8 Things You Never Knew About Garlic

5. The Ancient Egyptians loved it too.


Garlic was fed to the builders of the Great Pyramid to give them the strength and endurance to keep working. It is said that six bulbs of garlic were even discovered in Egyptian Pharaoh Tutankhamun’s tomb.

6. The health benefits are endless.


Instead of how can garlic serve us? The more appropriate question seems to be, how does it not? Garlic has been used to treat high cholesterol, coughs, flu, colds, fever, intestinal worms, gallbladder, liver, digestive problems, it reduces the risk of cancer, hypertension and so much more!

7. Bye bye pests!


Spritz the leaves of your rose garden with a crushed garlic and water mixture if they’re being attacked by aphids. Garlic is also known to repel mosquitoes, mites and fleas. 

8. Acne no more!


If you find yourself dealing with a bout of acne (or even cold sores!), simply cut the garlic clove in half and hold against the skin for as long as you can stand. The antibacterial properties of the garlic will help speed along the healing.
