If you, a family member, or someone you know has a wart or two, you might want to pass along a tip for warts. Warts are awful, ugly, and just downright annoying! Plus, if you are not careful and don’t take care of it, they will spread!
We had an issue with a wart and I had heard about this trick from many of my natural living friends as well as from my essential oils encyclopedia.
So I decided to give it a whirl before going to more extreme methods of wart removal. All I did was apply oregano oil with a q-tip to the bottom of my toddler’s foot (where the wart was) for a few days.
My friends had tried and recommended Oregano oil for treating warts and appreciated this approach instead of the many other methods…freezing, meds, etc.
So when one of my own was faced with it, I really wanted to give this a try and I am so happy that I did! It was painless, natural, and effective!
I now share this with everyone that I know, so I thought “why haven’t I told everyone on our site?!?”
Well….. now I have told you 🙂
I did want to make a couple of notes:
- I can’t be certain, but there may be a varying degree of success based on the essential oils that you use. There are different qualities and grades. As I have stated, I use the more affordable essential oils (found HERE). Remember that for every 15ml of oil, you get 300 drops. I only applied 1 drop 3 times = a very cheap solution in the end compared to many other options! In addition, Oregano oil can be used for so much more too!
- If you or your “patient” have sensitive skin, you will want to dilute the oil with 1 part essential oil and 1 part carrier oil (like coconut oil).
- I applied the oil when he was in bed as it was on the bottom of his foot and I didn’t want him “walking” it off. It had a chance to soak in all night and do its job!
Since this time, I have also tried it on another wart on a different child, same amazing results, she can’t even remember having a wart! It really works!
Now, if I have ever seen one beginning to form, I will jump on this method for a natural and affordable solution!
