  1. Finely shred 400 grams of garlic. Put it in a jar and fill with 1 liter of quality unrefined vegetable oil. Olive and sunflower oil would work great.
  2. Close the lid to the jar and leave it in a dark room at room temperature.
  3. Shake the jar once a day for two weeks.
  4. After two weeks, you should have a fairly potent garlic oil. Strain the liquid through 3-4 layers of gauze.


Simply massage this oil onto your painful places. Afterward, cover the area with a rag.

Garlic is supposed to improve blood circulation, which can help relieve pain around your joints. This oil will keep for about two months. Beyond that, we recommend making another batch.
