GOOT recipe and link

I'm sorry I didn't get to this earlier.

Here is what I did:
I brought my Extra Virgin Olive Oil to room temperature. When it was liquid, I poured 3 tablespoons into a small sauce pan to which I added 3 tablespoons Extra Virgin Coconut Oil and 3 tablespoons chopped fresh garlic. When the coconut oil was melted, I poured the mixture into my Vitamix and processed it for a minute or so to infuse the three things together. I poured into a small bowl (like a rubbermaid container) with a lid and put it in the fridge. After several hours it is now more of a hard salve that can be rubbed or spread as needed. I found that it melts very easily as you apply it to little feet. Oh and the recipe says to strain the bits of garlic but I didn't. And it supposedly lasts for two weeks.

Here is the link my friend sent me Walking Therein: GOOT

BooBear and Tailor have tried GOOT and both tell me "I don't like how it feels on my feet and the stuff is stinky but I really like how much better I feel this morning"

I think the key is applying it at the first signs of a cold. Do check out the link if you are interested in the GOOT. There more links on the that page about GOOT. If you try it, let me know how it works for you.


  1. Tess, missed you at church today... the rest of your crew said Mantha was still feeling poorly. So sorry! I, thankfully, don't have any sick kids right now, but I am very interested in the goot! I will look into it and let you know when I try it! Praying you all are better soon.... I miss my Tess!

  2. I miss you, Holly!! Mantha is actually doing so much better but she has a bit of a cough lingering and after debating, John and I decided to keep her home just to be safe. I hear your little guy is walking now!!
    Hugs to you and your family!
