An intriguing revelation about garlic suggests that its taste can be experienced by placing it under the feet. Although this may sound surprising, the phenomenon is attributed to the sensory perception of our taste buds. When garlic cloves are placed under the feet for approximately 25 to 30 minutes, they undergo a slight crushing, creating a sensation akin to consuming garlic.

It's important to note that while the effect may mimic the taste of garlic, it doesn't replicate the full experience of actually eating it. The science behind this lies in the absorption of garlic essence by the skin. When garlic cloves are rubbed or pressed on the soles of the feet, the skin absorbs the compounds, including allicin, responsible for the distinct smell of garlic. Allicin can penetrate the skin and enter the bloodstream, contributing to the sensory perception of having consumed garlic.


The placebo effect also plays a role in this unusual taste experience, as the strong aroma of garlic can influence the brain into believing that garlic has been ingested. While the scientific consensus on whether the actual taste is perceived inside the mouth is inconclusive, individuals are encouraged to try this at home to discern the personal impact of the phenomenon.


Beyond the intriguing taste experiment, there are additional benefits to placing garlic under the feet. It is known to provide relief from foot fungus when rubbed on the soles, and in winter, combining garlic with heated mustard oil and applying it under the feet helps maintain body warmth.
