    Onions taste great on hamburgers, chopped up in salads and on a variety of other foods. But they also work wonders for some of the body's most frustrating issues and ailments!

    From stuffy ears to painful bug bites, and everything in between - onions are truly a magic vegetable! So grab a bulb or two, and let's get to learning....

    Clear Clogged Ears

    Onions are great for loosening up clogged ear canals! All you have to do is slice the bulb in half, empty out the inner rings (until only the last two or three outside layers remain) and throw it in the oven at 300 degree Farenheit. Let it cook for roughly 15 minutes, or until the onion is warm and steaming.

    Then take the onion out of the oven, wrap it in a towel and place it over the clogged ear. The warmed onion will not only soothe the pain, but it should also unclog your ear and fight against a worsening infection!

    Soothe Painful Burns

    Onions are packed with vitamins and minerals like sulfur and quercetin. This may sounds like science jargon, but the chemical compounds in these components work wonderfully for treating even the worst burns!

    Whether it's an all-over sunburn or localized heat-induced burn, just apply a piece of freshly-cut onion to the area and relax as it takes away the pain. The onion also helps to start the healing process faster - so there's nothing but good news when it comes to onions and burns!

    Bust A Stubborn Fever

    Onion socks sound gross, we get it! But stuffing a tube sock full of onion slices and sliding it on your feet can actually provide long-lasting fever relief. Be sure to use white or red onions and place the slices against the bottom of your feet!

    The slices will kill bacteria and purify your blood at the same time! This combination can break a fever overnight and leave you feeling refreshed in the morning!

    Ease Bee Or Wasp Stings

    Bee stings and bug bites can be extremely uncomfortable (even dangerous if you're allergic) but they can also be resolved with a piece of onion. First, you'll need to remove the stinger and be careful not to poke yourself a second time!

    Then, you should take a piece of freshly cut onion and apply it to the area. The onion will get rid of the immediate pain and will provide lengthy relief from the bite or sting. However, if you're allergic to certain bugs and bee stings, be sure to seek immediate medical care! Trying an onion solution isn't worth risking your life!
