WARTS CURE - NATURALLY
by Jeanne Rose
in a Series - Treatments
Warts and Moles are caused by a
virus and are an external sign of an internal potassium deficiency.
The real cure (and prevention) is to eat enough foods that contain
potassium or take
supplement form. Bananas are a good source of potassium.
Cider Vinegar is also high in potassium and beneficial to
many health problems. Natural apple cider vinegar can also be taken
form and can be applied externally as well to the wart. These are
some of the problems and natural treatments that are discussed in
Aromatherapy Studies Course as well.
When I was a child I had lots of warts
on my hand. I did not know how to treat them. I don’t know where
I heard this folklore but I know that I stole an apple from a store,
cut it into as many pieces as I had warts and then rubbed each piece
on each wart. Then buried the apple deep in the ground – an waited.
As expected, the warts fell off. …

But over time, I learned another way
that is quite infallible.
Jeanne Rose remedy for Wart Removal:
First, make sure you are
clean, that your skin is clean. Take a bath (use salts in the tub)
and soak those warts for at least 15 minutes. It will make them
soft. Then take pumice stone, rub, and scrape off as much wart as
you can. This should not cause pain. If it is painful you are
scraping too hard.
Dry the wart with a hair
dryer on low until the wart is dry.
Apply a ring of Vaseline
around the outside of the wart to protect healthy skin.
With your finger, apply
essential oil of
(Artemisia arborescens) which is a blue-colored
oil to the wart. See formula in Step 10.
Cover with a corn pad.
Cover with airtight
waterproof tape or bandage.
Leave this on for 2-3
Take off the bandage and
the wart will be reduced or gone. If it is still there,
Then repeat step 1- 7
every 2nd or 3rd day until it is gone.
FORMULA: 20% Litsea cubeba
which is anti-viral; 20% Thuja occidentalis (lvs); 60% Artemisia
arborescens (Morocco or Oregon)
Some other remedies:
Apple cider vinegar is popular home remedy for warts. "I was plagued
by a wart on my index finger. I soaked a piece of cotton in apple
cider vinegar, put it on my finger and wrapped it waterproof tape
(or duct tape). In the middle of the night, I woke up from a dead
sleep. My wart was throbbing. The next day the wart was gone without
From Amy K: "I've used this natural
treatment on myself twice with success (and my sister has used this
method too with similar results). Mash up a clove of garlic so it is
pulpy and moist. Apply amount needed to cover the wart and affix
with a waterproof band-aid. I find using a corn pad works as it
keeps the garlic on the wart, and then covering with a band-aid to
keep it all in place. Keep on overnight if possible. As the garlic
is a somewhat acidic it MAY cause some discomfort, but it does not
harm the skin. In my experience, one application worked. The warts
started shedding immediately, and my warts were all gone within 3
Soaking some gauze with a mixture of baking soda and
made into a paste and tape this gauze over the mole. Leave the gauze
on overnight. This treatment is reported to reduce and possibly
remove moles and warts over time.
Anonymous: "Simply apply the purest
honey you can find on your wart, keep applying it morning and night
until the wart disappears. You should start to see changes within a
couple of days. Duct tape takes weeks."
A nurse sent us the following remedy:
"Peel the skin off a potato as thin as possible. Take a small piece
of potato skin and rub the POTATO side on the wart twice a day. In
one or two weeks, the wart will turn black and fall off. There is
apparently a chemical in the potato near the skin that kills the
wart. I have used this for warts large and small on several people,
and it never fails."
