Unfortunately, garlic cream that you make in your very own kitchen isn’t something that you can take orally. That’s because it’s so powerful that it’s not unlikely for your stomach to end up irritated.
Actually, if you have sensitive skin this DIY garlic cream may cause some form of irritation. But if in the past you have tried rubbing fresh garlic or garlic oil on your skin and there was no unfavorable reaction, there’s no need to worry!
Still it’s a good idea for you to consult your doctor before trying any home remedy, including this so powerful garlic cream that’s made from scratch and contains nothing but all-natural ingredients.
Here are the very easy steps to follow to make your very first batch of DIY garlic cream:
Get your hands on 5 fresh garlic cloves. Carefully peel them and then finely mince afterwards.
In a small saucepan with a long handle, combine minced garlic with 5 tablespoons of argan oil. Using low heat, allow the ingredients to become warm — it should take no more than 2 to 3 minutes.
Allow to cool for a while.
While waiting for the garlic and argan oil mixture to cool, reach for a pot that’s large enough to accommodate the small saucepan with a long handle that you just used.
Fill 3/4 of the pot with water and allow it to boil using medium heat.
When already boiling, add 1 cup of coconut cream, 5 drops of tea tree oil and 5 drops of peppermint essential oil to the saucepan containing the garlic and argan oil mix.
Carefully immerse half of the saucepan with a long handle into the boiling water in the large pot. Using a wooden spoon, gently mix all of the ingredients until you end up with a very smooth consistency.
Once the mixture is already smooth, switch off the stove and allow it to cool on your countertop.
In the meantime, clean a small jar with a cover. It should be large enough to accommodate your DIY garlic cream.
Transfer cooled garlic cream to it, place the cover on and keep in the fridge.
That’s it — you just made your very first batch of homemade garlic cream! You may apply a little of it on minor wounds or skin infections once or twice a day.
