The mere mention of garlic conjures up images of dracula and vampires. So imagine the reaction I got when I had a discussion with some friends on the topic of Cioccolatina garlic shampoo bar.
Garlic contains selenium which when taken internally, helps to prevent blood clots. Selenium is also useful in the fight against dandruff. Another natural component found in garlic is allicin. Allicin is a great anti bacteria component which is also attributed to the strong garlic scent. Sulphur is also present in garlic. This helps to nourish hair, finger nails and skin.
For a simple tea, I crush equal amounts of fresh garlic and ginger, pour hot water over it, cover for 5-10 minutes and drink (without straining). This helps to soothe any sore throat.
Another natural alternative to cough mixture is equal amounts of crushed fresh garlic with honey. This should be prepared as and when needed.
So next time you go shopping, pick a bulb of garlic for your kitchen cabinet.
