Do you sleep with a clove of garlic under your pillowHowever silly it might seem, it is said that keeping a clove of garlic under your pillow has great benefits. For one, you get to fall asleep very easily and your sleep is much more sound and deep. When you get up in the morning, you will feel refresh. No, it is not all that silly; there is a scientific explanation to it. It is believed that when the sulphurous substances in the garlic combine with its aroma, it has a soothing and calming effect on us. The aroma reaches to us bit by bit through the pillow and thus helps in getting a night of good sleep. One or two cloves with their peels on would be sufficient to create the magic. No fear, there won't be any smell of garlic in the room, when you wake up the next day in the morning. Want to give it a try tonight.
