Homemade Reed Diffuser Oil
I took a bite of raw garlic infused olive oil. It was homemade and sat at room temp for 3 days and then refrigerated. Scared about Batulism?
Very unlikely but...: Eating garlic-infused olive oil that is not refrigerated can cause botulism but this is extremely rare and the vast majority of the time will not be a problem. The fact that you only had a bite is also good as even if it contained some botulism toxin you would not have ingested much. If you develop worrisome symptoms go to the ER.

Is topically using coconut oil, castor oil, sweet almond oil, avocado oil & aloe vera gel (as homemade lash/brow serum) safe to use during pregnancy?
Pregnancy-safe oils: Castor oil and sweet almond oil may bring on early labor, if used earlier than term. Coconut oil and olive oil are safe in pregnancy. Topical vitamin E oil is felt to be safe, but may cause contact dermatitis in some people, as can topical aloe vera.
