Onion is one of the most flavorful vegetables that exist. Its strong and pungent smell isn’t loved by everyone, but it gives a pretty nice taste to our meals. Besides its flavor, onion is rich in essential nutrients such as potassium, phosphorus, vitamin C and magnesium which can protect your health and resolve many problems. For example, using a raw onion on your scars can eliminate them and improve the quality of your skin.
Onion extract is great against keloid and hypertrophic scars and can eliminate them in 6-8 weeks. Here’s what you need to do:
- Dish soap
- Coffee filters
- Distilled water
Mix 10 gr. of dish soap with 3 gr. of salt, then chop the onion to pieces and put it in one container with the mixture of soap and salt. Stir well, then put the container in hot water for 15 minutes, then mix everything in a blender and strain the mixture over a new container. The mixture will foam while the extract drips into the container – once you’re done, apply the extract on the affected areas twice a day either alone or mixed with a moisturizer.
If you’re using the mixture for the first time, we suggest doing a test on a small patch of skin first to see if you’re allergic to the onion. If everything goes well, you can safely use it. Make sure to keep the scarred area always hydrated and use natural moisturizers such as olive or coconut oil for best results.
