This is why at OneHowTo we'd like to tell you about all the home remedies using onion that we know of.

Onion is a very useful home remedy to remove localized fat. If you are concerned about your "double chin", do what our grandmothers recommend and cover it with roasted onion. Just cut very thin slices of onion and roast them lightly in the oven and place them on your neck for about 10 minutes. Then wash the area with very cold water and especially if you have sensitive skin, apply a moisturizer. If you are consistent, your double chin will disappear.

Onion is very beneficial for hair. In fact, there are several home remedies that use onion for hair.

For example, onion is very useful to prevent hair loss. Cut an onion into quarters and add three tablespoons of dried nettle in a half liter of hot water. Leave it for half an hour and strain it. Use cold liquid to rinse your hair after washing. Do not worry about the smell, nettle neutralizes the pervasive "perfume" of the onion.

If you want to quit smoking, grandmothers recommend the "onion cure", which consists of eating raw garlic and onions daily in a salad. You'll also need to stop eating fried and spicy dishes. If you continue this treatment for three or four days, you will begin to forget about tobacco and eventually reject it completely.
