Natural Earache Remedy : Onion Wrap

Natural Earache Remedy


Earaches can be very painful and come on very suddenly.
The reason for the pain is quite simple.
Through the accumulation of fluid and the clogged Eustachian tube, the pressure equalization in the middle ear can no longer take place. The Eustachian tube is normally filled with air, but when the air is replaced by the body through the liquid, the resulting pressure on the eardrum causes the pain.
The underlying disease is simple, most of the time. In principle, the ear has a cold and is plugged up. The cause is usually a virus. Therefore, antibiotics are not useful since they work on bacterial infections only.They eliminate neither the pain faster nor reduce the risk of complications.
If you are also running a fever and the wrap does not bring relief in a couple of days, do see your doctor though to rule out an bacterial infection.

How does an Onion Compress (Wrap) work

The objective of the compress is to get the onion fumes in the ear.
The essential oils of the onion have a strong expectorant, the build up of secretion is thus eliminated and the pressure and the pain subside.

What you need for an Onion Wrap

Of course onions. One or two are sufficient, the kind that make you cry, are the best! You also need a cotton sock or a cotton handkerchief or towel.
Peel the onion and cut it into small pieces. Fill the pieces into the (clean) sock or fold them into the handkerchief or towel.

Warm Wrap

The preferred application is a warm wrap. Place the onion pieces into a microwave until warm (times vary by Microwave and how many onions you have, start with 30 seconds or so). Make sure they are not too hot before placing on ear, you should only have one layer of cotton fabric between the onions and the ear, so the oils and fumes can reach the ear. Do not try to stick onion pieces into the ear canal.
Place the onions (in sock or cotton material) on the ear, wrap something around to keep in place, like a bandana, hat or scarf or another towel. It’s easiest if you lay down so the wrap will stay in place.
If you do not have a microwave, heat the onions with steam, do not place them in water or they will loose their oil.
Leave on ear for up to an hour!

Cold Wrap

Use a rolling pin or something similar, like a bottle for example, to crush the onions just a little to release the oils. Place them on the ear and secure with a headband, hoodie or lay on them.
Sore Throat
The onion wrap also works wonderfully for a sore throat, you will need more onions and a larger piece of cotton of course, the rest of it is the same as with the wrap for the ear.

Vicks Vapo Rub against Nail Fungus

Get rid of  Nail Fungus with Vicks Vapo Rub Vicks VapoRub

This is the perfect time of year to fight the toenail fungus you have since the sandals are in the closet and you can hide your toes in shoes and boots. But Spring and Summer will be here again soon, and for some lucky people, it’s always sandals and flip flops time. You want your feet to look nice, without ugly, yellow toenails, Vicks VapoRub can help with achieving that goal.
You can catch a toe nail fungus in many different ways, in gyms, locker-rooms, hot-tubs, saunas, steam-rooms, swimming pools and showers, just walking barefoot in those places can cause you to get a fungal infection.

Sweating in your shoes and socks, is also the perfect breeding ground for fungal infections. You are more vulnerable to a  fungal infection if you  have tiny cuts between the nail and nail bed, as this opens the area up for the fungus to thrive.  Hands have better circulation , so the fingernails aren’t as vulnerable to infections as the  toe nails are. Older people are more prone to get a nail fungus because their blood circulation isn’t as good anymore and they are less active.
As we age, our nails begin to thicken, making us more susceptible to fungal invasion. Men are more at risk than women, and the tendency can be passed on genetically.

Risk factors that increase the likelihood for nail fungus may also include diabetes, trauma to the nail, poor personal hygiene, athlete’s foot, hyperhydrosis, peripheral vascular disease, continual exposure to water and conditions involving immunodeficiency.

The best thing of course, is to prevent getting a nail fungus, so follow these tips:

  • Change your socks and shoes immediately after exercising and make sure your shoes are dry before using them again.

  • Wear flip-flops in public locker-rooms,  saunas , by the shower and around swimming pools.

  • Buy organic cotton or hemp socks,  they absorb sweat the best.

  • Treat athlete’s foot immediately to avoid infecting your toes.

  • Exercise to increase blood circulation to the toes

  • Keep your feet and toes clean and dry.

  • Avoid shoes that prevent ventilation of the feet.

If you did get a Nail Fungus on your nails, try Vicks VapoRub. Rub it in your nails 2 times a day. Use a cotton swap to do this, be sure you do not dip it into your tub of Vicks VapoRub after you touched your nail, you do not want to contaminate the Rub.
The infected part of your nail will peel off or becomes “unattatched” to the matrix (the layer of cells underneath the nail), so cut off as much as possible to prevent it getting snagged on something and ripping off. If the whole nail has fungus on it already,it may all come off. Be sure you sanitize the clippers  with rubbing alcohol to prevent reinfection. A fresh new nail will grow back , be aware, that this process may take several months.
I covered up my toe with a band-aid since it happened to me during the summer, (of course!) nobody could see it and it protected the nail from getting caught on something.
I applied the Vicks VapoRub to my whole toe nail, the infected part peeled and fell off, but the uninfected part became really nice and pink and healthy looking!
I am currently testing, if using it as a preventive measure  keeps nails from thickening, as nails tend to do as we get older. I will keep you posted!

If you use Vicks for a couple of weeks and see no difference, see a doctor.

Aluminum Foil Container

I have used Aluminum Foil for decades and never paid attention to this fact!
The wrap container, the aluminium foil comes in, has a neat little feature.
There are perforations on the sides of the container called end locks. When you push them in, they keep the roll secure inside of  the box.
When you want to tear off a piece now, the roll stays in the box!
Many other similar products, such as plastic wrap, also have this feature.
