Garlic has been used in my family to lower blood pressure and to maintain clean arteries or help remove mild clogging from the arteries. My grandmother used to make a tincture of garlic and called it “garlic essence”.

I thought maybe some of you would give it a try, so here goes the recipe!

Hungarian Garlic Essence Recipe

Take 2/3 pound (or 30 dkg) of peeled garlic and 300 ml of Ethyl Alcohol (96%).

Peel the garlic and press it through a garlic press, then put the resulting ground garlic in a glass container with a strong lid.

Pour the alcohol on top of it, then put aside and let it stand for 10 days, shaking it up a little every day.

On the tenth day you can drain it through a clean cheesecloth and then pour the fluid – the garlic “essence” – in a bottle that has a tight cap.

Other uses – How to get rid of pinworms naturally?
Garlic has been used for time immemorial to get rid of these parasites. There are various ways in which you can use garlic. Eat two cloves of garlic with warm water once in the morning and once at night everyday to get rid of the worms, or you can also try rubbing your toast with a clove of garlic. Garlic also expels gases and treats other intestinal ailments and purifies blood. Other than having a couple of cloves of garlic, you can make a paste of garlic, mix a little honey with it and have the mix two to three times a day for about three weeks. You can also add garlic as seasoning to your food. If you want to try an intensive treatment, alternate eating Garlic and Horseradish. The itching around your anus can also be alleviated with the use of garlic. You can directly apply the paste or juice of garlic on the and around the anus. Another way of applying the garlic is mixing a paste of garlic and petroleum jelly. Gently apply this mix on and around your anus. This will kill the eggs there and also bring your relief from itching. After this, make sure that you wash your hands well with soap. Also, change your bed sheets every day and wash them with hot water until the problem is solved.

Caution – Possible dangers
Boutulism is probably the most serious risk associated with garlic. Its sulphurous nature makes it a prime breeding ground for botulism (clostridium botulinum). Botulism is a nasty toxin that can result in major stomach illness sometimes leading to death. The worst danger from botulism comes if raw garlic is stored in oil at room temperature – or even for too long in the refridgerator. Never store raw garlic in oil at room temperature.
