How To Make Your Own Homemade Garlic Powder

garlic-and-garlic-powder

Garlic should be a staple in everyone’s kitchen. It has some pretty amazing health properties and adds a distinct flavor to a variety of dishes. When you purchase a lot of garlic bulbs, you don’t want the cloves to rot. If you are worried about rotting cloves, you can easily turn fresh garlic into homemade garlic powder.

 

What You’ll Need:

In order to transform your garlic cloves into garlic powder, you’ll need a few things. You will need a sharp knife to peel the cloves, a mandolin slicer (or very sharp knife and excellent knife skills), a blender/spice grinder, and a dehydrator (or you can use your oven at its lowest temperature).

 

The first step to making your garlic powder is peeling the garlic cloves. Then you need to slice them very thinly. If you have chef quality knife skills, thinly slice them with a sharp knife, but using a mandolin may prove to be much faster and easier. Once you have your thin garlic slices, it’s time to spread them out on your dehydrator sheets. If you don’t have a dehydrator, an oven at the lowest temperature will do the trick.

 

In order to keep the garlic raw, you need to keep your oven below 150 degrees F. If using a dehydrator, it takes about 12 hours, but it should only take a few hours in the oven. Spread the garlic slices evenly across a baking sheet and insert in the oven at the lowest temperature. Make sure to check your garlic slices frequently so that they don’t burn. You don’t have to worry about this in dehydrator.

 

Once you see that the garlic slices are nice and crisp, remove them from the heat and let them cool. After they have cooled, blend them in your blender or spice grinder for about 30 seconds. Store this powder in a glass jar and use to season your food.

    Q: I noticed the CARDIO-VASCULAR FORMULA contains garlic. My partner would like to participate in the detox program with me, but she has allergies to garlic that make her very sick. Her allergist told her that dried herbs have less of an effect because of the processing. Do you think it would be safe to take, considering this is the only compound in the program that contains garlic? I assume it is a small amount and may not have a negative impact.

    A:

    THE FORMULA IS BALANCED WITH OTHER HERBS AND IS NOT EXCLUSIVELY GARLIC, WHICH SEEMS TO BE THE PROBLEM. SHE'LL BE FINE!

    Q: I am interested in all the lessons you have tabled in the article section of Dherbs. On reading one article, I learned that pepper is a mucus irritant. I am concern because I have about read on some other blog about a doctor that cure cancer using pepper and garlic (credits to KELLY EIDEM). So, I have been eating raw hot pepper and garlic. So sir, I would like to learn if there is any side effects in eating hot pepper as you have mentioned that it's mucus irritant. Thanks. Your reader.

    A:

    Eating hot peppers has its benefits but excess consumption may eventually cause harm. It boils down to how often and how much of them you are eating. Organic doesn't make a thing necessarily good to eat. Organic peanut butter is better than regular or inorganic peanut butter but peanut butter is peanut butter and thus hard on the digestive process.

    Q: I have been dealing with a clogged milk duct, on my left areola. My 9 month old daughter, got a virus last Thursday, and was vomiting non stop for 3 hours. We rushed her to emergency, and they were able to stop the vomiting, and get her rehydrated. Then I got sick, followed by my husband. As a result of her vomiting, she didn't nurse as often, and I became engorged. I noticed pain, and a small lump with pus. I did some research, and figured it was a blocked duct. I massaged, applied warm compresses, tried to pump, and nurse, but it seems to have gotten worse. Yesterday there was a great deal of pus that discharged from the end of my areola. Upon massaging the area, the pus that was dislodged, created a hole there. The nurse is telling me I need to go to the Dr. and get antibiotics. I do not have a temperature, but I don't want things to get worse. I am still nursing, but it is painful. Do you have any suggestions as to what I can do to remedy this? I read that taking 4-5 cloves of garlic acts as a antibiotic naturally.

    A:

    Mastitis, is inflammation of the breast. Inflammation is caused by mucus, and mucus is the result of an acidic body predicated upon an acidic diet. A diet high in animal products, (meat and dairy products), as well as refined grains, starches, and effervescent acidic beverages can cause this. Many times, mastitis denotes that an injury is present. The pus actually serves to help out in the situation. Doctors will prescribe antibiotics for mastitis. Since when have antibiotics been able to get rid of mucus and pus? Never! So why would a woman take antibiotics for an inflammation problem? There are natural remedies for mastitis, just as there are for every other breast complaint. If you suffer from mastitis, especially while breastfeeding, start consuming Mulein leaf tea, (3-5 cups daily) Mucus Buster, (capsules and/or tea, 6-9 capsules daily or 3-5 cups per day). You don't want to breastfeed if pus is coming out of the nipples. Instead make an alternative milk (see our article Alternative Infant Formula Milk) to feed the baby while you are healing your breasts. Think positive too! Consider our "Mental Science Manual" e-book to help get and keep your mind right!

    Q: I have a sister who is an international flight attendant & doesn't want to take the pills for malaria because of side effects to the liver. Do you have any suggestions? She's been eating more garlic and wearing heavier clothes that cover her entire body when she is in Africa. Also, she never had bronchitis until recently, since she's been flying. Her doctor prescribed something and she's feeling much better.

    A:

    I WOULD SUGGEST SHE READ OUR ARTICLE â€THE METAPHYSICS OF SICKLE CELL CRISIS AND MALARIA†WHICH COVERS MALARIA. SHE CAN TAKE OUR PARASITE AND WORM CLEANSE AND REGIMEN AS WELL AS OUR BLOOD AND LYMPHATIC FORMULA AND USE OXY-DROPS IN HER WATER.

    Q: I have a question? I am hearing a loud cricket like song in my ears what can I use to stop it, my doctor told me there is no cure. Someone told me to use warm garlic oil, it drives me crazy at nights and all day I can hear it, hoping to hear from you soon.

    A:

    Sounds like an acute or heightened form of tinnitus.

    Try getting your ears coned a couple of times. Ear candling is very helpful in ear disorders.

    Also, give our eardrops a try. Pretty potent formula.

    And what you really need to do is detoxify your body.

    Metaphysically, ear disorders mean you are failing to "hear" something you need to hear or refusing to listen to so your ears are getting your attention so that you may tune in!

    Q: I just stopped taking my medication for high blood pressure (10mg of Lisinapril) about a week and half ago. I started your regimen of Circul-Aid Formula, Cardio-Vascular Formula and celery everyday. Will there be any after effects from my taking prescription medication for a long period of time? Are there any other healing regimens I could undergo along with the current (i.e. cayenne/garlic)? I did the Full Body Detox in January (excellent), and plan on undertaking that regimen again in July. My only concern was the lasting effects of the medication. Also, the article on High Blood Pressure was very informative.

    A:

    Drug residues will remain in the tissues for some time. The more you detox, take herbals, and eat raw fruits and vegetables (drink fruit and vegetable juice), drink good water, etc. The faster the drug residues will leave the body. Drugs are not assimilated in the body, because they are not organic, they end up lodged in the tissues of the body. When you take herbs, and eat fruits and vegetables, the tissues are cleansed and that's how the drug residues are eliminated from the body. You are on the right path, and I suggest you keep doing what you're doing. Don't even worry about the past drug medicine use. Stay in the NOW (moment), and focus on what you desire and you will be alright. A cayenne/garlic formula would aid you. Go for it! Make sure changes are made to the diet because it's the primary factor in HBP along with stress. Check out our "Dietary Choices" section under 'More Services' on the Home Page.

    Q: I am suffering from severe yeast infections since past several months, have taken acidophilus, grapeseed extract, garlic, etc. The condition has become very itchy, burning sensation while urinate, massive white clotty discharge. Also suffer from an ovarian cyst and bartholins cyst on outside of vagina. Just confirmed my pregnancy yesterday. Please advise me on what I should do. I have been a vegan for 5 years, no dairy; do consume soy. Also, would Kundalini yoga be beneficial or harmful for me throughout my pregnancy? What should be the proper daily diet? how often I should eat? how herbs should be taken? Whatever advice you have helpful, I am ever so thankful and humble. Peace, love and light.

    A:

    Try our CANDIDA BUSTER (3 capsules three times daily), SUGAR BUSTER (3 caps daily), and YONI FORMULA (3 caps daily). Bathe in hot water, sea salt, and 1 cup hydrogen peroxide (daily). Yes, yoga is great for pregnancy. Don't get off into Kundalini yoga, but PRE-NATAL YOGA! Avoid all sugars (except for Stevia) including fruit sugar until the situation is under control. Read our article â€PRE-NATAL HEALTHâ€! It has great information for you. It is located on our site under "Articles."

    Q: Sorry to bother you again but you are a wealth of knowledge and I appreciate all your information you give us. I am 44yrs old and have 20 pounds to lose. After I quit taking EHEDRINE I started gaining my weight back. I use to take EPHEDRINE to keep the weight off and no longer am able to order it in my state of Minnesota because it is banned. So I ordered some EPHDRA POWDER in hopes it would do the same for me as the ephedrine did but the ephdra powder doesn't SUPPRESS MY APPETITE like the ephedrine tablets did. I was wondering what I could add to the powder to bring out the appetite suppressant qualities in the ephdra powder. I have tried to brew it with my coffee and that hasn't helped either. I really would like to take this weight off and ephedrine was the only thing that helped me and I pray that your knowledge would help me to lose this excess weight. I bought your thyroid capsules and wondering how long before I will notice any energy difference. (I have a hypothyroid which is probably the cause of the gaining weight but the ephedrine helped me with that also). I pray you can

    A:

    You're giving external factors too much power over you. Things never heal us, only placate us. Truly answers lie within. What did Ephedrine have that God did not put in you? Forget about keeping weight off, instead focus on maintaining your desired weight. Why do you need to suppress your appetite? What you suppress in one area will manifest in another area. Suppression does not heal, only hides things and allows things to grow. Your challenge is to cultivate self discipline and maintain your desired weight. Read my article â€EPHEDRA†under articles. Ephedrine is a damn drug! Drugs don't heal, they only suppress! Nature (Ephedra) takes time! My knowledge cannot help you to lose weight, but only stimulate you into taking control of your own life and health, especially pertaining to weight. Your power lies within! It dos not come from outside of self! The Kingdom of God is WITHIN!

    Q: I want to know what is the difference in using the Wild Alum Root Powder for douching in reference to my prolapsed uterus problem vs. using the FEMALE HEALTH TEA Product that you sell. I would like to know so that I am able to know why and when to use a particular herbal product that will be better for my situation. Your clarity on this for my education will greatly appreciate. Thanks for your time and do have a wonderful day/evening upon receipt of this email. Thanks again for any clarity you can provide so I will better understand why you suggested and advised me to use the Female Health Tea.

    A:

    There's really no difference: it's just that wild alum is one herb (and a very good) and the tea I recommended has more herbs which have an affinity for female organs. Both can be used or one over the other.

    Q: Hey Dherbs.com I was wondering. Just the other night my friends baby had a temperature of about 104 and 105 degrees and she went to the emergency room and all those crap doctors gave was Motrin which is toxic and that did bring the temperature down but from a natural stand point how is the best way to bring down a temperature quickly and naturally because 104 and 105 is dangerous territory. Thanks for reading Peace Brother!!!!!!

    Q: Does using 3/4 tsp of senna powder with 1tsp of metamucil cause weight gain? I have been doing this regime for over 5 years every morning. My intestinal health is wonderful----and although I have rediculous eating habbits and have now started excercing properly at the age of 42, I was wondering could this have contributed. I weighed 195lbs 7 years ago and now I weigh 248lbs. I have a goal to drop 60 pounds by August of 2008. My height is 5'10"

    A:

    Senna helps one to release weight, not gain it! You should give our FULL BODY DETOX followed by our 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE a try!

    Q: How come I have never heard you talk about Deer Antler Velvet Powder? Is it because you are opposed to anything animal based? This appears to be an herb, to add to one of your Athlete concoctions.

    A:

    I think this is a product derived from the antlers of deer. Deer antlers are for deer, not humans! I can't get in on this trade. This industry should leave the deer antler alone, and start using human fingernails. Humans are always messing with animals and Nature. Man is a disease to this planet in his present mentality.

    Q: I have a question for you. Do you have any formula for this? This is for a friend of mines. He is 48 and has serious and at times debilitating meniers/tinitus. He loses balance, becomes ferociously nauseous, dizzy and cant stand etc.....he has to simply lay miserably in the floor until it passes. This sometimes is hours...sometimes it is days before he is near normal. He is kinda new at this alternative stuff but he is desperate because the "Docs" want to operate on both his ears with an 80% chance of deafness....no other alternative or treatment offered other than...."live with it or get under the knife"

    A:

    He needs to perform the Full Body Detox first and foremost. He needs to do a series (6 or more) of ear coning

    .

    After the FBD, he should take our BRAIN TUNER formula. I also recommend he takes Oxy-Drops (30 drops per glass of water).

    He needs to listen to that spiritual message coming from on high that he is ignoring. Let him who have ears (spiritual ears) to hear, hear!

    Q: First off, let me say, I am soooo happy to have caught the DHERBS advertising while listening to WVON radio in Chicago, IL. This is a very professional, informed and wholistic website. Kudos to the DHERBS team! Secondly, I currently don't take a vitamin/mineral supplemant, but was leaning to the Green Vibrance powder product (are you familiar with this brand), as I've talked to several health food reps, and they spoke of it's popularity within the health industry, the need for vitamins/minerals from a natural green source, and it's potency over pills, being that it's a powder and will digest better, versus pills which come from potentially harmful, scientific sources and, since they're in pill form, aren't absorbed by the body 100%. I was hoping to get a DHERB rep's opinion on GREEN VIBRANCE versus your mineral/vitamin supplemants. I hope you'd be unbiased, as you'd be commenting on a competitor product, as I truly am searching for the best product. I thank you in advance for your time and reply!

    A:

    I am delighted you enjoy the Dherbs website. Thank you for your words! Green Vibrance is a pretty good product and would supply you with much needed nutrition as mostly all green foods will. My only concern with the product (Green Vibrance) is the mixing of ingredients. I don't believe in mixing fruits with greens due to the mixture of acids and alkalines. A green food product should be TOTALLY "green foods" only and nothing else. Green Vibrance mixes citrus/acids i.e. grape seed extract, acerola berry juice powder with green foods in addition to bee pollen, royal jelly, wheat germ, etc. Also, as a vegan (strict vegetarian), I object to BEE POLLEN and ROYAL JELLY being used. These are from living entities (insects/animals). I also object to SOY as well which is in the product! Other than this, Green Vibrance is a great product that I would endorse as a source of organic nutrition and dietary fiber. Dherbs MULTI-VITAMINS AND MINERALS FORMULA and other products that are in pill form are in VEGAN capsules that dissolve 100%. At Dherbs.Com, we only use the BEST! Our product is 100% botanical! However, as far as absorption, NOTHING absorbs better than liquid and nothing is better as a source of minerals, vitamins, amino acids than FULVIC ACID which we sell as KHEMETIAN GOLD. This stuff is POWERFUL! 1000% pure nutrition! Do your research on Fulvic and Humic Acid and you'll see why I'm saying what I'm saying! So basically, Beloved, either way (Green Vibrance or VITAMIN B COMPLEX and/or KHEMETIAN GOLD) you'll be getting much needed nutrition! It's your choice! We value and respect free will and we don't believe in competition nor do we have to belittle, negate, or condemn another product or company to make a sale. Our primary concern is that people get what they need nutrition-wise and it doesn't have to come from us. Our goal is not to just sell products, but to properly educate people about human health and that's why we offer 175+ free articles in addition to 100+ products! Peace and Love --- and thank you for your interest in Dherbs.Com! p.s. - read our testimonials on our site and listen to (read about) the American people on what they are experiencing with Dherbs.Com products!

    Q: I just ordered the FULL BODY DETOX and I know there's a dietary regimen that I will have to follow. I was wondering if you would approve of a protein shake that consist of (raw hemp protein powder, raw almond butter, sea salt, flax seed, 100% young coconut water & meat inside the coconut, raw carob powder,) (optional soy or rice milk or soy or rice cream)

    A:

    Doesn't sound like it will mess up your FULL BODY DETOX. Go for it! But leave out the rice/soy cream! The rice milk is okay (but it is processed/cooked)!
