I've had some busy days.My mom is home for summer, and that means a lot of driving for me. So, I chose to make something simple this week, an onion. This weeks colors are some I don't use much, they have never been among my favorites, but to my surprise they work well with the onion.
Did you know that since before pre-historic time the onion has been told to have healing properties of various disorders? Let me tell you some.
Indigestion - Treatment : 2 large onions cut into slices, boil in 1 liter water some hours. Drink one glas decoction twice a day.
Cold/cough : Cut an onion in two halves and put them at your bedside table. Make sure you breathe in the smell during the night.
Anemia, arthritis, overexertion : 100 grams chopped onion in 1 liter white wine 48 hours, add a tbl spoon honey. One glas extract twice a day.
The most peculiar advice, old english. If you have toothache, do this : Take the peel from one onion and put it in a thimble (??), put the thimble onto one of the large toes of the patient. Don't you think this would be of great help? LOL.
I have this little booklet all about onions. There is alot more advices,, but I can't write them all. I love all kinds of old advices, proverbs and weather signs. There is much wisdom and some completely useless things as well. It's very funny to read though.
Thank you all for your lovely comments on last weeks post, I had a great time reading them all. Thanks also for visiting now, I hope you'll learn something important. LOL.
