This is what’s great about onions! They can be used in so many ways.

Our body can take in nutrients and synthetic chemicals alike in a variety of ways. Eating, drinking, smelling or applying anything to your skin topically, also known as transdermal application. This opens a lot of understanding for most people. If you smell certain fruits, plants or essential oils for example your brain chemistry and nervous system can change quite quickly. You didn’t eat or drink anything but you can change your neurological and physiological state still.

This is what’s great about onions! They can be used in so many ways. Just cut open an onion and start putting your face all in that beautiful vegetable, you’ll see what I mean! Onions have internal effects for our health when they come into contact with our body without ingesting them.

So why cut up a piece of onion and put it in your ear while you sleep?

The phosphoric acid in the onion goes to work in your ear killing anything that may be a potential health issue. If you have ear infections try this, if you have ringing in your ear (known as tinnitus) try this, if you feel that you have too much earwax in your ear you can use this to help soften and remove some of that earwax.

The phosphoric acid and anti-bacterial properties of onions work to keep your ears healthy and prevent infection, or to help heal a current infection. If anything else you’ll hear better and reduce excess earwax buildup!

Natural remedies are the best when it comes to solving your physical woes. You don't need some manufactured, synthetic medication you cannot pronounce but you do need Mother Nature and she has got you covered. Onions are a wonder-vegetable and you probably never gave them any mind other than cursing then at dinner prep when they punch you in the feels. As you will see from this list, onions do wonders for your health, even when you apply them topically. Check out this list of onion health hacks and watch yourself get better faster than you can say "whats that smell?".

1. Cough No More

Onions make for a highly effective cough syrup (though you're breath probably won't be the greatest). Coughing? "Ain't nobody got time for that!"

2. Too Cool For A Fever

This is great if you have kids! A cold bath is a pretty traumatizing way to bring down a fever, especially for babies. A better way to get that temperature down is to put onion slices in their socks. After they're in bed with their newest organic footwear, put a cloth soaked in apple-cider vinegar on their forehead and explain to your SO that this is not a voodoo ritual. The fever should be gone in no time.
