Put Garlic Under Your Pillow and This Will Happen to You

Basically we are talking about a warm milk and garlic beverage. Boil one crushed clove in about a cup of milk for approximately 3 minutes. Nothing about the recipe is written in stone, so if you want to play with the garlic/milk ratio, have at it. Let the concoction cool, remove the clove, and add a teaspoon of honey. Drink your homemade sleep aid about 30 minutes before laying down for best effect.

Now, if your nose is wrinkled in disgust right now at the thought of drinking that concoction, know that there are garlic supplements you can swallow to avoid the pungent flavor. They don’t work as well as fresh garlic, but are better than nothing if you really don’t care for the taste but still want the benefits. Note that high doses of garlic can interfere with certain medications, and that supplements have varying levels of garlic in them. It’s best to speak to your doctor if you plan to use a supplement.
