GOOT Garlic Oil Salve for What Ails You

Posted By on January 5, 2008

Please be sure to read about the hows and whys to use GOOT. It really is a great remedy, and you will be amazed at the results. I will be amazed if you are not! Be sure to leave a comment when you have used it and share the remedy with your friends! They will really appreciate it!!

Goot Recipe
I will have you know that we have been using this remedy for a few years, and this is the first actual recipe I found for it. I am glad I found it, because my recipe is for olive oil and garlic, and I chopped it instead of putting it into the blender/food processor. I just leave the garlic chunks in mine, and I notice it does get stronger as it ages.

I love this list of all of the ailments this mixture can be used for. We put it into little noses today as well as into ears, and I can already see a marked improvement. We always rub it on the bottoms of feet and put socks on, because your feet are like a direct line to your bloodstream. Recently, I rubbed some on Isaac’s chest, and he coughed when it reached his nose… ahhhh! good! That meant that it works like Vick’s too! Great! We rub it across the bridge of the nose and the outside of the ears too.

[EDIT 2008] We all had Influenza this past winter, and Caleb had it for six weeks. I used GOOT on feet, in ears, up noses, on chests, behind the ears, and on glands on the face. It was such a great help! In some cases, certain symptoms disappeared completely within a few minutes. Poor Caleb spiked a fever in only an hour and was so very sick, but I kept up on the GOOT, and even gave him breast milk, which always gave a very marked improvement within the hour. Rubbing it on the feet and putting socks on the Littles was probably the most effective, if you don’t really want to try it. I just slathered them all up though!

[EDIT 2009] I know some of this is a repeat, but I have been asked how to or where to apply this, and I am going to tell you what we do:

You can make GOOT w/out the coconut oil, but I will tell you that using the Virgin Coconut Oil in it makes a huge difference!

Rub it around the outside of your ears, on the inside, and across your face, following your sinuses-around your nose too.
Get the lymph nodes below your ears on your neck and even under your arms if you want to.
I always do that, and then also on the soles of the feet. It is very quickly absorbed from there into your bloodstream.
I blend ours in the blender and I don’t strain it. :)
Putting it into your ear is a good idea. Put it into your nose if you are having sinus issues there too. I make sure I don’t put any of the garlic chunks into the ear or nose though. :)

Oh, and sit in the sunshine if it’s shining!!  That will do wonders too!

GOOT Garlic Oil Treatment
Anti-infective/Anti-fungal/Anti-parasites

MAKING GOOT

You will need:

3Tbs Virgin Coconut Oil
3 Tbs Olive Oil
3 Tbs fresh, chopped garlic

If the coconut oil is not liquid, you will have to warm it until melted. I warm it under hot water, not on the stove. Then you will add three tablespoons of olive oil and mix them together. Next, add three tablespoons of fresh chopped garlic. I chop up my garlic in the blender a bit with a bit of the oil, then add the rest of the oil and blend at high speed for two minutes. Another suggestion is to use a coffee grinder. Pour mixture through a screen to remove chunks of garlic that the blender may have missed. Pour into a wide mouth jar and label it “GOOT.” Place in a refrigerator.

Freshly made, the mixture is a milky color and runny. GOOT turns into a thick soft paste after one hour. After being in the fridge for several hours, it is just hard like a salve easy to spread.

Don’t worry if your GOOT melts. The oils will not stay hard when warmed. It’s fine. You can use it as the oil or you can put it back in the fridge and cool it again.

MEDICINAL PROPERTIES

GOOT, rubbed into the skin, transfers raw garlic oil directly into the blood stream. Raw garlic is a natural antibiotic that does not carry the bad flora that a Rx antibiotic will put into your intestines.

Apply on the feet of children or infants to fight infections. Rub on chest for chest colds, pneumonia or rub into nostrils for sinus infections. Place on cotton swab for ear infections. Apply directly to sores inside the mouth. Rub on Athlete’s foot or genital area for jock itch. Insert GOOT into affected area for yeast or other related infections. Apply on rashes any place. GOOT kills Candida, parasites, bad bacteria and virus by direct application.

In addition, it treats systemic infections by absorption through the skin into the blood supply and travels throughout the body. After two weeks, make a new batch of GOOT.

    Hi Jacque,

    I lost my recipie for GOOT and did an internet search and yours came up! I posted your link on my daughter’s website for her visiters to have also. My daughter is in treatment for Leukemia (almost done with treatment) and has had MASSIVE sinus and ear infection due to her low immune system. GOOT is new to us and we just rave over it! God bless you and your little ones!

    23 years after finishing the druglords school, I can say confidently without question that all that is needed is NOT manmade posins. Those do not help. Those should not ever be taken, not ever, not by anyone.(a lot of people get mad at me, so what. It is absolutely true. No question. No doubt. Proven over 1,000,000 times)…. (and NEVER disproven)…
    now,
    before i found out the truth, my family, ALL of my family, ALL of my church(as far as I know), ALL of my neighbors,
    simply DID WHATEVER “THEY” said to do. Took whatever “THEY” said to take.
    Never thinking(duh) that “THEY” were wrong. But “THEY” were wrong.
    whew, what a relief.
    viatmin aye (sic, mispelled and left that way on purpose) always is what is needed for eliminating entirely LUKE…… ….. …..
    never officially allowed, permitted or used.(simply because it’s not expensive enough. it cannot be patented).
    for proof, clearly, find out about the world’s most effective healer who used to live in the untied states and had clinics there in various places.
    (he simply tested a persons saliva and urine and checked the eyes, that’s all- by testing that anyone can do, he showed what was amiss, and corrected it by dietary means, using supplements if needed)
    btw, he was arrested 3 times, and poisened (sic again) 3 times by the druglords, and he almost died 3 times, but YHVH saved him, and he always gave YHVH all of the credit for the tests he developed to help people….
    j dot elohim at Yah who dot com can answer questions until he, too, is arrested. :) (THANK YHVH “they” cannot touch my soul!!! YEAH!!)…

    Thanks for this recipe & instructions…I have used just olive oil infused with garlic similarly for ear infections, but am looking forward –well, not to anybody being sick, but to trying out your formula. The EVOO/garlic combination really amazed me when I used it together with raw honey to treat an abscess on one of our guinea pigs after topical antibiotic ointment produced no results.

  7. SuperAngel says:

    I would just like to add that GOOT is a wonderful antibiotic. I had a huge gash on my toe because when I took a shower last saturday I dropped my Bath and Body Works Cherry Blossom shower gel on my toe. Didn’t notice I had a huge cut on it til later that evening when my toe was hurting like crazy. I went for 5 days with nothing on it, but just a wet washcloth for a bit one day. Then I noticed it was yellowy and took a closer look to see if it was infected. It was. So I took the scab off the cut and cleaned it out. Then I put some goot on it and covered it with some gauze. Two or three hours later, there was no pain, so swelling, and no ooze, all of which there had been for the whole 5 days before. My toe is now almost completely healed and it doesn’t hurt at all!

    So next time you have a painful cut or scrape or anything, put some GOOT on it and it will be better in no time! ;)

Growing up my Grams had alot of remedies and alot of these things are making the rounds again I see. My suggestion is to teach the little ones to wash their hands,make a big deal out of it. Teach them to sneeze into the crook of their sleeve and not to touch anything after sneezing except a bar of soap. I know this works.

    Thanks so much for the recipe. Quick q… where can I get coconut oil? Never even heard of that. I have terrible bronchitis right now and my cough is HORRIBLE. Is there anything else I can substitute for the coconut oil or should I run to the store in the AM? I’ve been trying garlic/honey mix and it’s just not helping. Thanks from the Barking Seal!

    [Reply]

  23. Jacque says:

    Marilyn, I am not sure what the origin is, but, before I ever heard of GOOT, we were using just the garlic with the olive oil.
    However, in reply to Connie Jean, you can use the olive oil in lieu of the coconut oil if you have to. It would be better than not using the GOOT at all.
    I have made it without the coconut oil, and I used just a tad less olive oil than I would have coconut oil. The benefits of using virgin coconut oil topically are many, but the antibiotic properties of the garlic in olive oil are so great that it is worth using.

    You will want to use virgin coconut oil in it when you can. There are many benefits to using it topically, such as lowering fever, strengthening your immune system, as well as it being anti-bacterial and anti-fungal.
    Here are some more topical benefits: http://www.thevirgincoconutoil.com/articleitem.php?articleid=184
    I also found this page, which has many benefits and great comment interaction with people who have used the VCO for many ailments: http://www.organicfacts.net/organic-oils/organic-coconut-oil/health-benefits-of-coconut-oil.html

    SO…. we are going to make sure we make it with the coconut oil. We get ours at Kroger, in the organic section.

    For your cough, you can also use honey, apple cider vinegar, or both of them mixed together. I mix them in a tablespoon, with equal parts and just take it together. Kroger also carries organic ACV, and you should be sure to use raw local honey.

    I also found out that AVC, Mixed 3 tbsp into half a cup of water and sipped slowly, cuts through the nasty stuff in your throat, and it’s also deadly to the strep bacteria. Other remedies include colloidal silver and cayenne pepper. I have not used the C.Silver, but to use the cayenne pepper, put 1/8 tsp into half a glass of warm water. Gargle until all but about 1/2 tsp is left, then swallow the last bit.
    More info about that here: http://www.earthclinic.com/CURES/strep_throat.html

    I am working on getting all of this info onto its own page for easy reference.
    Praying that you will be healed of your bronchitis.

    Hi, I live in England and have never heard of GOOT. I take garlic & echinacea tablets (Allerclear) at the onset of colds and flu, which I find work fast, and thought the GOOT would give it an extra boost, unfortunately I am sensitive to olives, will it work with just the coconut oil and garlic or is there another oil I could use to replace the olive oil? I love this friendly and informative website and have added it to my favourites :)

    I would definitely just use the Virgin Coconut Oil then. Don’t add any oils that are synthetic or corn-based for sure. I think just the VCO is fine. We use VCO for so many things in our home, and we love it!

    Jacque Reply:

    We do take fresh organic garlic, and we use it in a lot of our dishes. We also cook with only olive oil and coconut oils. We use olive oil on salads and coconut oil in about everything else. We take coconut oil by itself, in coffee, on our skin, etc…

    We keep GOOT in the fridge for the most part, but not all the time. We have not had it spoil.
    It will not stay firm in the cupboard. We do not strain ours, so it is not just oil, and we use it at room temp quite often.

    As for the GOOT acronym, I believe it is for
    Garlic
    Oil(Olive)
    Oil (coconut)
    Treatment

    in a puppy and in a kitten the garlic liquid by itself completely eliminated the parasites in 3 hours. this was verified by a veterinarian by a stool test 3 days later.
    in a person, black walnut has perhaps great effect(look up various ways to get it – tincture, hull, chopped, etc ), as well as garlic used often.
    and for bacteria/virus/mold/mildew/fungus coconut oil internal and external by itself works wonders. (see websites of doctors and scientists in india where it is very widely used. they explain how and why it works and how and why it kills every known bacteria and every known virus etc etc etc – even mrsa! $7 bottle wipes out mrsa that regular doctros charge $1100 plus to do(and they fail))
    veterinarians even used coconut oil in the puncture wounds in the eyes of a horse or other animal – it is so safe and totally effective.
    shalom !

    p.s. I asked the drug lords why they don’t advertise, publish or teach even the doctors in the untied states about the simple cure for leukemia etc……
    (for the question “why haven’t i heard about it”)
    they said simply – “we can’t patent it” (so they made it illegal for doctors to talk about it, to use it, or to cure anyone with anything natural)….
    if anyone in the untied sates (sic) says that their vitamin or other natural product helps treat or cure a disease, the fda seizes ALL of their product AND anything else that they want to. They seized ALL of the vitamin c in one city in texas recently… every thing in ALL of the stores there…. the public outcry was so great so fast to congress that the fda returned the products the next week…… but the monstor is growing….. the time is short…. in many countries you can no longer buy the products that you need – they are simply not legal to sell and no one has them there any more.

    I know I answered you via FB, but I wanted to go ahead and let oyu know what we did for our daughter with a toothache… and also, I hadn’t said that she had had the toothache for about 3w, and lost her tooth before we put the stuff on it…
    Our 11yo daughter just had a toothache/infected tooth, and we did use GOOT for it for the infection. Also, one thing that really, really helped her that we applied was Tea Tree Oil. If you get it on your tongue, it kind of burns, so make sure to just use a Qtip and put it around the base of the tooth. I used the GOOT first and let it set in a bit, and I also rubbed it onto her cheek outside where the affected gum was. By the next day, it was pretty much better, and she has had no pain in it since then.
    :) Hope it works!
    Shalom!

The doctors were amazed I haden’t been on them before. She is a huge proponent of garlic. HUGE. I’m definately going to let her know about this if she doesn’t already!

    Hello and thank you for such a quick response!

    I found this site while searching for natural ways to reduce nasal swelling. If placed under the nose would this have the desired result? My doctor said I had a decent amount of nasal swelling. I think this is in response to having been on Rx antibiotics and now my bodys immune system is deplete of resources to defend against irritants a we go into the Spring season.

    Thoughts?

    thank you

    Thank you so much for posting this recipe. I knew of the general principals, but did not know the ratios. I added a sprig of rosemary as that is supposed to be good for congestion as well. My eldest boy (7) had a nasty nasty cold with a fever that kept increasing. I put the goot on his feet then fed him a chicken garlic rosemary soup. This morning (the next day) his fever is nearly gone and his eyes look so much better!

    I was wondering if the GOOT is supposed to be terribly sticky. I came upon GOOT when looking for a remedy for the itching and burning from the sores caused by Hand, Foot, and Mouth. Its killing me. My son barely has it but I have it all over my hands, feet, nose, in a certain place Ill avoid saying as well as a few bumps in my ears and in my throat. My feet, hands and *whistle* are killing me. How fast does it work? Does the garlic have to be “fresh” or can it be that minced garlic you keep stored in the fridge? I hope so because that was what I had and I used it. Its terribly sticky and I cant keep that on my hands because I have to pick up my son all day (he’s 5 months) right now I have on rubber gloves so I can have it on for a bit but here in a minute Ill have to take these off and wash my hands. Im sorry so many questions, Im a newbie with this stuff and I really want it to work!

    Tami, I am sorry that I was unable to reply or to give you the info your were searching for. I researched HFMD after I read your comment, but with moving and my Father in Law in the hospital and other chaos, I was unable to post my info to you here. I hope that you got through it all right and are healing up from it by now.
    blessings to you and your family.

    Thank you for your GOOT recipe! I linked to your site from my blog today as I just made up a fresh batch for my family last night. We’ve been using this for 2 years now and LOVE it! It always helps tremendously. Thanks so much!

    I have some diced garlic in a jar will that work with olive and coconut oil for GOOT ??? Daughter has ear infection , sinus inction and strep throat all in the last month . We really dont like antibotics but use them . Want to go natural just needing help. Thank you for any help. Sue Stockman

    [Reply]

    Jacque Reply:

    Yes, Sue, that will work too. I hope your daughter gets well soon. The best way I found to clear up a sinus and/or ear infection it to make sure you put it up the nose and into the ears. Rub it across the face towards the ears and also on the lymph nodes under the ears down the throat. On the feet is a given, and you can also put it on the nodes under the armpits as well to help fight that there.
    :) Depending on her age, I have my children also take a clove of garlic, so if you happen to get some fresh, and she is able, try that. My 3yo son would swallow a small whole clove, but I know most kids don’t.
    Best wishes.

    Thanks a lot for this awesome recipe! My 2yo son has light fever and lots of running nose. We want to prevent ear infection. Few questions:

    a) How do you put GOOT on the nose ? On the outside or inside ? My son won’t let us put it inside his nose.
    b) How do you put GOOT for ear infection ? I’m assuming only outside right ? Little scared about putting it inside his ear. And I’m sure he won’t let us put it either.

    Jacque Reply:

    Sorry I didn’t get this sooner, Sam. I hope your little guy has recovered well by now!
    For future reference: You can use a Qtip or just on the end of your fingertip and let him sniff it up.
    For an ear infection, I put it all over the body as much as possible, and inside the ear. Also, I make sure to rub it onto the face along the sinus lines, up the nose, around the ears, and on the lymph nodes under arms.
    To put it into the ear, you can also use it on the fingertip and just smoosh it onto his ear.
    I could get my one son, at age 4, to eat a whole garlic clove. He thought he was doing some death-defying feat or something, so he did it and was always so proud of himself. Just info if that would work for you.
    :)
    Have a great day!

    Hi! I’m so very excited I found your recipe. I am 30 weeks pregnant and have a vaginal yeast infection. I don’t want to use the over the counter meds or an RX. Is this stuff safe to use internally while pregnant?

    Thank you so much in advance!

    Jacque Reply:

    Britni, I’m sorry I haven’t been monitoring these comments well. GOOT is all natural, and yes, you can take all of these ingredients safely while you are pregnant. Garlic and Coconut Oil are especially good for your health, and I would recommend taking them daily, pregnant or not. They are both natural anti-biotics, and even my young kids will take a fresh garlic clove if I feel they are coming down with something. It’s safe.
    Have a nice day.

  62. Britni says:

    Fantastic!! Thank you so much :-) I went ahead and decided to use it, using my best judgement that it’s probably safe. And it worked! I also passed the recipe on to my friend who is breastfeeding her 1 mo old. While on the road she was unable to breastfeed as often and developed mastitis. I suggested she use GOOT. She did! She said after a hour or so the flu-like symptoms has ceased and the pain gone. And she was back to breastfeeding her little one. Thank you so much, again!!!

    Jacque Reply:

    Wow! Britni! I am so glad to hear that!
    Yay for your friend and for you.
    Always happy to help make breastfeeding easier, for sure!

    Have a great evening!

    I have a question. Do you worry about botulism poisoning? I have heard about garlic infused in oil can allow the botulism bacteria to grow? Does the coconut oil counter act this? Thanks.

    [Reply]

    Jacque Reply:

    Hi Molly! I do not know the answer to that question, scientifically. I haven’t come across any mention of botulism in what I have researched. I will just say I’ve been using Garlic and Olive Oil for the 2yrs previous to adding the Coconut Oil, and I’ve used the GOOT recipe since before this was published, in Jan. 2008. I’ve left it out of the fridge, in any season, and I’ve never had any issues with getting botulism in our family.
    HTH Have a great day!

    Hi Molly, I looked this up and wanted to address it.
    I want to add a few articles so that people can check this info out for themselves if they are concerned.
    One is: http://umaine.edu/publications/4385e/
    another: http://garlicster.blogspot.com/2008/10/how-to-make-garlic-infused-olive-oil.html

    I also want to reiterate that we’ve used this for years and have had no problems or illnesses from it, and it was instrumental in helping us get over Influenza in 2008, as 8 of 9 of us came down with it.

    Another thing, watch for the garlic you use. We use organic garlic. I don’t know if that is preventative, but just saying it may be. We also use organic coconut oil, which is naturally anti-fungal, as well as organic olive oil.

    Thanks for bringing this to my attention, I appreciate your help and concern. We rarely have illness in our home, and we used this for years, as I said. Now, I use more Essential oils to prevent and heal, but a FAVE of mine is still GARLIC SOUP!
    Use 5 cloves of garlic, mix with potatoes and fave veggies, onions, etc, add a little cayenne, and you have a soup that will make you feel wonderful and knock out a lot of what may be trying to bring you down.

    Health and healing to you.

  65. Nancy Sperl says:

    I made some delicious garlic confit (garlic simmered slowly in olive oil until browned and yummy) and am wondering if the medicinal properties of both ingredients are lost to the heat, or if it would still be effective as a healing agent. I didn’t measure the temp as it cooked, but it was a gentle simmer, not a boil.

    Hi Jacque,

    I hope you and your family are well. I came across your site while looking for something for my 4 year old daughter who has Acute T Cell l Lymphoblastic Leukemia, currently undergoing chemo, for now.. she has had few side effects so far, but after the last intensive session she has had a fever for over 10 days and the docs say she has a serious infection though they cannot find it. She is very stubborn and will not eat any of the good stuff we know can help her. So I was thinking I could make this and rub it on her feet. Have you any experience of this with Leukemia? or serious infections/inflammations inside the body?

    best wishes to you
    Andrew

    Jacque Reply:

    Dear Andrew, I am SO SORRY I did not get this comment. I hope your daughter is doing well and on her way to recovery. I hope you went with your gut and put the GOOT on her feet or at least researched garlic and its effects on cancer patients and chemo.
    I do not have experience with Leukemia. I am very sorry for your situation, and I again regret not seeing this comment. I was very preoccupied with a divorce and my children and life when you left it.

    All my best to you and your daughter.

Welcome

Welcome. I'd like to say that I'm first a 40-ish yr old woman with all of my likes and dislikes, but let's face it, Firstly, I'm a mom to 9 wonderful people, young and old, from ages 23 down to 3. That's my main life: loving, walking with, learning with, teaching, and being driven crazy by my kids and their antics and also being amazed by their capacity to keep loving a person like myself. So, I'm a 40-ish home school mom - teacher of the last 6 of my 9 kids, hoping I don't screw them up too badly, but knowing that they are probably all so awesome they will turn out much better people than I am. For which I am very GRATEFUL. Namaste.
