Onion (Allium cepa)


Onion and garlic are similar in their action, though onion tends to be the gentler of the two.
They stimulate mucus secretion and act strongly anti-putrefactive.
They stimulate the heart and circulation and act diaphoretic, diuretic and expectorant.
An effective cough remedy can be made by cutting up an onion and covering it in sugar.
Leave covered overnight and use the resulting liquid as a cough syrup.
For ear infection, heat a slice of onion and apply it to the ear.
Onion juice stimulates the kidneys and helps to dissolve small kidney stones.
In cases of inflamed or diseased kidneys onion should not be used as they can be too irritating.
