Onions and Insect Bites


Onion Insect Bites

To celebrate our 225th anniversary, we’re looking through our archives to bring you 225 pieces of wit, wisdom, and fun in a series we’re calling Almanac Treasures (see more of them here).

To soothe and heal insect bites, put a slice of onion over the bite and leave on for 30 minutes to an hour. The stronger the onion is, the more effective it will be.
