Garlic is a strongly scented perennial herb with long, flat, green leaves, small white flowers and a bulb of compacted cloves. The essential oil is steam-distilled from the crushed bulbs.
Garlic is unique among essential oils in that it is seldom used externally, more normally it is ingested orally or anally in gelatine capsules/suppositories. Garlic is nature's antibiotic, counteracting most infections.
