Natural Wart Removal
A wart is generally a small, rough tumor, that can resemble a cauliflower or a solid blister. Warts are generally on hands and feet, but can be in other locations. Warts are common, and are caused by a viral infection, called the human papillomavirus(HPV) This viral infection can spread from one part of the body to other parts, and sometimes by contact with skin of an infected person, but not always. It is also possible to get warts from using towels or other objects used by an infected person. Human Papilloma Virus can easily penetrate the skin through cuts. At risk are people who walk barefoot or somehow get exposed to the virus.They typically disappear after a few months but can last for years and can recur. Although if left untreated, they can spread into clusters.
Essential Oil Help
Less Evasive Treatment:
- Tea Tree oil is the least evasive and serves as an antiseptic that will prevent any possible infections that might arise. It will immediately soothe the skin and clear out the ongoing infection. It can take longer than Oregano, but is easier to work with. It may dry out the surrounding skin because of the continuous use, but will not harm it.
- Apply 1-2 drops Tea tree oil to a cotton ball or pad and dab the wart 2x daily. The wart usually will disappear in 1-2 weeks.
Quicker, but harsher removal:
- Use a Q-tip and apply Vaseline around the wart. Saturate a clean Q-tip in Oregano oil and place directly on top of the wart. The trick is to not get the Oregano on the surrounding skin. Place a large enough, cloth bandage to cover the wart.
- Everyday, keep applying Oregano on top, through the bandage. Try not to get the bandage wet, but if it falls off, do it again. Remove the bandage in 3-5 days and the wart should fall off. (Repeat if necessary)
- Use duct tape to hold bandage on, if necessary.
- If there is an open hole, in the skin, exposed after the wart removal, apply Lavender to the hole until it heals to prevent scarring and infection.
|Wart after 2 Days or Oregano application|

|Wart after 9 days Oregano application|
|Wart after 11 days Oregano application|
Warning: Oregano is a “hot” oil and can cause irritation to the skin and mucous membrane; use sensibly and carefully. Avoid eyes and sensitive skin. Avoid use with children.
Lemongrass can also be used, if a fungus wart is suspected. Put a cloth bandage on top of the wart, drop 1-2 drops of Lemongrass through the bandage to keep it saturated 1-2x daily. It should fall off in about 1 week.
Internal Cleansing: If there are several warts to clear up, proceed with an internal body cleansing.
- Follow a juice and water fast/cleanse for 3 days. (Dr. Christopher has a good one, http://www.herballegacy.com/Three_Day_Cleanse.html)
- Also take a Liver Cleanse each morning http://theresanoilforthat.blogspot.com/search/label/Liver%20Cleanse
- There are also several good Total body cleanses on the market. Allow your body 5-10 days for a good clean out of the system.
- After the cleanse, Take Rosemary oil, internally. 3-4 drops in a capsule, then filled with carrier oil for 1-2 weeks, 2x daily.
