(Allium cepa)

Allium cepa is also known as red onion and can be grown anywhere. This plant has been used in folk medicine for many years.

Red onion can be applied to the skin in compresses for acne, arthritis, and congestion, and used internally for worms.

These days herbalists use the plant for treating such ailments as earaches, haemorrhoids, and high blood pressure.
