    I’ve had success in using onions to clear an eye infection and ear infection.

    • The eye infection cleared up quite by accident. I was starting to get pink eye. That night as I was cooking dinner, my eyes got all teary as I cut the onions. The steam from the sautéing onions also got in my eyes. The next day the eye infection was gone.
    • I’ve also used warm onion juice to help soothe an aching ear.

      Puree the raw onion and strained out the juice. Put the juice in a dropper bottle. Do not use the microwave to warm up the juice. Put the bottle of onion juice in a pan of boiling water until the juice is warm. Put a few drops of the warm onion juice in the ear.
    • My favorite remedy for ear infections is the “Hear No Evil” by Trilight Herbs. I’m still using the 15 ml bottle I bought 15 years ago. A few drops goes a long way. I love it!
