Garlic (Allium sativa) is a plant with long, flat grass-like leaves and a papery hood around the flowers. The greenish white or pink flowers are found grouped together at the end of a long stalk. The stalk rises directly from the flower bulb, which is the part of the plant used as food and medicine.
Organic Garlic Oil is steam-distilled from the crushed bulbs of the Allium Sativum plant. The yielded oil carries a yellow to orange color with a potent characteristic aroma. Bulk garlic oil is sought after throughout the food manufacturing industry for obvious flavor enhancing purposes. Given this oil carries such a strong garlic flavor and aroma, a little of this desired essential oil can really impact the end result of a dish or formulated shelf-stable product. Aside from food and beverage manufacturing, garlic oil carries antimicrobial and potential anti-inflammatory properties, increasing its popularity in nutritional supplements as well as in cleaning products, both for household or commercial applications. Essential oils are highly concentrated and should be handled with care.
