Garlic: Allium sativum (L.)
Why garlic? During the Egyptian era, garlic was considered a “plant of the gods.” While not used in perfumery, this is the perfect essential oil to keep on hand. Garlic oil is a must-have in every essential oil collection.
Quality Assured: Our certified organic garlic essential oil is responsibly cultivated and sourced from Egypt. Every batch of oil is Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth and produced without the use of genetic engineering, artificial fertilizers, or pesticides. The oil is water or steam distilled from the freshly crushed bulbs of garlic. Additionally, our expert aromatherapists here at the Apothecary Shoppe personally assess all of our oils—using touch, taste, smell, and lab analyses—to ensure that your essential oil is suitable for use and entirely free of adulterants.
Independent third-party lab reports including GC/MS and pesticide testing results are available upon request. Please send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org and include the essential oil Latin name and lot number; results include a comparative analysis with ISO and the Pharmacopeia when available.
