Garlic Oil

98

Description : Garlic is a sacred herb grown from the drop of nectar spilled on earth when Lord Garuda took away the pot of nectar from Lord Indra to save his mother from evil powers. It is still believed that because of the divine qualities of the nectar, Garlic has innumerable healing properties and was named as Rason, meaning King of Rasas.

Another interesting historical reference is that Garlic was grown in the hanging gardens of Babylon and it was considered as an herb of empowerment for which it was given to Roman soldiers before the battle. The traditional European fishermen used to wear garlands made with Garlic cloves to guard themselves from sickness and evil spirits.

Garlic Oil is derived from the crushed bulbs of garlic, Allium sativum Linn. They have a powerful and obnoxious odour due to the presence of disulphides. The bulbs contain 0.06% to 0.1% of volatile oil whose active constituents are propyl /-disulphide, alliin and allicin. The yellow oil of garlic is a valuable flavouring agent in perfumery, as insect repellant. Allicin present in volatile oil is a powerful antibacterial.
