We now recommend that garlic oil be used very soon after making. New information has become available about the danger of botulism. For more information see the “Health Canada” page of the Canadian Government web-site.
Please amend your books as follows:
“Natural Medicine in the Tropics I: Foundation Text”¯ page 72
“Natural Medicine in the Tropics II: Seminar Handbook”€¯ pages 8 and 23.
Take one part of crushed garlic and mix with two parts of vegetable oil. Mix thoroughly. If you have no reliable refrigerator, use it within one day. If you do have a good refrigerator, use within one week. We no longer recommend keeping garlic oil for one month because of the danger that bacteria may produce the botulism toxin. Botulism intoxication causes paralysis.
Please be sure to teach the new version, and inform as many former seminar participants as possible.
