Stephanie S. Gardner, MD, has been a rehearsing dermatologist for as far back as 20 years. This specialty is considered the most popular in this field.

Getting rid of warts is not as easy as ABC. Sometimes, even moxibustion with new drugs on the basis of celandine or surgical removal of the growths only temporarily solves the problem, after which the wart appears again, and even overgrown with new growths! The thing is that the cause of warts is a virus, which means that it is possible to fight this problem only with antiviral drugs, as well as with drugs that strengthen immunity, since the defenses of the body are the main deterrent in the appearance of these horrible outgrowths.

This is where the time comes to be surprised. It turns out that the essential oils of some plants have the properties described above, which perfectly suppresses the activity of the virus or strengthens the immune defense to counteract the appearance of warts.


№1 Essential Oregano Oil

Oregano oil is the unique remedy that helps to remove warts on your hands or warts on face painlessly. The activity of this remedy is explained by the presence of a phenolic compound called corvacrol, which “kills” salmonella, E. coli and has a powerful effect on the human papillomavirus. For the removal of a wart, just a few applications of the remedy is enough.

To combat papillomas and warts, it is enough to mix the oregano oil with coconut or olive oil in a ratio of 1: 8 and apply the prepared mixture to the affected area 3-4 times a day. And after the application of the agent, it is desirable to glue the build-up with a plaster, because limiting the access of oxygen to the wart can speed up the process of its removal.


№2 Tea tree essential oil

This oil is rightly called the best remedy for the human papillomavirus, and hence the ugly warts that appear on the body. Its anti-inflammatory, antiviral and antibacterial effect on the body is due to the content of more than 100 terpenes, which, penetrating the skin, disrupt the vital processes and reproduction of pathogenic cells.

To effectively remove the warts, you should use pure tea tree oil (and not its mixture with soybean oil). It should be applied to the skin without forgetting to dilute it with water or aloe juice in a 1: 1 ratio. Duration of treatment varies from 15 to 30 days. And in addition, it is also recommended to make baths, adding 10-15 drops of oil per liter of warm water and spending 20 minutes every other day.


№3 Essential oil of lemon

To quickly remove the intrusive wart, and, moreover, to prevent its reappearance, a remedy is required that simultaneously has an antiviral, immunomodulatory and soothing effect (because HPV affects the cells of the nervous system). In this regard, a real find for the owner of warts will be essential oil of lemon. According to the healers, it is necessary to use this remedy in undiluted form, applying oil on the cotton swab and applying it to the wart for 5-10 minutes to 4 r / day. But it is not recommended to apply this oil to healthy skin areas, as it is possible to get a burn. By the way, after noticing the process of wart reduction, in addition to the procedures already underway, it is recommended to mix lavender oil with wheat germ oil and rub this remedy into the existing wart at night.


№4 Carnation essential oil

To solve the existing problem, it is necessary to dilute 4-5 drops of clove oil in 50 ml of water and lubricate the resulting wart solution 3 times a day for a month. By the way, clove oil is an excellent anesthetic, which helps to relieve pain in case of painful warts on the soles of the feet.


№5 Peppermint essential oil

Among the variety of essential oils used to combat warts and other cutaneous neoplasms, one of the most effective means in this regard is peppermint oil. Its cosmetic properties are due to the content of menthol, which acts as a good anti-inflammatory drug, which has a selective effect on viruses. In addition, mint oil acts soothingly to the nervous system, which is also very important, given the negative impact of papillomavirus on nerve cells.

Having decided to remove the wart with this remedy, several times a day, apply a cotton swab soaked in undiluted oil, directly to the wart and keep it for 5-10 minutes. By the way, using peppermint oil to fight the papilloma virus will have to be patient, because the result will not appear until after 1.5-2 months.

Mixtures of Essential Oils from Warts

In cases when single-applied oils do not give the desired effect, it is necessary to try special mixtures of essential oils, which have long proven themselves as effective means of solving this problem.

Mixture number 1: Children older than 8 years, as well as adults who have fresh small warts, are recommended to use a gentle remedy for warts. Take the following ingredients:

  • 10 drops of incense;
  • 10 drops of lavender oil;
  • 10 drops of essential oil of grapefruit seeds.

Store this mixture in a closed glass bottle in the refrigerator, do not forget to apply it to the skin 2-3 r / day. Remember only that lavender and incense will not work quickly, it will take time for a complete cure. This remedy is suitable even for children with sensitive skin.

Mixture number 2: If you need a stronger remedy for warts, you are recommended to pay attention to the following mixture:

  • 1 tbsp. jojoba oil;
  • 2 drops of tea tree oil;
  • 2 drops of eucalyptus oil;
  • 2 drops of Manuka oil;
  • 2 drops of Schisandra oil.

This mixture is the most burning, and therefore use such a tool mainly to combat plantar warts, where the skin is less sensitive to irritants. If you decide to use this mixture to fight warts on the face and intimate area, first perform a sensitivity test by applying a piece of oil to the inside of the elbow bend and waiting 10 minutes. If you decide to use this oil mixture, apply it directly to the skin growth, with the help of a cotton swab, 2-3 r / day.

  • 6 drops of lavender oil;
  • 6 drops of tea tree oil.

Such a preventive agent, applied up to 2 times a day, will allow to forget about the existing problem in the form of warts.

Since an important role in the prevention and treatment of warts is the state of the nervous system (the virus of the papilloma affects the cells of the nervous system), it is especially useful to use such essential oils that have both antiviral and immunomodulatory as well as soothing action. Such oils are many – this is both the aroma of lemon, and the essential oil of pine. Lubricate warts with oils several times a day until the complete recovery. You can apply hyssop or patchouli oil on a bactericidal plaster and walk with it during the day, and remove the patch for the night.

Important: Before using any essential oil for the first time, check to see if it causes allergies in the child (for adults this rule also applies) – apply essential oil diluted half-and-half with vegetable oil to the inner surface of the forearm or elbow fold and see whether it caused redness or itching. If there is irritation, do not use the essential oil for treatment.
