Use an onion to naturally accelerate the healing time of minor wounds!
I came across this remedy thanks to my mom! I was staying with my parents during a family vacation and I had cut my finger with a knife (it was bleeding quite a bit but it wasn't deep enough to need stitches). I asked my mother if she had a band aid, and then she told me she would give me something better, onion skin! I told her that I didn't have time for her crazy talk. I didn't think she was making much sense until she kept insisting and got her way (as all mothers do lol) she gave me the onion skin, I put it on the wound then placed a band aid over it. Much to my surprise, by the end of the day (I had it on about 12 hrs) It had sealed up and almost completely healed! I was so weirded out by it since I thought it was ridiculous to begin with! I was pretty impressed and thought I would share :)
Btw, pretty sure I don't need to mention this, but it was a minor cut... I didn't need stitches, If you think you need stitches, do not substitute a doctor visit for onion skin...
What you'll need:
- 1 Onion
- Knife to cut your onion
- Band aids
Just cut your onion in half and remove the hard shelled skin off of it. You will see that once you peel a couple of the onion layers back, they will have a thin skin attached to them that you can peel off.
Go ahead and peel off a piece of it, cut to the desired size, and place on your minor wound. Proceed to wrap a band aid around it and let the healing begin!
