Many people know about the use of garlic in the kitchen and although some of them may not like its flavor, most of them are aware of its medicinal uses.
Garlic helps in the treatment of colds, cough, sore throat, sinus infections etc. When it’s applied topically, garlic can treat skin infections. In chronic conditions, garlic reduces blood sugar and blood pressure. It is also effective in the treatment of malaria and stimulates the immunity in people with AIDS.
Fresh garlic has more powerful properties, but some people cannot eat it raw, since its taste is too strong. In these cases, you can chop it finely, cook it a little bit or simply make garlic honey!
Garlic honey is very easy to make and you can use it to treat a medical condition or add it into your meals.
Clean and cut a whole garlic head. Minced garlic will release allicin, the most powerful substance in garlic. The allicin is formed when alliin reacts with the enzyme allinase when garlic is chopped or chewed. Once you have finished chopping the garlic, put it in a clean bottle of half a litee.
Add the honey. Use raw organic honey. Leave it to rest for some time. Use a knife or a stick to pop the bubbles air, so you must pour it slowly.
Close the bottle. Keep it in the pantry for 2 to 4 weeks. After the time passes, you can use the honey with or without the garlic for a period of 3 months.
Consume it using tablespoons or simply add it into tea if you have a cold, cough or any other type of pain.
