My original idea was to use a small muslin bag to hold the clove for insertion, with a string attached for easy removal. However, that seems a tad problematic because muslin tends to be rather thick, so it seems to me that it would be much harder got the garlic to penetrate. So I took some advice from online to use gauze. We had plenty left over from Jim's wisdom teeth extraction, so I decided to try it. I also read online that cheese cloth would work well, but seeing as how you can't buy sterile cheese cloth, I thought the gauze would be safer. Below are my steps to making an easy to make and insert garlic vaginal suppository! (A much cheaper and safer alternative to Monistat by the way!)
|Step 1: Collect supplies: garlic, gauze, and kitchen string.|
|Step 2: Peel garlic and unfold gauze.|
|Step 3: Cut gauze into 4 pieces.|
|Step 4: Bundle up garlic in gauze square and tie with kitchen string.|
|Step 5: Trim extra gauze and string.|
|(Optional) Step 6: Soak clove pod in extra virgin olive oil to aid insertion.|
You can use this method as long as you wish without negative side effects. Hope this helps some ladies out there!
