I have been using GOOT since this summer when I had pneumonia for a freaking month. I was so lucky to have an MBL Facebook follower mention this remedy to me. It is now my go to natural remedy. I checked out this recipe and modified it a bit, in hopes of intensifying the healing results. She used 3 cloves, I used 11, that is how I roll.
If you have a regular old virus, cold, fever, or flu, this is the stuff you need! And this is perfectly safe for babies, toddlers and kids!!
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup olive oil
10 or 11 garlic cloves, peeled
Throw everything into your food processor and blend that baby up.
It turns it into this very smooth, milky texture. When the oil is room temperature it is runny, but in the fridge it hardens.
Put a lid on your mason jar or container and it will last in your fridge for about a month.
When you are fighting a cold or infection, slather some on your feet and then cover with two pairs of socks. Use old socks, because you never really get out the garlic smell. If you can bear it, when you have a cough/sore throat, put some on your chest. If you have a sinus infection, put it in your nostrils. Ear infection, in your ear. I kid you not, I have been slathering it on my abdomen to help prevent an infection from my miscarriage.
And do not wash the socks with any other clothes. All your clothes will smell like garlic, TRUST ME!
So are you wondering why in the world you would put something slimy and stinky on your body instead of taking medicine? Well, for one it WORKS! And two, if you are fighting an infection and have to take antibiotic, they will kil ALL of the good bacteria in your gut at the same time and that will really mess with your health.
Garlic is a natural antibiotic. I don’t know how or why, but it is. When you put this salve on your skin, it goes straight into your blood stream to help you feel better.
For good measure, I always eat a lot of garlic when I am fighting something as well. I saute them in olive oil and then eat them with cheese and crackers. It is delicious!
If you are a little braver and want a garlic remedy to eat, try this one.
So are you a GOOT believer?!
