Onion: Skin Benefits

This humble vegetable can provide you with healthy and glowing skin, thanks to the presence of rich amounts of antioxidant vitamins A, C and E. Both consumption and topical application of onions can provide numerous benefits to your skin.

  1. Anti-ageing Benefits:

Onions possess enormous anti-ageing benefits. The antioxidant vitamins A, C and E fight against the damage caused by harmful UV rays as well as prevent free radical damage which is responsible for causing premature ageing of our skin. Onion is one of the richest sources of quercetin, the most powerful antioxidant that can keep your skin wrinkle-free. Vitamins and sulphur, on the other hand, protect your skin, and keep it soft and supple. The anti-ageing qualities of onion can be attributed to the presence of sulphur-rich phytochemicals. Massaging your skin with fresh onion juice helps increase blood circulation and improves the overall appearance of your skin by imparting a more youthful and radiant appearance.

  1. Treatment of Acne:

The anti-microbial, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory qualities of onion can work wonders on your skin. It is a powerful antiseptic which protects your skin from acne-causing bacteria and other skin infections. Onions can be used in the treatment of acne and pimples. For this purpose, you can mix 1 tablespoon of onion juice or extract with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and apply it on your face. Leave it for 20 minutes and then wash off. Apart from topical application, regular consumption of onion can also give you miraculous results in case of acne.

  1. Lightens the Complexion:

Onions help in purifying your blood and supply your body with flavonoids which assist Vitamin C in its important functions. The consumption of onions can keep your skin healthy and glowing. You can prepare your own face mask by combining 1 ½ tablespoons freshly extracted onion juice with 2 tablespoons gram flour, ½ teaspoon milk and a pinch of nutmeg. Mix all these ingredients to form a thick paste and add some more milk if required to reach the desired consistency. You can also add few drops of lavender essential oil to beat the smell of onions. Apply it all over your face after cleansing and leave for 15 to 20 minutes or until it dries. Dab a cotton ball in milk and remove the pack by massaging in gentle circular movements. This will exfoliate the dead skin cells as well as lighten the skin tone.

  1. Treatment of Dark Spots and Pigmentation:

Onion juice is excellent for getting rid of dark spots and pigmentation. The rich variety of phytonutrients and antioxidants in onion nourish your skin while removing skin impurities. You can prepare a face pack by mixing equal quantities of onion juice and fresh yogurt. You can also add a few drops of any essential oil for a pleasant aroma. Massage your face with this mixture, using gentle circular movements for 10 to 15 minutes. This should be done daily for best results.

  1. Treatment of Stings and Bites:

Onions can be used to soothe stings and bug bites. All you need to do is place an onion slice on your sting or bite. The anti-inflammatory properties of onion help in reducing the burn, itchiness and swelling caused by insect and bug bites.

Onion: Hair Benefits

The benefits of onion do not end here. This layered vegetable is great for your hair as well. Onion juice is often used as a remedy for various hair problems. Some of the ways in which onion can benefit your hair are as follows.

  1. Treatment of Thinning Hair:

Onion is quite helpful in treating thinning hair. All you need to do is juice an onion in a juicer and add ½ teaspoon of honey to it. You can add any essential oil of your choice to suppress the smell. Apply this mixture all over your hair or onto the portions that appear thin. Leave it overnight and do not cover your head. Shampoo your hair the next morning. This should be done at least once to thrice a week for best results.

  1. Treatment of Hair Loss and Dandruff:

You can prepare a hair mask using onion to combat hair loss, dandruff and an itchy scalp. Onion juice is particularly beneficial for increasing the length of your hair. All you need to do is grind or mash an onion and strain it through a grinder to obtain the juice. Mix this juice with equal amounts of olive or coconut oil and apply it on your scalp and hair. Cover your head with a shower cap and leave it for 2 hours. Rinse it off with a shampoo to get rid of hair stickiness. This hair pack will improve the ability of your hair for re-growth besides imparting a shiny, glossy look to your hair. It should be applied twice a month for best results.

  1. Maintains Hair Color:

You can apply onion juice on your hair to impart a nice coppery shade as well as to make your hair glossy. However, if you wish to maintain the natural color of your hair, you can blend onion with adequate amounts of mustard oil and apply it on your hair. Mustard oil will suppress the color lightening effect of onion.

  1. Natural Conditioner:

To condition your hair naturally, you can apply a mixture of onion and fenugreek paste on your hair. Keep it for half an hour and wash off with a mild shampoo.

How to Select and Store?

Selection: Both dry and green onions are available all year round. While buying onions, choose the ones that are clean, well-shaped, with no opening at the neck. Their necks should be tightly closed and should not have a thick woody centre. They should be firm with crisp, dry, bright and shiny outer skin with a crackly feel. The base should be whitish in color, measuring about 2 to 3 inches. Avoid the ones with soft spots, damp and moldy patches as this is an indication of inferior quality. Sprouting onions should be avoided as this indicates age and poor storage. However, if sweet onions have been sprouted in your pantry, you can use the green sprouts as a substitute for scallions. There should not be dark powdery patches under the skin as this is an indication of mould which may spoil the flesh. They should have a mild smell.

Storage: Dry onions can be stored for several months. Whole onions should be stored in a cool, dry, well-ventilated place where they will last for about 4 weeks. Avoid refrigerating them as this will turn them soft. As they absorb moisture, they should not be stored below the sink. Often partial onions remain after the preparation of meals. These onions can be stored for reuse. They should be wrapped in a plastic or placed in a tightly sealed container and refrigerated for use within 2 to 3 days. Besides proper storage, onions should be inspected regularly. Slimy or discolored onions should be discarded. Sprouting onions can be eaten after chopping away the green portion. Spring onions can be refrigerated for up to a week.

Tips for Usage (Cooking/Eating):

Onions are one of the most versatile vegetables that can be eaten both in the raw and cooked form. They can impart a unique flavor to any recipe. They can be cooked in various ways such as boiling, sautéing, frying or caramelizing. Given below are some tips for using onions.

  1. Raw onions can be added to salads. You can cut onions in rings and add them to chopped tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots and beets tossed in lemon juice. Spring onions can form part of green salads. You can prepare a classic Italian salad by combining sliced onions with tomatoes and mozzarella cheese, tossed in olive oil.
  2. Chopped or sliced onions can be fried and used as a base for pasta sauces, stews and soups. Onions can be fried in butter or margarine over medium heat for about 3 minutes until they turn crispy and golden brown. They should be removed with tongs and placed on a plate lined with paper towels.
  3. Chopped onions can be combined with tomatoes, avocadoes and jalapenos to prepare a guacamole salsa dip. Even plain rice can be topped with green onions and sesame seeds to make it more interesting.
  4. Sautéed onions can enhance the flavor of any vegetarian dish. Sautéing enhances the texture and flavor of onions. This method involves browning the onions which creates a rich flavor. These can be added to sautéed veggies, soups and pasta dishes.
  5. Sweating involves gently cooking the onion to make it soft, sweet and reduce the sulphur content, imparting it with a milder taste. These onions are added to dishes such as risottos, rice pilafs and braised meats to impart a natural sweetness.

Ty, I know I have read/heard somewhere that some people get very depressed round about the holiday season. I am asking you kindly, could you perhaps do a post on it (pardon me if I am being too forward). I am just shocked by the high number of people who seem to be at their wits end.

3:00 p.m. Enemies plans to be destroyed, people battling depression/confusion

6:00 p.m. Thanksgiving for all that we have and all that is on its way

This morning I heard a lady called into a radio station and said she was so depressed that she is thinking of committing suicide. Last week a girl of only 17 committed suicide. People are so frustrated and do not know how/where to get help

Ty re the taking of my purse. Our office does not see customers per se. The person that took my purse was either someone visitor or someone requested that person as something was wrong with their account. I am just peeved that the person just ‘visiting’ had to take a parting gift. Sigh.

(((((Teach, Cami, Nunu, Ty, Yazzy, Kia, Tiy))))) how mi a call a nuh baddy naah ansa…Hany way, mi will gwan post tings fi unno read when unno come back…

Teach, has a saying that she always uses, that says, nothing happens before its time and another that says, nothing happens by chance.

Yesterday, my purse was stolen from my desk and I was upset. So upset that I wished that every bone in the thief’s right hand be broken. I was livid as it is the week before pay day so funds ‘thin out bad, bad’. Here came Mr. Thief who stole every red cent and dumped my purse in the male restroom of a near by business place. I got back all my essential cards, identication etc.

I have been wrestling with the thought and I keep thinking, it is only money, money comes and goes.This morning on the radio, I heard the announcer telling the Rockafeller story, that while he (Rockafeller) was in the hospital, near death’s door, a woman went to his bed-side and told him she wished she had his money. Rockafeller, looked at her and said, I wished I had your health. I do not know if this story is true or not, but it lifted my spirits and for a while the money that was stolen was insignificant.

I have learnt right here on ES how to count my blessings. Sometimes I get carried away and think I am not blessed because I dont have this or that. However, I have good health so does my family. Young genes runs in my family (mi people dem look younger dan dem rightful age.)

The reason for all this, is that I just read an article on CNN about a young Miss, named Diem Brown who has passed. She had cancer. She first had cancer at aged 23. I am thinking, poor child, passing at age 32 is quite young. I am a minute older than 23 (ok then 32), I am not sick, practically half of Jamaica has/had Chick-V, MTH has not and will not get it.

Here is the story, I must have bored you all…

Good day MTH, I can’t comfort you any better than Ty did in her post. I may just add that it was better that they took the person from someplace rather than to harm you there or on the streets…plus is you don’t have to get your documents back.

Ty
Blogger
Blogger

I thank God that you are safe, that all the thief stole was your money…the money you will get back in abundance…you life and safety are intact…

I thank your guides who made you step away at the right time so that you did not have to face the theif….

You got back all your belongings, so The universe is on your side….

I pray that the money the thief got is a blessing…to fill the empty stomach of him and his family…to temper his spirit and to remind him that God has another way for him/her…

Ase!!!

Recently Teach mentioned having a mentor is important. It is important to watch/study people who have done what it is you are doing/want to do. Here is a nice little story that I am sure you will all enjoy:

Pretty girl. That said…she is being over-exposed for all the vain “things” in this society. I need her to continue to hone her craft and gain more notoriety as an actress. I hope she and her manager are aware of the “curse” of winning that award, getting push to the front and no work afterwards. Why? because they become over exposed and known for that one instance.

Nothing she selling attracts me…she is photogenic that’s it.

I’m a mean bitch aren’t I?m, lolol…deadpan honesty comes off as such.

So here is a natural remedy that I found on the tube to help battle the chikungunya esp if ya got fams in Ja or you plan to visit.

Ps, ppl are still dying from it there. It breaks my effn heart. The other day my ex called my grammy and as he and her spoke she confided in him (he had called her several times prior but she kept hanging up on him thinking it’s a “scamma” so I volunteered to join the line and had no intentions of eavesdropping on their convo) that she was in crippling pain and had embarrassingly wet herself, uncontrollably. When I heard her say this my heart tore the hell up!! It still hurts at the thought. I pray for her. She is the love of my life. She fuels me. Without her I seize to exist … anyhoos, this shit is out of hand and since their weren’t any know cures… I wanted to see what can help to combat this pathetic sickness instead of just overdosing the ppl dem pan effn panadol! Kmft…

Suh here’s what I’ve gathered so far… HTH! (hope this helps)

Natural Remedy:-

1. As soon as yuh have the fever… buss dung 2 limes in a glass of water and a hard dosage of vitamin C fi kill the fever asap… or as we have read here… onion or garlic will do this trick.

2. 1000 iu Vitamin C capsules or the equivalent of 1 lemon if yuh wanna keep it natural.

3. 1 tbsp (tablespoon) of Moringa Powder

4. 1 tbsp of Aloe Vera Gel

5. 1 pinch of Cayenne Pepper

6. 5 cloves of Garlic

7. 1 whole onion (if small) or half (if large)

8. 1 tbsp of Turmeric Powder

Make all that into a thick paste consistency of 1 tbsp with 1 ounce of coconut water or distilled water to wash it dung!

Have a tbsp 2×/day wid yuh coconut water and a you dat! I would say we can add this onion benefits not this regimen as the onion is from the same garlic fam and they both have these sulfur compounds in them called “organsulfer” which acts as an insect repellent! A perfect combo against this plaguing chikungunya.

Sexual debility: Onion is a potent aphrodisiac and stands second only to garlic. For this, the white variety is most effective.

Urinary tract infection: Boil some onion in water till half of the water evaporated. Sieve the onion water, leave to cool and drink. The anti-bacterial properties help to relieve the burning sensation in urination.

Yaz, the last remedy I’m currently doing with garlic…boil garlic, blend it out and drinking it warm in the AM, with lemon juice and cayenne pepper…urinating alot.

The respiratory one done with garlic since I was a kid…toast the garlic, add olive oil let the garlic fry out, cool, strain into honey, mix drink am and pm for asthma and bronchitis.

You didn’t look sad to me Toy, but I remember I held on to your arm and part of it was missing and we talked about the message you got

It was about 4 days ago. I dreamt that me, Toy and you were in this room( even though I didn’t recognize Obara I got the sense it was you and you didn’t have a top on. I wonda if it was Oshun, if the eyes are slighty slanted i always assume is Oshun)Toy was sitting in the corner she didn’t have anything on either( even though I don’t know what Toy look like I called her name and I went down and held her arm and from her elbow down was missing (that was kinda wierd) and you said to her Toy I’m going to tell you something and you said something to her. She and I started to talk about what you told her , at the time I could remember what you said but now not one word mi can memba. Toy I would like to ask yuh pardon cause is chue mi glad bag did buss in di dream mek mi probably figet di message yuh were told. Cause di Meji put her head on my chest and said, ” Do you know why your hearts beating so fast? ( mi did bare up top tuh) and mi seh no but I can feel the weight of the energy and then she said it’s because your husband is five miles that way and she pointed in the direction that he was In and I asked you mean my soulmate? And she didnt say yes or no she just said he loves you so much that it could just come over you and crush you. ( sounds morbid like that but those were the words) The End.
