11 Unusual, Bizarre Uses of Garlic Outside the Kitchen (Number 7 Will Amaze You!)
Garlic is a broad-spectrum antibiotic, killing bacteria, fungus, viruses and mold, so it’s an important ally for natural health.
The following are 11 unusual uses for garlic you may not have heard of before.
1. Treat Cold Sores
Raw garlic may work as well as commercial medical treatments for unsightly lesions.
Cut a garlic clove in half and place it directly on the cold sore for 10 minutes, several times a day. The acidity may cause discomfort at first.
2. As Treatment for Acne
Cut a clove of garlic in half and rub it over the affected area. Done regularly, the antibacterial properties found in garlic cloves will help to clear up your complexion.
3. As Cough Syrup
To make garlic cough syrup, boil a quarter pound of garlic cloves in a cup of water. Add honey and sugar to improve the taste. You can also make garlic tea by soaking a clove of garlic in a cup of water.
4. Cleanse and brighten your skin
Make a paste of finely minced garlic, olive oil, facial cleanser and sugar; massage into skin in circular motions, then rinse.
5. Use it as a Natural Pesticide
Mince three garlic cloves and let them sit in two tablespoons of mineral oil for 24 hours. Strain out the garlic and add the oil, along with a teaspoon of liquid dish soap, to a pint of water in a spray bottle and spray on infested plants.
6. Mosquito repellent
You can use it to repel nighttime mosquitoes by placing cloves where there are mosquitoes, or by applying extracts on exposed parts of your skin.
7. As Glue
Take the cloves out and crush them. Garlic glue can be made by rubbing garlic juices on paper or glass. Adhesives made of garlic have been used to repair glass in China.
8. Make a Surface Cleaner
Chop up a 3-4 cloves of garlic, and toss them in a spray bottle filled with white vinegar. Add a couple drops of lemon oil and – you have yourself a disinfectant spray.
9. Fish bait
Garlic’s strong smell may repel insects, but it has the opposite effect on fish. Garlic cloves are recommended by some fisherman as bait that can attract catfish, carp, trout, bass and other species.
Garlic has been used as an aphrodisiac since ancient times, and modern medical knowledge may have an explanation: it aids circulation, pumping blood to your extremities. This effect might even increase men’s endurance in the bedroom.
11. Road de-icer
In a pinch, garlic salt works wonders in de-icing roads, sidewalks, and other surfaces.http://beautyandhealtht.com/2016/11/06/11-unusual-bizarre-uses-of-garlic-outside-the-kitchen-number-7-will-amaze-you/http://i0.wp.com/beautyandhealtht.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/download-1.jpg?fit=288%2C175http://i0.wp.com/beautyandhealtht.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/download-1.jpg?resize=150%2C150Healthy Food11 Unusual,Bizarre Uses of Garlic Outside the Kitchen (Number 7 Will Amaze You!)
