  • 2-3 cloves garlic (crushed)
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil


  • Mix ingredients in a small bowl.
  • Allow to steep for 30 minutes.
  • Strain and begin using infused oil right away. Discard garlic (or use to cook if you wish).
  • Store your garlic oil in the fridge and make a fresh batch every 24 hours.


It is important to move the mixture to the refrigerator and replace at most every 2 days to avoid bacterial growth in the garlic oil. I prefer to make a new mixture each day as it will also be more potent!
You can warm the garlic oil gently as you would warm breast milk, by putting into a bowl or other container of lukewarm water for a couple minutes. Body temperature is the goal, just for comfort.
