For years, every Fall my children and I would get nasty colds. No medicine ever seemed to help. Instead we’d pass the cold back and forth for a good few weeks. Finally, (I don’t remember where) I heard a home remedy people use when having colds/flu. You take a few onions, cut them in half or in a few pieces, than place them in open jars or bowels. Leave the onions near whoever is sick, and place them next to the nightstand overnight. The onions will absorb the sick germs, instead of breathing them back in, or passing them to someone else. I decided to try this, and it worked! I have been using this home remedy for years now. Over the years I’ve talk to people who also use this home remedy, or say their Grandparents did. I’ve also spoke with people who’ve never heard of this, but tried it when sick, and also said it worked for them.
DO NOT EAT THE ONIONS AFTER THEY’VE BEEN LEFT OUT! THROW THEM AWAY!
Onions are full of bacteria once cut and left out.
