Garlic oil is a member of the Liliaceae family. This spicy oil has a very strong and pungent odour. It is classed as a top note and is not typically blended with other essential oils.
Garlic has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory agents; it offers a very natural yet beneficial remedy for skin infections. It also has decongestant and expectorant properties which can help in preventing and curing the common cold viruses.
Essential oils can be applied topically once diluted with a carrier oil. They are widely used in cosmetic goods and handmade crafts.
