Onions contain the same strong  antibiotic/ antiviral, and anti-fungal ingredient found in garlic, called allicin.

Yes! The “onion method” is a tried and true method that my family has used for decades for relieving even “major” pain from an earache and yep, even a toothache from time to time. My Husband can be a baby when it comes to pain…..but aren’t most men? Ha! Years ago when he was suffering with an awful ear ache, I called on my friend “Google” for help. Much to my surprise, after reading many articles, I read about using an onion. I tried the technique and to my surprise, it worked! After just a few minutes, he was talking and laughing and finally able to rest for the night. I can’t say it lasted all night but it did bring out the worst of the pain for a couple of hours at least. Plus, this is a GREAT natural remedy for kids! So I’m sharing the method with you today. I’m not making any promises that it will work for you, but I hope it does bring some comfort in the time of need. So get out your knife and onion and prepare to be amazed!

A raw onion placed next to a sick person could suck the sickness right out of them.

The Science…..

Science tells us that there is plenty of evidence to support this claim. Studies abound on the antibacterial properties of onion and its bulbous cousin, garlic. In fact, a recent study found that when combined with garlic and lime extracts, onions can help inhibit the growth of certain strains of E. coli which are resistant to conventional antibiotics.

Easy Instructions

  • Slice an onion in half.
  • Warm it up slightly in the microwave until it’s very warm (but not hot enough to burn!)(about 20-25 seconds)
  • Place 1/2 the onion in an old sock or wrap with a towel.
  • Place it directly on the infected ear.
  • Leave it in place for about 15 minutes.
  • Repeat as needed.

You can also put a few drops of onion juice into the infected ear.

So there you have it! The Power of Nature to cure an Ear Ache! Thanks for sticking around. I love you for it!
