Garlic Oil Origin and Extraction

Garlic Oil is derived from crushed garlic cloves.  When crushed, the cloves release allicin, the active ingredient in garlic. Allicin also gives garlic its pungent odour. Some methods of crushing the garlic clove act to remove the odour, but this tends to make the allicin less effective medicinally.

The botanical name for garlic is Allium sativum.

Essential Oils are natural, contracted oils that have the fragrance of the plant from which they originated. Most typically, the oils are extracted from the plant through distillation. In many cases, the distillation process involves the use of steam.  As steam passes through the plant’s stems, seeds, flowers or leaves, it assists in vaporizing the volatile compounds.

While essential oils have various uses, they have a long documented history of medicinal value. Essential Oils can support overall health, act as a treatment or remedy for various medical or psychological conditions or help prevent infections and illness.

Essential Oils should not be used on animals as they can have adverse effects.
