This is why you should sleep with a clove of garlic under your pillow

Placing a clove of garlic under your pillow has amazing benefits!

We have trouble thinking of a meal that isn’t made better by a clove of garlic or two. It’s a great way to add some extra flavour to a dish and it’s used all over the world. But did you know that garlic isn’t just great to be used in the kitchen but also in the bedroom?

Garlic usually isn’t helpful when it comes to ‘bedroom action’, but that’s not the kind of action we’re talking about.

Calming effect

You’re going to sleep much more soundly and calmly with a clove of garlic under your pillow! We realise this sounds a bit weird, but the sulphurous substances in garlic combined with the aroma have a calming effect on you. The smell of the garlic will reach through the pillow a little bit, which helps you to fall asleep more easily. Plus, it’ll also improve the quality of your sleep. In other words: you sleep quicker and deeper; what more do you want? Put one or two cloves (including peel) under your pillow and you’ll notice the effect. You’ll sleep like a baby! And don’t worry; your bedroom won’t smell of garlic when you wake up the next morning and neither will you. Everyone will still want to sit next to you! Worth a try?

Stomach

Garlic is great for other things as well. Having trouble with your stomach, like stomach acid? Drink a glass of water with a bit of fresh garlic added to it. It tastes gross, but it does help!
