of all, never use homemade garlic oil on your skin; it can definitely cause botulism and other dangerous diseases!
I’ve already talked about this in many of my previous posts. One word of advice: just avoid using homemade garlic oil on your skin, unless you know what you are doing, which is very difficult.
The second thing to focus on is to always buy fresh garlic oil.
As you may already know, oils, different ones, will go rancid very quickly, so, the older they are, the less efficient and nutritious they will be on your skin.
How much garlic oil should you use?
Never exceed half a teaspoon on a daily basis; this is more than enough to get rid of most skin problems especially skin rash and inflammations, and don’t forget to mix it with olive oil as mentioned before.
What about candida and other funguses?
Indeed, garlic oil, when used directly onto your skin, is very efficient against these fungal infections, however, you should understand that relying on this essential fatty acid is time consuming, in other words, it’s going to take you at least three months in order to get rid of your fungal issues once and for all.
