Treatment Of Warts

  • These unsightly little skin blemishes are caused by a virus.  Most often appearing on the hands and feet (plantar warts). 
  • Warts can be difficult to eliminate and can take a long time before they are completely gone.  Then again, sometimes they just seem to disappear overnight! 
  • Many people like to seek natural wart treatments before seeing their doctors. 
  • There are several essential oils you can use to help resolve the warts. Tea Tree, Lemon, Bergamot and Cypress are the most commonly used.
  • Thyme linalool and Cinnamon leaf are affective against these growths too, but are used more as a last resort. 
  • The easiest home remedy for warts is simple. We recommend using Lemon oil first - apply 2 drops to the wart and apply a Band-Aid. Do this daily for a couple weeks. If you see no improvement; you may need to try Tea Tree next. Again, apply a couple drops and cover with a Band-Aid.
  • Cinnamon leaf Thyme linalool should be tried last. Cinnamon leaf can be a skin sensitizer and so caution should be used. Thyme is very strong and can also cause skin irritations. These should never be used on children or the elderly. 
  • Cinnamon leaf and Thyme linalool should be mixed with carrier oil such as Jojoba. 
  • To 1 teaspoon of Jojoba add 10 drops Cinnamon leaf (or Thyme linalool). Blend well, then apply to wart and cover with a Band-Aid.

1. Lemon - 12 drops
2. Tea Tree - 4 drops
