Garlic has one of the strongest flavour and smell. However, many of us do not mind that because of the delicious taste it brings to our food. Not only does garlic help in adding a zing to food recipes, it also has a lot of medicinal properties. Those properties make garlic one of the most versatile item to be used around the house. And in case you are wondering what unusual uses you can put some garlic to, here are some ideas you can try.

Massaging your scalp with garlic oil is said to help with hair-loss problems. The high level of allicin in garlic helps prevent hair loss and also fight dandruff. You can also choose to rub grated garlic on your scalp if you don’t want to apply garlic oil. The anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties of garlic also make it a good ingredient to add to homemade face masks and cleansers.

Use it to fight cold and cough

Garlic tea (water + grated garlic + honey +ginger) makes for a good home remedy to ease out cold and cough. Not only do the antioxidants help fight the illness, garlic also strengthens your immune system.

Make a pesticide using garlic

Garden pests hate garlic. So making a pesticide out of water, liquid soap, garlic, and mineral oil, is a good home remedy to keep the garden pests away from your plants. You can also use garlic to keep mosquitoes away. You just have to add some lemon juice to the mix and you are all set.
