Tells how to prepare a decoction of onion peel.
Tip from personal experience – the amount of onions used in our family, not enough to regularly drinking tea made from onion skins, or at least a more or less long course of drinking. Therefore, before using this decoction you have to accumulate a certain amount of onion skin, and then begin to use it. In the fall, when on the shelves appears the newly harvested onion in the supermarket you can just dial with onions advanced, and onion peels, as funny as it looks – but we all know what that is for us.
Tea from onion peel should be drunk immediately after preparation, as during storage it loses its properties.
The tea is prepared as follows. A handful of onion skin rinse well with water and pour boiling water.
Adjust the amount of hulls to get a drink of Golden color. Since onion skins are different, the exact dosage is the same for all cannot be determined...
After 10 minutes the tea can be drink by removing the husk. Drink this tea you need in the evening, shortly before bedtime. The drink is a neutral taste, so drinking it is quite pleasant.
