As some of you may know, onions are much more than a cooking ingredient. Au contraire: they are real all-around talents. For indeed: onions have awesome health-beneficial and antibiotic properties.
Here are 8 examples of what onions are capable of when it comes to your health and wellbeing. These are worth their weight in gold in a pinch.
1. For a cold
But first, a classic: because of its effectiveness this one is a no-brainer. Next time you have a cold or the flu, boil some water, throw some onions in, and let them simmer. This onion tea tastes admittedly not so delicious but helps in less than 2 hours. It relieves pain and acts as an expectorant (loosening phlegm). Whoever needs a bigger dose should just eat raw onions. But try some onion tea, it also helps to free your airways too.

2. For ear aches
Whoever has had an ear ache knows how excruciating it is. The pain penetrates deep into your head and nothing seems to help. But he or she who sticks a piece of onion in their ear will soon feel the pain fade away. Onions weaken inflammatory foci in your ear.
