  2. Put – the onions into your socks
  3. Place – your feet into your socks with the onions on the bottom
  4. Sleep – with your socks full of onions on

The Benefits Will Make You Cry

Phosphoric acid is what makes you cry when you cut into an onion and is the same thing that’s doing most of the healing work here. It enters your bloodstream through the bottom of your feet and gets to work purifying your blood.

Making sure your blood is clean is crucial to your overall wellbeing. It strengthens your immune system, lowers your cholesterol, prevents cancer, and reduces inflammation. You won’t necessarily see the benefits, but you will feel them over the long-term.

An added benefit is that onions have anti-bacterial properties and will purify the air around your feet. Your socks might end up smelling a lot better than you think. Just don’t reuse the onions.
