GOOT: A powerful natural home remedy to fight sickness and infections.
Among the many medicinal food choices available, garlic is one of the best. It is a highly anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-inflammatory food.
GOOT is a topical treatment, absorbed through the skin into the bloodstream. It can be applied to feet, chest, throat, temples, or massaged all over the body. Test the oil on a small patch of skin to make sure there is no reaction. This treatment can be applied after a warm bath and left on overnight for maximum effect. Protect clothing, bedding, and furniture from this pungent oil.
6 garlic cloves
1/4 cup unrefined coconut oil
1/4 cup olive oil
Peel the garlic cloves
Gently warm the oils on a stovetop — coconut oil melts easily, do not overheat
Add all ingredients to a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth.
Strain GOOT into a jar with an air-tight lid.
Keep in the fridge for up to 6 months. GOOT can also be frozen in an ice tray for individual cubes.
Massage all over skin, and cover up with an old towel or some pajamas that you don’t mind smelling garlicky. Apply several times a day for intensive use during illness, or apply as needed during cold and flu season, after travelling, or other situations where the immune system is weakened. Wash any clothing or towels used with GOOT separately. It’s smelly, but it works!
